Regular meditation practice is a way of mindful living that allows you to re-connect to yourself and live from a deeper purpose. Sandra introduces you to easy-to learn Breath-Meditation and Somatic Meditation practices, that build your awareness, connect you to your deeper essence and release stress and tension in your body and mind.
Somatic Meditation Classes guide you to mindful breathing, stop the chatter in your mind, and allow you to come to a deep stillness from where healing occurs. The somatic approach of meditation is particularly effective for healing of trauma and guides you to live in the present moment again. The practices are based on original Tibetan and Taoist teachings and offer a loving approach to fundamentally embrace yourself with a new sense of acceptance and self-love.
Body Awareness and meditation classes are set in serene and relaxed environments where you can experience being fully immersed in the present moment. Being in connection with your body, you will be able to reach a deep sense of relaxation and feelings of unity in body and mind.
Sandra teaches the foundations of Somatic Meditation practices, that you can easily integrate in your daily meditation and mindfulness practice. Even for experienced meditators these teachings are a valuable expansion to their meditation practice, as they offer a unique approach to meditating from a deeper felt sense of your body awareness. Through Somatic Meditation we connect with the inherent wakefulness, that is already present in the body. These teachings are inspired by the most advanced teachings of Tibetan Buddhism which state that true realisation is found in the body and nowhere else.
Sandra shares her experience from her own meditation training path with her main influencing Buddhist teachers: Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, Reginald Ray, Pema Chödrön and Thich Nhat Hanh. Her training in mindfulness and body awareness has started during her Somatic Psychotherapy and Breath-Therapy training in Switzerland (in the 1990’s) and has been mainly influenced by teachers such as Peter Levine, Fritz Pearls, Alexander Lowen, Ilse Middendorf and Jack Lee Rosenberg. Sandra has enjoyed developing her body awareness since the age of 15 years and has been practicing various forms of martial arts and dance ever since.
