What is Abhyas Somatics?
Somatics is derived from the Greek word ‘soma’, meaning ‘the body in its wholeness’. The somatic practice developed by Navtej Johar at Studio Abhyas firstly involves a fine scanning of the body to register sensory-prompts that are constantly erupting within the body.
“Somatics is the field which studies the soma: namely the body as perceived from within by first-person perception” (Thomas Hanna, 1995). Ofcourse, it is much more than that, but let us just stick to this definition for now as it is highly pertinent.
