Yoga and Yoga Therapy from Somatic Perspective
"Nourishment and Depletion - The Nervous System" 
At Kilnhanger, Surrey
An annual residential training.  This year, module 1 & 2 are put together as a week long residential at Kilnhanger, in beautiful Surrey Hills, England, UK.
A 50 hours intensive training designed for yoga teachers/teacher trainees, holistic therapists, psychotherapists, or keen movement practitioners. It is an enquiry, a vigorous investigation into our innate ability to balance "nourishment & depletion" to understand what supports healing and maintenance of the body-mind and move toward optimal health.  And at the same time, fully accepting and welcoming all aspects of ourselves as they are in the current states as a starting point.
It is done mainly through experiential study of the Nervous System and Embryology/Infant Developmental Movments, along with other body systems and helpful practices.
We then look at application to yoga and other therapeutic modalities and to our daily lives.
The aim of this training is to provide practitioners / teachers with tools and understanding in a way that they will be able ot create / integrate into their own unique body of work.

Workshop with Aki Omori & Jean Hall at Trigyoa, London, UK 
"Differentiate, Activate, Integrate - Ligaments and Bones"  
“... at birth every joint in the body is composed of membrane or cartilage, not bone. There is softness everywhere, the body is like liquid gold. There is less of a sense of division than at any other time.” Huge Milne

Join Aki + Jean in a weekend of experiential workshop sessions to explore, feel and understand how bones, ligaments + joints have their own distinct functionality + role within the body. You’ll discover how they relate and work together to create wholeness of activation and full movement connectivity and integration. We’ll delve into the theory of our structure, but more importantly into creative movement explorations through experiential anatomy along with somatic yoga practices to cultivate and notice how subtle awareness and small changes within us have the most profound effect on how we feel, breathe and move our body in the circumstances of our lives.

For further information and booking, please go to Triyoga Website.

Body-Mind Centering Workshops in North West London: 
Second series of workshops will start this autumn.
Dates TBC.





Workshops, Retreats and Training Courses in 2018: 

April 8th, Sunday  
A weekend Yoga and Somatic workshop with Aki Omori and Jean Hall at Triyoga London 
"Opening the Window of Resilience" 
- Repatterning, reconnecting, rebalancing through movement + body awareness.

Through breath and movement exploration, discussion and sharing, this daylong workshop will enquire into the relationships between the health of the mind and the body from the perspectives of the brain, nervous system and developmental movements.

Learning about the primal functions of the brain and the nervous system, and how our individual history contributes to our unique tendencies, we can then apply this understanding to our experiences and awareness of movement. By taking time to slow down so we can recognise and sense into the fine texture of sensation and motion to help reconnect us to our intuition and inner knowing, we become more able to re-pattern, repair and re-balance ourselves in life’s on-going process of self learning and realisation.
Time: 10am - 5pm
Cost: £75

Yoga and Somatic Turkey Retreat October 21-28, 2019


Yoga & Somatic Retreat
Turkey, 21-28 October 2019

Escape to Turkey this autumn for a week of yoga and somatic exploration. Expect a gentle practice, plenty of time to relax, and delicious healthy Turkish food in the beautiful and quiet setting of Suleyman’s Garden, a traditional organic farm on the Mediterranean sea. In October, the extreme heat of the Summer has passed and the mellower weather is ideal to unwind, enjoy the sea, and embark on exciting excursions.

Programme
Begin the day with a short meditation and breathing practice (pranayama). After a slow breakfast, we gather again from 10:45am - 12:30pm for the morning yoga and somatic session. From lunchtime you are free to roam until the second session from 5:30pm - 6:45pm. Go for a swim in the sea, lounge by the pool, take a nap or a coastal walk. The morning session tends to be more active and the afternoon practice more recuperative in general, but each session will be adapted to the energy level and needs of the group. There will be one day off when retreatants often opt to go on a Jeep excursion to explore the surrounding sites.

Aki integrates a somatic approach to the ancient practice of yoga. What is “somatic”? “Soma” in Greek means body. In a somatic approach, we learn to experience the body from within instead of observing it from outside. It is a playful and inquisitive way of learning about oneself through the body-mind, improving mobility and ease, and supporting a calmer and positive mindset.
  
About the venue
Suleyman’s Garden is a charming and delightful traditional organic farm, with terraced vegetable fields, orchards, beautiful and vibrant gardens and stunning sea views. A beautiful rocky swimming cove is just a short walk away through the woods. Nested in an unspoiled part of Turkey’s Turquoise Coast, the retreat is located on the world-famous Lycian Way, a marked walking trail along the dramatic, mountainous coastline.   

Suleyman and his family grow all their vegetables and fruits organically for the kitchen to concoct healthy and flavourful meals for guests. The food is vegetarian and prepared in traditional ways. Staying at Suleyman’s is like being a house guest in a very relaxed and friendly atmosphere.  


What participants say
“Thank you, Aki, for SUCH an inspiring retreat - the setting was breath-taking, the food was divine, and the group of people were so lovely.  With your energy, words and guidance you created a supportive environment.  I returned home feeling grounded, rested, revitalised and inspired.  An amazing experience. Thank you for everything.” Natalie, yoga teacher

“Aki’s in-depth knowledge and generous spirit make her teaching a unique experience. Little gems of insight and understanding continuously arise during her sessions, which profoundly shifts awareness and perception so there comes about a real felt knowing in the body and new confidence in moving.” A senior yoga teacher
