Stiff neck and shoulders? This workshop will unwind the muscles that contribute to slouched posture by methodically unbinding the shoulders and neck, and freeing the fascia that spans the length of the spine. Learn how to identify the upper trapezius and levator scapulae, as well as the individual muscles of the rotator cuff and how to address them specifically using the Soma System tools. You will leave this workshop standing taller, breathing deeper, and moving more freely through your upper body.

Each of the Soma System 3-series workshops will teach you to treat your nagging knots, aches, and pains safely and effectively. Learn basic anatomy and palpation skills, and nurture an inward focus as you progress through expertly-structured deep-tissue self bodywork sequences. Soma System will reconnect you with your body and teach you to take your health into your own hands. All levels of fitness and experience are welcome!

Testimonials

I just got home a little bit ago from class with David. I don't even know where to start. What an amazing product and project you are unrolling! David ran a great class. He has a great sense of humor and great energy. I had personal breakthrough and just kept thinking about all the applications I could use this in both my Physical therapy practice and Kinesiology. Love the technique for the Psoas and pecs. Wow! With the way insurance reimburses for outpatient PT these days, being able to have these tools elicit drastic, palpable outcomes in a short time would be amazing.

Although I am very flexible and do a lot of yoga, my body often feels "tight". David addressed this at the start of the session. The fascial release using the assorted Soma tools was amazing. I attended with four friends and we all left feeling very "light". It lasted into the next day. I don't think my body has felt that way since I was a child. Before leaving the workshop, I purchased some Soma tools. The next day my adult daughter was home and we spent hours using them. She is a musician so her upper body tends to be tight. She was also amazed at the results. I am definitely going to take David's suggestion and incorporate the release techniques demonstrated at the workshop into my daily yoga practice. Thank you for showing me how to be my own body worker!

Roman and David's workshop was a completely transformative experience for my personal yoga practice. The multi-faceted products presented enhanced and deepened my understanding about my body and allowed me to experience new levels of sensation physically and mentally. I highly recommend their workshop to anybody looking to develop a self-administered therapeutic experience in conjunction with a yoga practice. The combination of the two can propel one's yoga practice in new dimensions, especially regarding injury prevention.

I never thought that something so simple could help relieve back and shoulder pain. What I love most about the double-track roller and the other products is that they allow me to heal myself and get immediate results (versus going to physical therapy or just living with aches and pains). I highly recommend these tools as a small investment to support your well being!

My clients love the double-track roller, as I can attest from their alternating sounds of pain and pleasure-- as well by the sparks in their eyes when they finish their practice. After i use the roller on my own back, I feel a couple inches taller. My back feeling incredible.

Yoga has helped to soothe my chronically tight muscles, but there are some knots that no amount of stretching can unravel. The use of Soma System™ props under expert guidance is like getting a deep tissue massage. It's the next best thing to having my own personal massage therapist.

I first used Soma System™ products at an intensive yoga teacher training. The released that they brought to my body and to my mind was so intense that i fell in love instantly. Now, as a busy yoga teacher who teaches 10 to 13 public classes a week, I find that the tools help students deepen their postures and lift their spirits. After class, I often can’t wait to go home and practice quietly with the tools myself. Soma System™ tools are like having your own yoga studio, your own massage therapist, and your own medicine man at home!

Soma System™ allowed me to discover areas of myofascial tension that I had not been aware of…. It was amazing to experience the fascia release in all these different areas. This practice brought me to a wonderful place of relaxation that deepened my yoga and meditation practice.

I was recently introduced to the SpikyLife Mat and was very impressed with the design and performance. I often get myofascial tightness and pain in my neck / upper back and was amazed how quickly the tension was reduced. My sleep quality has improved substantially and not to mention my workouts (early morning) are more intense. I highly recommend this product to anyone looking for natural ways to reduce pain and myofascial tension and looking for overall improvement in health.

As a licensed massage therapist, yoga teacher, and studio owner, I am always looking for ways to help people have a better experience of being in their bodies. I am grateful to have found Soma System™ tools that truly awaken a deeper awareness of innate healing potential. Students' eyes light up when I bring out the dual track balls and you can see lights going on as we work on opening lines of fascia throughout the body using these intelligently-designed products. I am a firm believer in the work on Tom Myers and Ida Rolf and am so thrilled to now have tools that invite, encourage and enlighten people to become their own body workers.
