Next Live Training Weekend : August 24th-25th 2024

The SomaRoll Yoga Method is an integrative, embodiment practice. It combines Myofascial Release Therapy and gentle mobility-inspired yoga. The mobility-yoga exercises work on stabilising the joints and neutralising muscle imbalances relating to bad posture, excess sitting, repetitive stress etc. Muscle imbalances can also lead to other more serious issues such as bursitis, nerve impingement and sciatica to name but a few. Myofascial Release Therapy is not like the ordinary myofascial release that you see at the gym. We use tools and techniques that are suitable for inflammatory conditions such as arthritis, bursitis, sacroiliitis, fasciitis and other inflammatory conditions to help reduce inflammation. The method also works on re-setting the auto-pilot nervous system response in relation to how stress and trauma express themselves in your somatic body, through the waves, arches and domes that create stability through the fascial system.

A 100% science-based Mind-body method

This is a science based training. All of the methods and techniques are based on modern scientifically-proved fascial research. 15 years ago scientists took fascia out of the laboratory bins when dissecting cadavers and began to examine it. Up until this point, they thought it was just a dead clingfilm-like material that surrounds the muscles and organs. Since then a whole new field of science was emerged that addresses the mind-body connection and that acknowledges the impact of stress, trauma and depression on our bodies. This method explains and utilises the teachings of ‘biotensegrity’, or fascial based anatomy to create somatic experiences of embodied states of well-being, beyond tension. It allows you be become your own physical therapist, to address your stress levels on a daily basis and to live in a pain-free body without taking addictive and toxic meditations.  It will empower you to take the steps towards knowing yourself as an embodied and sovereign human who can experience comfort in your body and peace in your mind.
