With appreciation for your gifts as an innovator, creative teacher and mentor. Somatic Stretch for me is a discovery that allows me to relax my body as well as my overworking mind and feel more nourished in my heart and soul.

Two years ago this weekend, I took my first stretch class via video with Lilian. It was magical.

The knowledge you have of how the body works and can be strengthened and supported throughout its life is so thorough, and so finely tuned. I find it inspirational. So, a big thanks to you for all that you have done and continue to do :))

After class, I feel very relaxed, and much less tense in my whole body but particularly in the shoulders, hips and back. I feel more in my body, I feel embodied. I am more aware of my body and feel optimistic that some of my seemingly endless and various symptoms of body pain can be reduced without having to use pain killers or other expensive and all too often ineffective treatments. Also a sense of calmness, peacefulness, a feeling or renewal and readiness to pick myself up and keep going.

Hi Lillian, just wanted to let you know how much I love the video of somatic stretching. It compliments my mindfulness meditation so well and is also helping my scoliosis. It has the best stretches for the iliopsoas group.

The stretches pinpoint specific areas so exactly, it is like getting to know parts of yourself with a precision that is incredibleâ€¦.. each stretch is like a work of art – the movement coordinated with the breath, and the feeling when one finds the place that is “just right.” “â€¦. the feeling of alignment is so delicious! And the release of tension so wonderful. â€¦..
Last night I had my husband do the neck and arm stretches as he was having some pain and he loved them. So intense, the arm stretches. He went right to sleep after doing them.
The forward stretch has been amazing for me. I’ve always had this tightness across my low back, and even with yoga, Pilates, and swimming and whatever I needed to do I could never fully feel that unwinding that you speak of, and suddenly it started to happen.

With these last few weeks of doing Somatic Stretch, my body has opened up in ways that has never happened, and Iâ€™ve been doing yoga, Pilates, ballet, you know, modern, everything I could find, to help. And it helped but not to this extent. So Iâ€™m so grateful to be part of this program
I just find amazing value in the exercises in Level 2 now and I’m kind of overwhelmed at how powerful they are, and how right on what I need for my healing.

I’ve had your book and stretch cloth for over ten years and it remains my default exercise program. I love it. Thank you so much.
These exercises are becoming a bit like meditation for me……I breathe and relax away from the pain and I feel so much more balanced when I finish.
