Calm your nervous system
Unwind stuck trauma patterns
Unlock fascia healing blueprints
Feeling stuck, stiff, tired or in pain?
These signs of distress are your body’s way of alerting you that your nervous system is stuck in a trauma loop. Through no fault of your own!
SomaSensing guides you to tune into fascia as a felt sense to interrupt the trauma response and get your nervous system into a healing state.
Healing fascia to heal trauma through the body.
Healing is not a quick fix! It's a process of awareness, acceptance and self-nurturing.
Fascia is a body-sensing organ. A body-wide connective tissue that responds to how you think, feel, move and breathe. From moment to moment.
Fascia feels strained and inflamed when your nervous system is out of tune. Resulting in chronic pain and fatigue.
It feels plump, elastic, supple, vibrant, and springy, when you are in tune.
The “startle response” is an example of how an emotional response becomes a pattern of strain that gets stuck in your entire fascial fabric. Resulting in rigidity and restriction throughout the entire body. Including the ribs, diaphragm, pelvic floor, neck, shoulders, back, and feet. Affecting how you feel, how you breathe and restricting how you move.
Fibromyalgia is an autoimmune response that is felt all over the body. Because of the "oneness" of fascia.
This is why the tone of your fascia affects your vagal tone.
Learn how to tune in to fascia to unlock movement blueprints that intuitively unwind patterns of strain and stuckness.
Fascia as a felt sense
Fascia is your fabric of embodiment
Fascia is your fabric of embodiment. It’s the stuff that sculpts, shapes, and lubricates everything in your body from skin to bone. Including all your muscles, nerves, blood cells, and all other living cells.
A mix of fibers mostly collagen and gel. It's the gel (gelatine) of this connective tissue that is the most abundant and most prone to inflammation.
This fascial matrix provides a shock-absorbing, sensing environment for living cells to interact with each other.
It's an intuitive sense that adapts to sensory input.
Abundant with nerve endings called interoceptors that allow you to feel sensations of pain, pressure, pleasure, and soothing touch. Signaling the state of your nervous system from within.
Apart from the nervous system, fascia has its own electromagnetic frequency that makes it super sensory.
Like a musical instrument. It vibrates, oscillates, resonates, and produces sound in response to sensation.
Fascia responds to all your other senses. To what you see, hear, taste, touch and smell. It’s why your body tenses up in anticipation in response to the noise of traffic and softens to the nurturing sound of the ocean. The body comes to quiet in nature. The optimum frequency for healing.
That’s because we are nature. When we come to quiet we begin to move in harmony. To an inner rhythm and motion that allows the body to take care of itself.
The intuitive way
Reconnect to your healing blueprints.
Pandiculation is a healing blueprint. It's that spontaneous "stretch and yawn" feeling that arises on waking up from sleep. Or after sitting in one position for a long time. Nature's way of nurturing your nervous system, whilst nourishing your fascia.
Dogs, cats, and new-born babies connect to this revitalising blueprint.
When last did you pandiculate?
When you lose this urge, it's a sign that your body is stuck in a trauma response. Reconnect with this and other intuitive blueprints in a one on one session or sign up to the online course.
What others say
Learning about the "calm response" is like a new discovery of a retreat, available to me any moment.

After Antoinette’s movement session, I feel a deep softening happening inside me. A vulnerability, lightness, gentleness and opening of my heart.
Yasmin’s work has shown me how to find a little peace and freedom in the chaos of my busy life and overactive mind. By using her simple movement techniques, I now understand better how to ‘let go’ and connect with a place of calm and integrity within my being.
We are all searching for inner peace amongst the noise in life. Your sessions help me find the quiet within. Since meeting you my life has become a wonderful adventure and journey to enlightment.

Registered Somatic Movement Educator and Founder of SomaSensing™
SomaSensing is a reflection of my own inner journey. From fitness to wholeness. I've always loved moving. From childhood. I can't imagine life without movement. Fitness was a huge part of my life at one time until I discovered somatic movement. I have a background in Pilates and Yoga but my somatic exploration of fascia as felt sense, led to intuitive motion. Moving any other way just feels wrong! You can work with me online or in-person in the UK from December 2021.
