Standing/Seated Movement Page 1

This section has been designed as an alternative way to experience Pandiculation and Total Somatic Movement. The material in this section combines specific Total Somatic movements and Pandiculations, awareness practices plus workshops involving standing and sitting scenarios. The audio classes encourage you to deepen your awareness to your internal world and learn how to recalibrate.

Total Somatic Practice 1
Standing and walking detailed awareness

This video encourages you to deepen your awareness to how you move, walk and stand. This insightful practice allows you to take the knowledge and skills from this session and adopt them into your everyday pursuits and activities.

Total Somatic Practice 2
Standing Pelvic roll and Flower

Within this video, you will experience the Pelvic roll and Flower movements, deepening your awareness and recalibration skills. These Somatic Movements enable you to create versatility and flexibility within your nervous system, noticing when you are moving into a green or red light reflex postural pattern. However, within this video, you will learn how to find a healthier neutral whilst standing.

Total Somatic Practice 3
Standing Side bend

This video will encourage you to explore releasing the trauma reflex postural pattern in a standing position. The Total Somatic movements and pandiculations will help you to gain a deeper understanding of how to sense and feel where neutral within your pelvis actually is, not from your subconscious postural patterns.

Total Somatic Practice 4
Standing Back Lift

The standing back lift video will teach you how to fully release the Green Light reflex postural pattern. Taking the Total Somatic Movement Principles from the floor to standing and growing the movement further to fully release through your back is experienced in this video.

Total Somatic Practice 5
Releasing hip tension & increasing diagonal movement

This video delves into the importance of releasing tension in and around your hip joints. Once you experience an increased sensation of movement, learn how to deepen your awareness to increasing your movement patterns across a diagonal plane. To create smooth, efficient walking, diagonal pandiculations are important for healthy muscle memory.

To learn more about how you move, Watch the workshop Neuromyofascial Web & Somatic Movement found within the ‘Recordings’ section.

Total Somatic Practice 6
Softening the tension within your shoulders and hips

Learn a standing version of how to pandiculate and release tension in and around your hips and shoulders. Due to the 3 reflex postural patterns that can occur, your shoulders and hips can become very tight and limited in movement.

Total Somatic Practice 7
Eye, Jaw and neck Pandiculations

A large portion of neck tension is connected to the level of tension you hold in your jaw and eye muscles. This video can be experienced either standing or sitting. If you are prone to feeling dizzy, please be seated for this and break the video up in to smaller sections to suit you. Learn how to create variety and ‘spice’ for your brain, teaching pandiculations that move in different directions to each other.

These audios are designed to deepen your internal awareness and allow you to grow in your somatic movement skills. By taking on board the information within these audios, it can help you take the principles and techniques of somatic movement from the floor to your daily activities. By developing a daily awareness and recalibration practice, you can see how somatic movement can become part of your lifestyle. By developing a mindful approach to how you move, sit and stand is very powerful. These audios also allow you to develop a mindful practice which can help you release tension and move freely. You can see how a few minutes at different times during your day can add up to many hours of self care.

To deepen your knowledge on why pandiculation is so powerful, please watch the workshop “The Power of Pandiculation” which can be found in the “support material” section, under the heading “Recordings.”
