Some fun stuff is happening in April. First, I'm adding a new class to the schedule: Wednesdays at 1:00pm you can join me for Somatics in my private SE Portland studio.
I'm running my Free Your Whole Body 4-week online series on Mondays April 9-30 at 4:30pm. You can see all the offerings below or over on my Think Somatics website.

We can not get away from stress. It's everywhere, from work to traffic, from news to the dinging of our social media apps. Every stressor that enters our day, enters our bodies as well, with reflexes that make us cringe inward or rev up to fight or flee. Our typical daily stressors aren't actual emergencies, but the way the nervous system interprets them trigger muscular responses in our bodies. And if we habituate those responses every day, without releasing the tightened muscles we are physically and mentally holding stress in our bodies. Come learn simple ways to notice, and release the stress that's limiting your true freedom of self.

Since I started doing Somatics I no longer where orthotics, inserts or squishy tennies with more bells and whistles than an first addition iphone. The soles of my feet actually have more tissue too.

If you have a hard time falling asleep, staying asleep or are woken up during the night to go to the bathroom, you will learn a lot about how stress influences sleep patterns and bladder control. These two things don't necessarily happen together, but the way you deal with stress affects them both.
