Hanna Somatics are powerful but simple exercises to relieve pain &
undo even long-held muscular tension through slow, mindful movements.

By learning this series of exercises, we create more body awareness,
increase flexibility and range of motion, and an overall sense of well being.

Somatics particularly help to relieve pain and disability associated with common health complaints such as:
headaches, stiff or painful joints and muscles, fatigue, poor posture, breathing problems,
impaired movement, accident trauma and whiplash effects,
back pain, repetitive use/stress injuries,
and more.

By combining gentle Yoga postures, breathing exercises, relaxation techniques & Somatic exercises
we practice empowerment through the developement of attitudes of self-care through self- awareness,
and setting intentions of creating for ourselves more spaciousness, stability and strength in mind & body.

Handouts will be given at each class so you can  practice on your own.
