A 1-day neuromuscular re-education (mind-body training) course in the tradition of Thomas Hanna.
Somatics is a system of slow mindful movements. It is a gentle, easy and effective way to help you manage chronic and acute pain. Other benefits include more ease in the body, better posture and deep relaxation. It teaches you to recognize, release and reverse chronic pain patterns resulting from injury, stress, or habituated postures.
We will begin with a short introduction – what Somatics is, why it’s unique and how it works, and then experience a variety of fun, easy and gentle movements designed to help you create a deeper sense of awareness as to the places where you hold tension in your body.
At the end of the course there will be time for questions and a review of specific movements which can be practiced at home.
Handouts of the home practice will be given.
