Since the movements in this class are practiced both sitting, and lying on the floor, it is important that you have enough mobility to be able to lay down and rise up. Bring a mat or blanket and one or two pillows for comfort.

Learner Objectives:

  1. Learn basic principles of how Hanna Somatic Exercises changes the muscular system by changing the central nervous system that becomes compromised resulting in what Thomas Hanna refers to as sensory-motor amnesia.
  2. Gain a deeper internal awareness of their body, including postural and habitual holding patterns contributing to stiffness and pain.
  3. Learn a series of simple, gentle and slow movements to help release various constricted muscles.
  4. Empower students to establish their own practice as they enjoy the newfound freedom, ease and comfort that ensues.
