Our modern lives mean that physical tension is pretty inevitable.
Having tense shoulders, hips and low back has almost become the norm.
Often, we can come to feel as though we're victims to our bodies, with no clear path out of the tension that keeps building up.
But ... there are ways we can move - using the principles of yoga, pilates and somatic exercise - that make a BIG difference to the way we feel.
Enter ... The Full Body Reset.
It's time to move well
and feel well
In this 8 Week Guided Course, I'll show you how to:
> move from tense to having more ease
> gently build strength and flexibility
> learn tools and techniques that will allow you to respond to tension and stress as it arises
> develop a deeper capacity for self-kindness and inner-listening
> commit to 8 weeks of self-kindness and self-care to move well and feel well.
The truth is, your body is terribly clever.
You hold so much power when it comes to changing the way that you feel.
Through simple practices, developing your capacity to listen to your body, and a commitment to self-kindness, you can live with less tension and more ease.
This isn't a magic pill that will forever free you from tension and discomfort. It IS an opportunity to fill your toolkit with techniques and practices that help you to be responsive to your body and your being as you navigate life.

"I was quite surprised to realise just how much this gentle form of exercise could improve my body and my self.
I am so much more aware of my body and understand how I can look after myself in a kinder way."

What will we cover in the 8 weeks? Here's a brief rundown ...
Week 1: The foundational principles
In Week 1 we'll explore the foundational principles including breathing well, a daily movement 'snack', why self-kindness matters and setting up the right mindset.
Week 2: Finding ease - the pelvis and hips
In Week 2 we'll build on week one and focus on the principle of finding ease through somatic exercise. We'll begin our exploration at the centre of the body - the pelvis.
Week 3: Finding ease - the shoulders
In Week 3 we'll explore finding ease in the shoulders and arms and how this relates to the rest of the body.
Week 4: Finding ease - the spine and waist
In Week 4 we'll explore controlled and fluid movement at the spine and waist and, again, explore the ways this relates to the rest of the body.
Week 5: Centre of support - the 'core'
In Week 5 we'll explore this notion of 'core' strength and developing reflexive strength through the midline.
Week 6: Full body strength
In Week 6 we'll explore strengthening the whole body, integrating the elements of ease and support we explored in earlier weeks.
Week 7: Stretching and fluidity
In Week 7 we'll explore stretching and fluidity and put this together with 'finding ease' and strength.
Week 8: Integration and restoration
In Week 8 we'll pull together all of the ideas from the weeks prior and talk about how to create a sustainable practice ongoing. We'll also explore the power of restorative yoga.
