Somatics Workshop: Relieving “Tech Neck”
Presented by Nancy Nesyto-Freske
Wednesday, August 21st from 12:30 – 2:00 pm
Somatics workshops now offered on a monthly basis!
What is Somatic Movement? In general, a somatic movement is performed consciously with the intention of focusing on the internal experience of the movement rather than on the external appearance of the movement. These gentle movements are performed very slowly and mindfully.
What is Clinical Somatics? Clinical Somatics is a neuromuscular education that uses the groundbreaking technique of pandicluation to retrain muscle memory and relieve pain.
What Can I Expect from this Class? In this month’s class, we will focus on the postural phenomenon of “Tech Neck”. This is the common posture seen in today’s society that stems from the habitual use of technology. The head pokes forward and shoulders round causing neck and shoulder strain, as well as, restricted ability to breathe deeply. Somatic movements will be taught to prevent development of “Tech Neck” and to relieve symptoms and improve posture.
For those of you who are new to Somatics, no prior experience is necessary. You’ll spend the entire class laying on the floor moving slowly and gently. Everyone should expect to feel great after the class. You will receive a handout describing how to perform movements on your own outside of class.

Trauma Center – Trauma Sensitive Yoga Foundations Training
Presented by Keri Sawyer
Friday, November 15th – Sunday, November 17th
Cost $365.00 (10% Discount offered for Students with ID)
Trauma Center Trauma-Sensitive Yoga (TCTSY) is an intervention based on research from The Trauma Center in Boston, MA. TCTSY is an evidence-based adjunct treatment for complex trauma (sometimes called chronic, treatment-resistant Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) and is the only yoga-based practice accepted by SAMSHA and NREPP.
This 20 hour training is designed for social workers, mental health clinicians, yoga teachers, educators, and health care professionals who are looking to deepen their understanding of the whole-system impact of complex Trauma. The course will emphasize the core components of the practice and process of Trauma Center Trauma Sensitive Yoga and will provide specific tools to support participants to facilitate trauma sensitive movement and breath practices that are vital to the healing process of complex trauma. Through developing an understanding of complex trauma, attachment theory, and the neuroscience underpinning the TCTSY methodology participants gain skills that support healing from long term trauma. Participants will learn to foster this anti-oppressive approach to healing through a trauma informed lens. Group lecture, practice through movement and breath as well as group practicum will be offered. This weekend training qualifies as the prerequisite to apply for the 300-hour Trauma Center Trauma-Sensitive Yoga (TCTSY) Certification Program.
