Anxiety causes our body to contract a particular muscle pattern, and over time, this can become an unpleasant, unconscious habit.

About the event

Anxiety is more than a feeling; it is the result of your body's unconscious protective response to negative stressors...a neuromuscular response Hanna Somatics calls the Red Light Reflex.  

This causes muscle tension in our eyes, jaws, neck, shoulders, arms, chest, bellies, and legs.  This Workshop will explore the physical impact of anxiety on your posture from various positions through mindful movements. As a result, you will experience a sensory freedom from the inside out.

Reclaim your body's natural ability to relieve anxiety through Somatic movement. Join us Friday, August 4th to experience freedom from this pattern that molds our posture; causes our neck, shoulders, and upper back to ache; and keeps us anxious, fearful, and worried.

Noreen Owens, Certified Hanna Somatic Educator, will guide you through simple movements that specifically target and relax the muscles that contract when we are worried, fearful, or anxious.  Over time, this muscular pattern can become habitual, and may contribute to chronic discomfort in our neck, shoulders, and upper back that can make us feel like our head is too heavy to hold up.  By the end of this workshop, you will feel calmer, your neck and shoulders will feel more relaxed, and you will have simple tools to manage anxiety on your own.

You will be lying on the floor, so dress comfortably, and bring a pillow and a mat , if you have one.
