Somatic Yoga Workshop

A journey through the body!

During my yoga practice, I always found it difficult to understand the anatomy of the body and its functions. It was hard to learn all the difficult words by heart and the position of each and every organ, muscle, or bone.

By embodying individual body systems, we gain in-depth knowledge about their functioning and apply it immediately in real practice. Through visualization and attention, we change the whole body awareness.

By initiating from the muscles, the skeleton, the fluids, and the organs, we facilitate our movement and consciousness of body and mind.

What to expect

In this workshop we will get to know our own bodies better through play and exploration. Based on the principals of BMC and Sensit Yoga. We will take a closer look at the:

  • SKELETAL SYSTEM: lower limbs, upper limbs and axial skeleton
  • ORGAN SYSTEM: heart, lungs and intestines
  • FLUID SYSTEM: cellular, extracellular fluid, blood and synovial fluid

The workshop is a combination of exploration through movement and touch. The theory that I will present will help you get a better picture of the body and its structure and physiology. I will transmit the matter in an accessible way that is easy to understand and apply. It is about becoming curious, childlike, and innocent, so you can let the body reveal the knowledge it was born with.

It is literally like walking through a children’s anatomy book. Maybe one of the greatest adventures you have experienced.

About the facilitator

When Lorien finished her 500hr Teacher training in 2019, she was full of enthusiasm to share this beautiful practice with the rest of the world.  Lorien had gained knowledge and new insights about herself and yoga.  She knew that, like life, yoga is a never ending journey which is beautiful.  Not forgetting that we are already perfect as we are, in yoga we go deeper and learn something new every day. The classes are never the same, with people feeling differently every day and challenges to work with.  There is always something new to discover.  Yoga keeps you curious and awake like a small child.  It gives you back the energy to do what has to be done, with joy for the small things in life. Lorien is constantly reminded of this after teaching a yoga class, and knows she has found one of her vocations in life.
