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.

This comprehensive 3-day course students will attain a fundamental grasp of the core principles of Hanna Somatics and Somatic Movement: the science, philosophy, techniques. Martha Peterson, author of the book, Move Without Pain and developer of the Pain-Free Somatic Exercise series, will teach you how to facilitate awareness in your students/clients and how to instruct Somatic Exercises for maximum benefit.
