BEINGNESS through the BODY . . . 

Movement, breath, gesture,  touch , glance, feeling and thought . . .

YogaSOMATICS is an experiential practice of getting to know oneself through life movements, here on Earth, here in a body, here with thoughts and emotions, here relating with each other.  Here as-we-are.

An alchemy of ancient yogic and tantric practices with modern somatic methods, YogaSOMATICS is a dedicated space for making inner contact with one’s self through aware movement/asana, breathing, relaxation, meditation and contact bodywork

Somatic movement is sensed and shaped from within, without dependency on an outside form or authority.  Yoga is ‘union’ or that which reunites us with wholeness, that which has never been separate.    YogaSOMATICS, a return to the knowing of wholeness, through one’s own life movement, in a first-person relational experience.

YogaSOMATICS honors one’s own natural rhythms, steadily developing deepening confidence in the body and mind’s inherent capacity to balance and heal itself. 

YogaSOMATICS teachers are guides on the path, that help to give containment and inspiration to their students to make contact with their own embodied wisdom.

 

YogaSOMATICS was created by the life experience of ATEEKA, yet continues to develop and evolve with the contribution of teachers and practitioners around the world.

YogaSOMATICS with Ateeka explores asana from a fluid-body perspective . . . the breath is the first direction from which the life movements of asana emerges.  You are encouraged  to feel into asana that allows your authentic somatic identity to emerge. Asana becomes a very personal experience, as you inhabit your own sensory experience in your own unique body, physically and energetically. . . as you move, you will learn about your own inner territory and your potential in bringing yourself creatively and authentically forth into the world around you.

Opening to being-ness.  Accessing dynamic stillness.  Being instead of doing.  Yoga Somatics practices invite movement into stillness.  An open space from which we can more deeply investigate and meet what moves inside of us.   Meditative mindfulness practices and  inner exercises guide towards a inner delicate precision.  A listening.  A being-ness.

Meditative practices are drawn from a tantric attitude of inclusion and curiosity to move into life.

the heart of the practice

 

What this practice continues to reveal to me is a world of miraculous joys and open hearts amidst what can often look like otherwise. . . I look forward to sharing with you this practice that begins anew everytime we meet another with heart presence .  . . whether on the mat, in the street, on the top of a mountain or deep in a forest.    

yogaessence a distillation . . .
the gross brought back to the subtle.
It is a refined “noticing” process . . . 
It lingers and dwells in the breath . . . 
It has no limits . . . yet it lives in the cyclical web of life.

It follows the flow of water . . . 
The spin and ripple of cellular movement . . . 
Becoming life . . . 
Living life . . . 
Dissolving form . . . 

It is liquid crystalline witnessing.
