Primal Vinyasa®

Let movement be medicine for your psyche, body, and soul

The majority of bodily aches, pains, restrictions, and injuries are the results of losing touch with our instinctual movement skills and from posturing ourselves in response to chronic psychological stress.  

You were born with the intelligence of how to move your body. You instinctively learned to build an inner sense of stability, strength, and adaptability as you rolled around on the floor, rocked, and crawled. You knew how to move, and you knew you were capable and resilient. Then, life happened. 

Within the fascial web of your body exists the story of your life. Every time you felt insecure, your body felt this. You positioned yourself in particular postures to mask feelings and to soothe fear. Your body became used to these habitual postures and movements, and your emotions became locked in your cellular memories, creating limiting patterns in your tissue.

 

Customized Primal Vinyasa® + Somatic Meditation classes can liberate you from the limiting stories of your past and reunite you with the innate and instinctual intelligence of your natural human design. 

The results:

Feeling more grounded & body-wise

Ability to map psyche-body connections

Improved posture

More clarity & vitality with less stress & pain

Knowing how to move to feel your best

Inner sense of safety, stability, & adaptability    

Here's what Denise, a certified yoga teacher, had to say about her first customized Primal Vinyasa® experience: 

 

“I am feeling parts of my body that I don’t normally feel! That core work was awesome. Most of the movements were new to me. My posture feels more upright, I am feeling more space in my shoulders and my core is awake."

“During meditation I had an emotional release that came out of nowhere. I don’t always have an emotional reaction in class and when I do I know its something special." 

-Denise DelSignore

Here's what Dain, former VP of Finance and Strategy at Natural Habitat Adventures, had to say about his customized Primal Vinyasa® experience: 

 

"Amanda is an incredibly gifted teacher who deeply understands the psyche-body link. Through her movement classes, I’ve discovered so many areas of “cobwebs” in my body that I didn’t even realize how limited my range of motion was until she helped bring awareness and movement to those areas that rarely get love. Working through these restrictions has helped me feel so much better in my day to day movement and helped undo years of bad posture from being behind a computer most of the day!"

-Dain Lewis
