About Gentle Yoga and Somatics

My name is Elaine Tague and I live in Hull, East Yorkshire. I teach local classes and privately locally and online: groups and 1:1.

I am a qualified Yoga Teacher and an Essential Somatic Movement Teacher. I am Yoga Therapist registered with CNCH.

I love teaching yoga and over the years it has helped my back issues. It is great for the body and for breath and for calming the mind. Relaxation is an essential part of yoga.

Then I discovered Somatics! The neck and shoulder issues I eased with yoga - gone. I thought I had worn out my hip 'overdoing' the stretching - now the pain has gone.

Read the About Somatics Section to know how it helps or join a taster to feel it for yourself. But in short, it is not an exercise class, Somatics re-educates the brain. It helps us to undo unhelpful habits and release chronic tension we are holding, which in turn releases the chronic pain.

It may be a lifetime of bad habits or sport or computer work that has led to your issue, be it sciatica, low back pain, shoulder issues, even digestive issues Somatics can help with these issues and much more

I will be running a couple of Taster Sessions with Timebank in Hull

(See Classes section)

March 5th Somatics

March 19th Seated Somatics

I also include some Somatics in my yoga and my yoga has become somatic. "I can't believe such small movements can make such a difference" and "you can see it has made a difference" are a couple of the comments I have received. Read more in the Yoga and Somatics sections.

Both yoga and somatic classes are mindful and therapeutic. For Somatics you do need to be able to get down and up from the floor.

But on April I am running a Taster session - Seated Somatics. Open to all at Timebank and after on April 8th the seated Yoga with Somatics sessions will restart.
