Unwind: Yamuna® Body Rolling & Essential Somatics®

With Namchi Bazar

June 26 - 30, 2022

Release pain and restrictions for a total body awakening and rejuvenation. 

Explore two modalities to support your journey of self-discovery and self-healing. Let go of unproductive holding patterns as you develop effective body-wellness routines that are easy to incorporate into your home practice. Focus on foundational movements that help you exercise without pain.

Namchi’s classes have been a life line for me. She holds space for powerful physical work and her classes are consistently fun, informative, and rejuvenating. I have noticed lasting change in my body since I began working with her, specifically regarding chronic back pain that I have had for years. Thank you for helping my body get stronger Namchi! – Hayley Newell, participant

Yamuna® Body Rolling is a workout, a massage, and a whole-body adjustment rolled into one. The specially designed balls help to improve alignment, enhance bone quality, and offset the stress of repetitive movements.

Essential Somatics® practice establishes a new level of self-awareness and re-trains the communication between the brain and the muscles, restoring coordinated movement, mobility and relieving pain.  Learn gentle movements that will free muscular restrictions and give you the tools to manage chronic stress responses.

I couldn’t be happier! My chronic pain is gone. Sharp pain in my chest that I’ve had for years is almost gone.  I am calmer and more in the present moment.  I am very grateful you shared your experience and love with us.  You are an exceptional teacher and lovely person. – Izabela, HH workshop participant
