Service Description

This is a ‘somatic release’ class. Somatic release techniques are body-based practices & methods used to release emotions, or “energy”, such as stress, upset, anger, tension or trauma. In this practice, we journey between perpetual movement, rest, release and free movement. It's a little bit like HIIT, but deep, and much more fun. We use ‘containers’ of repetitive movements to build towards a release, both physically & energetically, and to fuel an exploration of freedom within that release. The containers build a ‘charge’ in the body, using the repetition of movements to activate the big muscle groups to metabolise stress/sympathetic energy and help with the release of tension. The practice is carefully curated to lift & lower the heart rate as a kind of ‘nervous system conditioning’. Through this process we increase ‘Heart Rate Variability’, the ‘flexibility’ of our NS and our capacity to move between sympathetic-parasympathetic. Through this form of nervous system regulation we increase our capacity to react & respond to stress. The practice ebbs & flows between ‘containers’, ‘releasing’, ‘grounding & resourcing’ & ‘rest. As we go on this journey, a lot can show up and become unstuck, but it’s not about forcing anything to happen, it's about being open to moments of releasing & opening, of letting go & softening, when we're ready and feel safe and supported to do so. This class is for anyone and everyone, including those looking to manage anxiety &/or depression, anyone recovering from trauma or health conditions such as CFS, long-covid, burnout - anything that has thrown your NS out of whack and left you feeling out of balance, with great tools & strategies for managing your mental health and emotional wellbeing. Guided and held with care by Marie who is professionally trained & well equipped to support you on this journey. Shake the Dust is a practice from the school of Authentic Flow, created by Satu Tuomela. Disclaimer: This class is a form of somatic release.
