Learn how to directly experience your body! Most of the time people are not in their body at all. We use our body mechanically. Somatic lessons will bring you into the present moment and you will begin to experience your body directly in the embodied state. As you get better you will be able to be present in all of your daily activities.

Eight Week Customized Program

During our eight-week program you will discover your body’s natural holistic connection. In these lessons you will learn how to restore your natural elastic qualities, how to move better, and let go of habitual patterns that are holding you back. Students will learn how to be in their body and move from an embodied state. Learning how to be embodied will alleviate stresses and anxieties.

These lessons are for advanced practitioners and teachers of Tai Chi, Yoga, and any martial art or movement discipline looking to further develop their practice. It’s also for people seeking to overcome injuries and those wanting wellbeing.

You will be guided though simple movement patterns that will free you from postural habits. Each session will be carefully designed for your specific needs based your assessment and previous lesson. We will evaluate your progress weekly and adjust the curriculum to get the best results in the least amount of time.

By the end of the program you will have experienced a profound shift in both mind and body. Many people have overcome years of chronic pain, injuries, and achieved a noticeable increase in strength and mobility after just a few short short weeks.

Somatic Restructuring

Reawakening the Mind’s Control of Movement

Students enrolled in the 8-Week course will receive a copy of Bryson’s text on his Somatic Restructuring Method. Below is a sample copy of the introduction.

Somatic Restructuring

Thanks to the somatic pioneers we are better able to understand the finer principles of the ancient meditative and movement traditions.

Bryson created Somatic Restructuring after many years of training in Western and Eastern Somatic traditions. His approach focuses on restoring the elasticity and integrity of the holistic structure of the  body. Once habits are resolved freedom of movement is achieved.

“The fascia framework provides a kind of tensional force that is crucial to the upright structure of the skeleton. We are not made up of stacks of building blocks resting securely upon one another, but rather of bones, muscle, and fascia, whose stability relies not upon flat-stacked surfaces but upon the proper angle of the bones and the balanced tension in the fascia.”– Tom Myers

“Storing up the Jin like drawing a bow. Mobilizing the Jin like pulling silk from a cocoon. Releasing the Jin like releasing an arrow.” – Wu Yu Hsiang, Tai Chi Classics

Fascia & The Myth of Aging

It’s a common myth that as we age we lose function, mobility, and strength. The real reason some people decline is due to their lifestyle and how that lifestyle affects their body and mind. If we are of the mindset that we will age and decline then that is exactly what you will do. However, if we understand that our body is a living, intelligent, and dynamic structure that continues to learn and grow aging will become a process of exploration and growth.

Much of what people believe to be disfunction is actually a lack of knowledge of their fascial body. Healthy fascia is elastic and pliable, stretching and moving without restriction. When one is inactive or experiences a trauma the fascia loses its integrity and compensation patterns follow. Once we begin to compensate our fascia knots up and this limits our function, mobility, and we lose strength.

If we can shift our perspective of our body to incorporate our fascial body then possibilities begin to open up for us. We begin to understand that our body is not a machine but more like a dynamic bio-tensegrity, or a wholistic fascia web of support.

To blaze new trails we must get out of our comfort zone, learn to move and think in new ways. Through this learning habits will fall away as new possibilities dawn and the body will begin to move more freely as the fascial body unbinds from it’s past traumas.

Somatic Restructuring Self-Assessment

 All somatic methods require the practitioner to work ‘internally’ and this is what is meant by ’embodiment’. When we are embodied we work holistically. Once this embodiment is established then our perspective on life changes, our thoughts begin to calm down and gradually movement becomes natural and enjoyable. Once you learn the somatic method  you will seamlessly incorporate it into your daily life.

Bryson’s Somatic Restructuring lessons have been some of the most interesting somatic work I’ve experienced. It’s helped me to heal injuries and reinvigorate movement practices. Like finding a skeleton key to movement, I’m deeply grateful

Richa Jhaldiyal
Since I began Somatic Fascia Restructuring lessons with Bryson I have come to a whole new understanding of my body and how I move. I love walking and this had started to become difficult. The classes made me aware of my habitual patterns that were causing the aches and pains. Thanks to the techniques and perspectives that Bryson has shared with me, I am developing skills that make walking so much easier. I tread more lightly and move with less effort and that makes me so happy!

Bryson is a wonderful teacher and I am very grateful how the universe conspired to get me to his classes!

I’ve been very fortunate to have taken both meditation and Buddhism classes from Bryson for several years now. He is a skilled teacher and cares deeply about his students. I’m a healthier and happier person because of his teachings. If you’re looking for a different way to view and live your life, it’s really worth exploring the ideas he is teaching.

“Somatic Restructuring is the missing piece of the movement puzzle. I have been attending classes for the last several months and am noticing a change in how I move throughout the day. There’s a lightness and bounce with everyday movement which is becoming effortless. I’m grateful to have access to this new approach to learning how to reconnect and use fascia.”

Kathy Smith
“I have had chronic back, hip and leg pain for over two years. MRIs showed herniated discs/slipped disc for L2-L5. Nothing seemed to help – including anti-inflammatory meds, neuropathic meds, 2 rounds of PT, 3 spinal injections, chiropractic sessions and an anti-inflammatory diet. The private Somatic Fascia Restructuring sessions with Bryson helped more than anything else. The depth of knowledge that Bryson has is amazing. I am continuing to take the online SR class and expect even more improvement.”

Amanda Baughman
“Somatic Restructuring with Bryson is a great class. Bryson introduces movements that are easily practiced. Each session builds upon the last. As an avid walker who also enjoys hiking, I am able to walk at a quicker pace, more efficiently. The concepts taught apply to all movement from walking to yoga to yard work and beyond. Highly recommended to keep your body healthy and strong.”

Fantine Kerckaert
“I’ve really enjoyed Vidya Method’s S.F.R.’s classes! Bryson has opened a whole new world of insights into how our bodies function and move. Using the techniques he’s provided, I’ve already noticed big improvements in my balance. I highly recommend this course for anyone interested in improving their range of motion and balance.”

Barb Laurash
“Bryson has created a program based on his extensive knowledge of human anatomy and movement. After consistently practicing Bryson’s techniques, happily reporting that my toe now bends, lifts, and curls separately from the other four toes! I also gained better facilitation of walking, better balance, and no hip weakness or tensor muscle soreness experienced. Amazingly, Bryson helped me accomplish this without any face to face meetings. It was done on line through Zoom as a private client. Bryson truly understands our human anatomy and what it needs to move in the best, most advantageous way.”
