"We wear our stress response in our bodies as 'defense posture.' The structural distortions and tension patterns are a testimony to, and a physical anchor for, events that overwhelm our body-minds.”

Somato Respiratory Integration (SRI)
Somato (Body) Respiratory (Breathing) Integration (SRI) is designed to offer you new options in your experience of your body and your personal healing. It educates you to your body’s rhythms and inner wisdom through focused attention, gentle breath, movement and touch. SRI provides you with a means of placing your attention on your body, the vessel of human spirit, and provides a tool for focusing your attention in a way that works for your healing and empowerment.
Somato Respiratory Integration exercises are designed to help the brain reconnect with the body and its experience. The goal of Somato Respiratory Integration is to help you develop lifetime skills, safety, strength, wisdom and love in relationship to the experience of your body, its vibration, structure, and energy. Through reconnecting your breath, touch, focused movement and attention, you are able to experience the body more fully and instantly shift your state of consciousness to one that supports trust for the body-mind and their life experience.
As we become safe to feel and experience the reconnection to our physical selves it becomes easier to release traumatic events from our past that allow for:
• A more flexible, integrated experience of the spine and body-mind
• Easier release of structural distortions/"anchors" to our past
• Increased sense of peace and ease
• Improved posture and deeper breathing
• New options to deal with life stress
• Empowering oneself to heal and transform their life experience
