What to expect

Somatic yoga classes with Penny are mainly floor based and focus on integrating mind and body through a series of specialised brain-to-muscle repatterning exercises. Sequences are performed in a slow conscious flow and are designed to enliven the entire musculoskeletal system, invite gentle cardio vascular stimulation and significantly increase vital energy.

In time, joint flexibility, muscle tone and overall agility will improve considerably, but this is not the aim of the practice. Instead, the intention is to listen to the ever-changing needs of the body, whilst becoming aware of the complex interplay of mental, emotional and spiritual expression that make up our present moment experience. 

Classes are adapted to suit the uniqueness of each group, with participants encouraged to move at a pace that feels right for them.

Please let Penny know about any injuries or medical conditions you may have before the practice starts.

'This Somatic Yoga is just the best thing I've ever experienced body-wise, instantly effective, relaxing and easy-going too. I'm lucky to have discovered it.' - Barry Evans, YouTube Subscriber
