The essence of Georgina lies in a lifelong passion for anything that promotes true health, balance, comfort and ease in ones Soma body/mind.
Georgina is a Somatic Movement Educator (SME) Georgina completed her Professional Training in Clinical Somatics with the Ingle Institute for Somatic Education 2009.
"SME is a safe, fast, and profound way to release and recalibrate tight muscles by retraining the nervous system and re-patterning the soma (mind/bod)"...perfectly put by my dear colleague, Lisa Petersen
"If you can sense it and feel it you can change it" Thomas Hanna
Somatic Movement Education is a new scientific approach to treating pain, its science based on simple neurophysiology.
" It is a somatic pathology requiring not treatment but education " Thomas Hanna
Somatic Exercises change your body by educating your brain.
SME is not a "quick fix" ! One needs patience and persistence.
It will provide you with a genuine, lasting change as you learn to re-establish ease and comfort in your range of movement, posture and general functioning. Through Neuromuscular re-training you will learn how to maintain your suppleness and how to continue developing it. It's simplicity makes it accessible to all. SME offers you practical tools, sequences and information that can be applied immediately.

Georgina is also a yoga teacher, completed two yoga teacher trainings, Ashtanga Vinyasa Flow, Shakti Spirit Yoga (integrating the practice with the philosophies of Ayurveda, Hatha and Kriya Yoga). She has been practicing yoga and working in the health and fitness industry for 12years.
Yoga classes are strong yet slow, challenging yet calming with an emphasis on "being moved and changed by your breath" (Donna Farhi, one of the most sought after guest teachers in the world....considered the "teachers of teachers" )
Rather than focusing on perfect shape she encourages her students to move comfortably and freely maintaining the integrity of the spine as you move in and out of postures, through moving with ones breath from your core to your limbs and back again. The intention of each class is to teach her students to find clear pathways of energy through breathing fully as one holds asana (postures), re-establishing proper functional movement and strength by moving mindfully, creating ease, balance and fluidity throughout your body/mind systems. Refinement of natural and universal movement principles constitutes a safe and sustainable Yoga practice.
Private/ One to One SME and Yoga sessions include all the same principles above but the focus is one developing a unique practice to suit your individual needs on a daily basis that you can do in the comfort of your own home.
A wonderful quote from a dear colleague of mine Lisa Petersan
"Learn how to make the unconscious conscious and feel how everything becomes easier and pain free from your head to your toes "
