London Contemporary Dance School's yoga as a somatic practice


Sorry, you missed this event, SIGN UP to get information on our forthcoming shows

Wed 13 December, 3 - 5pm 

Yoga has a rich history of both Eastern and Western influences; how its practiced and taught can vary from following precise postural instructions to a more somatically influenced creative practice. Join Susanne Lahusen to look at how to balance tradition with fascially inspired ideas such as exploring elasticity and fluidity as opposed to predominantly stretching and holding static postures. This will be a practical class.


Teacher's Biography

Susanne Lahusen’s interest in somatics started when she helped to set up a collection on the early 20th century Central European Dance, and started to explore the roots that led to the various somatic practices of today. She has a BEd in Movement Studies and Sports Science, an MA in Dance, and certification in Yoga, Pilates, Gyrotonic, and the Alexander Technique. She currently teaches somatics at London Contemporary Dance School, trains yoga teachers for Yogacampus, she runs experiential anatomy and yoga sequencing courses, and also works as a private movement practitioner. Whilst respecting the unique characteristics of the various disciplines which she has studied, Susanne’s approach to teaching has evolved from an awareness of the elements that are fundamental to all movement.
