Join Pippa once a month on a Sunday from 10:00 – 11:30 am
Sunday 27 October, 24 November
Pippa will guide us through some gentle somatic and restorative yoga exercises, suitable for all body types, to help with those little niggles. Pippa Cope was involved in caring professions during her formal working years, and since retirement has been the manager of Tara Rokpa Centre near Groot Marico. She is authorized to facilitate aspects of the Tara Rokpa process and is a trained Donna Farhi Yoga facilitator with a growing interest in the benefits of Somatic Movement
“The mindful movement sessions I offer are based on years of experience as a yoga practitioner and training during my Senior Yoga Teacher training course with Donna Farhi , an internationally renowned yoga teacher. It is ‘inquiry based’ exploring things like – how I stand on the earth, move through air, connect through my core, flow.
Somatic movement is a combination of neuroscience, yoga and body – mind knowledge. It is based on healthy development movement patterns and learning where these might have gone wrong due to habits. The carefully crafted slow and mindful movement sequences help clear possible blocked pathways which might lead unnecessary tension, pain or discomfort, giving one the knowledge and ability to take control of possible existing or future problems.
Somatic Movement is gaining in recognition and popularity as a safe, fast and profound way to release and recalibrate tight muscles by retraining the nervous system and re-patterning the Soma (body-mind). It unites modern neuroscience and ancient yogic wisdom. Learn how to make the unconscious conscious and feel how everything becomes easier and pain free from your head to your toes.
