Join us for an hour of Somatically Oriented Therapeutic Movement taught by J.T. Bymaster. SOTM is an occupational modality that incorporates aspects of martial arts, qigong, yoga, dance, developmental movement, group process, fitness, and nature connection. This movement practice is intended to awaken and revive our bones, joints, muscles, organs, cardiovascular and nervous systems, as well as challenge our vestibular, proprioceptive, and social senses. SOTM is an adaptive modality and we welcome all body sizes, abilities, and gender expressions.
