Deepen your understanding of Somatics and related themes.

Intro to Somatics Workshop
This workshop is for anyone who may be experiencing
aches or pain and does not want to resort to medications
or medical procedures.
If you want to break the dependance on someone else to "fix" you, learning the basics of Somatics can help you resolve your symptoms yourself, and become more self-reliant.
Stay tuned for upcoming workshop dates
In this 3-hour workshop you will learn:
the most common muscle reflex patterns that you may be “locked” in
how to resolve sensory motor amnesia that is causing restriction of movement, misalignment and functional limitations
an alternative to stretching that incorporates the brain and nervous system to re-educate the body
a daily practice of Somatic movements and exercises that you can do at home
You are the only one who can resolve your pain and mobility issues because you are the only one who can access your own nervous system. Somatics allows you to get to the root cause for long term relief.
This experiential workshop includes theory and practice to become familiar with Hanna Somatics as a way of taking charge of your own health to resolve pain. The movements are slow and gentle and safe for all body types, abilities and levels of experience. Somatics is complementary to most other forms of exercise and yoga.
This workshop is for all body types and abilities. Not appropriate if you are unable to get up and down from the floor.
"THANK YOU again for a wonderful workshop.
I have been adding the somatics to my morning practice
and noticing incredible results. I have way more energy, I can feel my whole body waking up from its stuck-ness and loosening up . . .
something so simple, fun and relaxing can have such amazing results."
