I'm a sucker for images when moving - they help us to get out of our judging/correcting/observing mind and into the sensation of the moment.So while working with a client this morning on soft breathing and integrating the back, we played around a little with images. My trail of thought... lungs in lower back..expansion through… Continue reading Breathing study for when things go pear shaped
Autumn equinox is just behind us and the days really have a different quality to them - leaves are falling, there's that refreshing autumn chill in the air and if you're a knitter, your needles will be glowing from finishing that jumper before it gets really cold! I have 2 more workshops this Saturday with… Continue reading Join me this Saturday!
I'm delighted to start a new 8 week course in Foundations of Somatics this Friday at 10am - this course is aimed at total beginners or anyone who would like to go back to basics. We will go a bit deeper into each movement to fully understand what it is about, so we are able… Continue reading Foundations of Somatics starts this week!
https://videopress.com/v/eCIkhSxc?preloadContent=metadata This is me a good while ago going through some movements that remind me how I can let go of stress tension patterns in between clients.

David Butler and the wonderful power of neuroplasticity (the learning of the neuro-immune system) and how this relates to pain. He is a great, compassionate educator at the helm of modern pain sciences.
I love this lecture by Prof. Lorimer Moseley and I'm always happy to watch any of his talks and lectures again. Pain is an emerging experience made up of many different factors, which is an important bit of knowledge to have. We can modify a lot of the factors thankfully and while it means understanding… Continue reading What is pain?

The Wednesday evening class is a drop in / pay as you go class, just like the one on Friday morning at 11am. That means you can book one class, every week, only the weeks you feel like it... until the restrictions are lifted and I go back to teaching for Live&Breathe that evening! Get… Continue reading I’ve added a class in the evening
The sense of new and weird has shifted to getting on with it for me (will the schools ever open again and how do I break to my son that he WILL have to go back to school at some stage?!), as I start a second 4 week cycle of Somatic Movement classes. We'll be… Continue reading Fresh Cycle of At Home Classes starting!
