Workshop description:

In this 2-day workshop you will learn how mindfulness and interoceptive awareness practices can restore and potentiate positive feeling and functional outcomes for you and your client. Being comfortable in your own body as you work with your client is a fundamental principle in Trager® Somatic Therapy.

Opening each day will begin in a series of guided active movements for softening and loosening our body’s structure toward eliciting a sense of grounding freedom. 

Guided demonstrations including a basic ‘hands-on’ Trager tablework repertoire will give attendees safe and spacious opportunity to practice a form of moving touch called ‘sculpting’, and, in the active skill of ‘weighing’ touch. Together, these somatic approaches inform the receiver in how they can feel more at ease, pleasantly and holistically. Participants will gain an understanding and pleasure in working exclusively within the parasympathetic response mechanism.  

Open discussions, questions and feedback will enrich our learning time together. You will be delighted to know that these somatic skills will be easily incorporated into your current self-care and professional practices!
