We will break down poses and you’ll get lots of great tips on how to feel comfortable in all poses and importantly, understand why you are doing them.

Come expecting to explore, to ask questions, meet new people who are in the same boat as you and to have a bit of a giggle. We’ll end with tea and a QnA. You will leave with a home practice that you can start to incorporate into your daily routine.

Somatics Workshop for Back Pain - £30

Do you suffer from a tight, sore or niggles in the back? This workshop is for you!

Come and work it all out in a 2 hour Somatics workshop. Somatics involves movements that free up chronic pain and tightness by rebooting the brain to muscle communication.

By practising somatic movement, you retrain your muscles to relearn their natural resting length. Giving you ease of movement in those areas. This will help your Sports, Yoga practice and improve your everyday movement and is suitable for all levels.

Good Vibes Founder, Nahid, is a British Wheel of Yoga accredited teacher with a passion for sharing the healing powers of the ancient craft with all levels and abilities. Trained by renowned international teachers such as, leading Yoga aficionado Simon Low and Judith Hanson Lasater, the God Mother of Restorative Yoga.
