A 6 Week Series exploring Pain Free Movement
with guest teacher Rick Harvest
"If you can sense it and feel it, you can change it." - Thomas Hanna
Somatics, in the tradition of Thomas Hanna, is a safe, gentle and effective way to release chronic pain and tension. Hanna Somatics is a process of education through movement, helping the brain and nervous system to move and relax muscles effectively. Through awareness of gentle, pain-free movements we will re-acquaint ourselves with muscles of the body that, when held unconsciously, (something we all do) contribute to chronic pain patterns. We will learn how to move with a deep sense of awareness, to regain freedom of movement, improved posture, mobility, strength and co-ordination - and to eliminate pain.
Suitable for yoga & movement teachers, massage therapists, students of all levels, & for anyone experiencing pain or who works with people with chronic pain.
