Shin Somatics


Shin Somatics® represents educational and therapeutic methods evolved at Eastwest that utilize the encompassing meanings of the body through Shin (Oneness) and Soma (Body as experienced). Our students learn Shin Somatics® Methods for moving consciously, as individuals and in community. Our Shin Restore bodywork is based on an understanding of movement patterns and how to facilitate these in Shin Restore Bodywork with teaching through touch


Based on infant movement patterns and human development, Eastwest's original Land to Water Yoga is a somatic form that anyone can do. Soma Flow Yoga offers additional challenges to those who are ready. Mindfulness Meditation is part of our yoga process. 


Flow Repatterning underlies all of our movement work, and the Feldenkrais Method® influences our approach. Moving with nature is a core principle of Shin Somatics, just as nature allows everything to be itself and to grow. Our Workshops have both a Certification Track and a Personal Development Track. The latter is a morning program for movement patterning, somatic yoga and effective communication.
