Harvest Yoga is proud to host the Essential Somatics®

Somatic Exercise Coach Training in Melbourne, Australia

Martha Peterson is returning to Australia to present her popular Somatic Exercise Coach (SEC) Training, Level One to a limited number of students. She is the author of the book, Move Without Pain and developer of the Pain-Free Somatic Exercise series. You will learn how to help your clients/students improve sensory motor awareness and muscle function as well as relieve back, neck, shoulder and hip pain through the use of Somatic Exercises.

Somatic Exercises (as developed by Thomas Hanna, Ph.D, author of the book, Somatics) prepare you to move well! They are “corrective exercises,” which restore sensory motor awareness and control to the brain and muscular system. They are an excellent complement to any movement practice, physical training or rehabilitation program. Incorporating these exercises and the principles of somatic movement into your primary practice will allow you to teach your clients safe, gentle methods for chronic muscle pain relief found nowhere else. Your clients will be able to do more of what you already have to offer them (yoga, Pilates, athletic and fitness training, dance), with fewer injuries and less muscle pain.

This comprehensive 3-day course students will attain a fundamental grasp of the core principles of Hanna Somatics and Somatic Movement: the science, philosophy, methods, and assessment techniques. Students will learn how to instruct the basic Somatic Exercises for maximum benefit to themselves and their clients/students.
