HSEC Level 1 (Victoria, BC)

  • Sunset Labs 401 Herald Street Victoria, BC, V8W 3N8 Canada (map)

This is your last chance to complete the HSEC 1 prerequisite for the CSE training in Canada beginning March 2018! Please note that HSEC 1 is not an introductory course, and completion of an Essential Somatics® Fundamentals Immersion Course is required for eligibility.

This comprehensive 3-day course is for movement, medical, and fitness professionals who have a background in Hanna Somatic Movement and want to use their knowledge and experience to help others. Incorporating Hanna Somatic Exercises and the principles of Hanna Somatic Movement into your primary practice will allow you to teach your clients safe, gentle methods for chronic muscle pain relief, injury prevention, and self-care.


This course is open to movement teachers, fitness trainers, professional bodyworkers, therapists, and medical professionals, and those intending to share Hanna Somatic Exercises in a professional setting.

1. Students are required to have participated in a Move Without Pain Fundamentals Immersion Course. Alternately, proof of attendance at a 6-week Myth of Aging series or similar series taught by an approved Essential Somatics somatic movement teacher will be sufficient to fulfill this requirement.

2. Required reading: 


$800 USD (full tuition)
$725 USD (early bird tuition if paid before Nov. 1, 2017)
Please note: all course fees are listed in USD

For those who have already attended the HSEC Level One, you may review the course again for 50% off the full price. Please contact for payment details.


Class Schedule:
Nov. 17-19 | 9AM-6PM
(There will be a 1 hour lunch break each day.)

Please be sure to bring a personal yoga mat, water bottle, pen and paper, and wear comfortable clothing that permits movement. Each student is responsible for his or her own transportation, lodging, and food during training.

This course is taught by Theresa Evans, CCSE.
