‘Kelly Ferris is a long-time student of Sondra Fraleigh. She is certified as a somatic movement educator RSME through Eastwest Somatics Institute and ISMETA. A dancer and university professor of dance with many years’ experience facilitating learning and change through somatic modes.’

Land to water yoga is a unique contemporary style of yoga, grounded in processes of Shin Somatics as developed through our work at the Eastwest Somatics Institute. Much yoga today emphasises physical competition, having lost the original intent of spiritual healing and self-awareness. Yoga means "to yoke": it signals our kinship with the environment and all forms of life. In practice, yoga can be a psychophysical means for transforming personality—progressing through enjoyable shapes and movements that anyone can do.

This unique new form of yoga maintains yoga’s original intent of spiritual healing and awareness and offers a way to deepen clear seeing and a calm mind, urging one past his or her limited ego. It is based on five stages of infant development and the methods of Shin Somatics® Moving Way. Its progression moves backward from the most complex movement in terms of balance to the least: from walking to floating (from land to water), providing the opportunity to retrace our personal human development back to its watery soma source.
