What we're about

Many of us have never felt quite at home in our lives. Trauma, addiction, anxiety, depression — even the stresses of everyday life — often leave us feeling fragmented and disconnected from ourselves, from others, and from the world around us. Our groups were designed with one vision in mind: to help you reconnect — to your own body, heart & mind, to others, and to the world. Our programs and classes integrate ancient contemplative teachings & practices with the latest healing modalities in a safe, supportive environment. Through meditation, movement & yoga, relational groups, and experiential workshops, we're here to support you on your journey toward cultivating greater presence, embodiment, and freedom in your life. We hope you'll join us and our community on your path to reclaiming your rightful sense of aliveness, connection, and wholeness, and find a supportive tribe of like-minded friends along the way.
Welcome hōm!

Neurogenic Yoga

hōm - center for embodied awareness

Neurogenic Yoga™ is a revolutionary technique in trauma healing and stress reduction. This practice combines yoga asana and pranayama with the body’s natural, therapeutic shaking response. This shaking response in humans, much the same as the instinctual shaking in animals, is the nervous system’s way of discharging long-held tension and trauma, or unconscious muscle contraction in order to restore the body to wholeness. When the nervous system identifies threat, vibration or shaking in the body is designed to occur automatically. However, negative social constructs and beliefs around what it means to allow ourselves to shake, tremor, or show vulnerability, condition us out of this innate release mechanism at a very early age. Neurogenic Yoga™ reawakens our body’s intrinsic release mechanism for optimal health. This technique is a simple, gentle, and profound practice that facilities the lengthening and relaxation of the psoas muscle and the release of physical and emotional stress and tension. During a Neurogenic Yoga™ session, we safely self induce therapeutic tremoring. This class begins with an explanation of the Neurogenic Yoga™ process after which you will then be safely guided through the practice and tremoring process by a certified Neurogenic Yoga™ provider. The class will end with a group check-in, discussion, and you will be given after-care instructions. Cost: $25. To ensure that everyone in attendance receives personalized attention and feels safe to have their process, these classes are limited to six people at a time. Please register in advance at https://homsouthflorida.com/class-schedule/ to reserve your spot before the start of the class.

ONLINE: Ashtanga Yoga Fundamentals

hōm - center for embodied awareness

UPDATE: Until further notice, this class will now be held via video-conference on the Zoom platform. Space will be limited -- if you wish to participate, please register in advance through our website at https://homsouthflorida.com/class-schedule (details for connecting via Zoom can be found in the class description). Space for online classes will be limited to 4 participants at a time so that the provider can safely monitor movement, offer individualized feedback and track each participant's nervous system during the practice. Participants will have the opportunity to check-in and ask questions before, during, and after the practice. ---- This Ashtanga Yoga fundamentals class offers key alignment tips and gives you plenty of time to transition between poses. You’ll start by practicing many of the standing postures of the primary series before moving into the floor postures. During the floor postures you will be given alternative methods for developing the strength necessary for transitions between postures. The floor sequencing will be an abbreviated version of the traditional primary series. This class is suitable for all levels of practice. The emphasis is not only on the physical aspects of the practice but on cultivating compassion, non-judgment, wise intention, and present moment awareness of breath and body as we move through the asanas. As the practitioner you always have the choice to do what feels appropriate for you in any particular moment during the class and you are encouraged to practice safely and comfortably. Cost: $15
