Details of This Month's Speakers:


Speaker 01 - Stuart Newman - Somalogy (formerly Body Evolution)

In charting our day-to-day progress and thought processes, we see many debilitating tendencies that lead toward aging and stress. This has become so predominant in society today that many just consider it normal. It’s not.

Our personal biological compasses have sunk below the waves and dropped anchor on the ocean floor. If you feel a lack of energy, tire easily, feel depressed, have trouble focusing and want to look younger, feel brighter and more buoyant, Somalogy is for you.

Somalogy is a structural science designed by ex-ballet dancer Tyr Throne over a 30-year period.

Somalogy practitioners use a hands-on technique for “re-structuring” the body according to your desires. You then travel with this new body becoming the person you desire to be.

Somalogy is a technique that sculpts, changes and improves the shape and form of the body. This effects the and the way you move and feel. It can help you to be more flexible, powerful, attractive, dignified. Our clients report feeling much younger, more buoyant movement, physically aligned and with a far greater sense of ease walking and sitting.

We will explore some of the principles of Somalogy through discussion and participation. I will leave you with some practical techniques to use in everyday life.

Stuart Newman studied with Tyr Throne and wants to share the work he considers vital in his non-surgical rehabilitation, physical, emotional & spiritual progress over the last 4 years.
