To feel at home in your body.

To foster self-listening.

To meet yourself - and your body - with

kindness and compassion.

To melt tension and feel more peace.

That's ease.

Physical tension, aches and pains can make life feel so much harder.

 

Aching shoulders, tight hips, back pain ... you name it.

It can feel like your body is working against you and letting you down.

But what if there was a way to meet your body - and yourself - with more kindness; in a way that helps that tension dissipate so that you can experience ease, connection and even partnership with your body?

Join me for this free class where we will explore the gentle power of Somatic Exercise to help ease tension so you can experience more ease.

Sounds great ... but what the heck is Somatic Exercise?!

I'm so glad you asked. Somatic exercise is a mindful movement modality that:

> invites a deep brain-body connection to re-pattern persistent muscle tension.

> asks us to be present to our somatic selves - that's a fancy way of saying what it is to be a whole human - mind and body.

> acts not unlike the trusty reset button on our tech devices - giving us an opportunity to find our way back to centre time and time again.

> looks (and feels) like slow, gentle yoga-ish movements but without stretching. A somatic movement has two parts to it - contraction and release.

> can feel like a warm, friendly self-hug and a way of meeting yourself and your body with kindness, compassion and curiosity (rather than punishment, criticism and judgment).

What others say about classes with Erica

“I also wanted to add what an incredible gift you have been to my life – both in general, and in the last couple of weeks.

 

Your words, your energy and your humanity along with the amazing class content have made such a big difference.

 

I appreciate you enormously.”

What to expect in the 60 minute class:

> We're going to explore somatic exercise! We'll start with a brief introduction to some of the HOW of somatic exercise, and then we'll get moving. The class itself will focus on finding ease in your shoulders and back.

> The class will take place laying down on the floor (you can also do it on a bed if you prefer).

 

> You will need a folded blanket (or two) and/or a small pillow.

This class is completely free of charge and I can't wait to share it with you!

Frequently Asked Questions:

I'm not very 'fit'. Will this be ok for me?

To participate in this class, you will need to be able to get down on the floor and back up again. If you're unsure about your physical capacity for movement, reach out to your treating health professional. Somatics is a very gentle mobility that is not focused on strength or resistance, but rather on something called pandiculation, which is like a big body yawn. This tends to be highly accessible, but obviously nothing is accessible to every person. If you have specific questions email erica@ericawebb.com.au

When is the class?

The class is live (online) on Sunday 28th January 2024 at 10am AEDT (Melbourne, Australia time). You can check your timezone easily via Google.

Will I need any props?

A blanket or two (or pillows) and a space to lay down. Yoga mat or blanket to lay on are optional and up to you!

I have a chronic illness. Is this for me?

Short answer: yes. I work with many people experiencing chronic conditions. While I cannot tailor this class to the specific needs of every attendee, you will be invited to explore the practice within the context of your own experience - not to fit a notion of 'one way'. If you have specific questions around suitability, email erica@ericawebb.com.au
