Gentle Somatic Yoga & Movement Workshop
Hanna Somatics offers gentle movement patterns that change our bodies (somas) by changing our nervous system. Integrated with yoga, we dive inward exploring the body as perceived from within, enhancing sensory-motor communication. Using the neo-cortex and the plasticity of the brain to release stuck patterns of contraction that can cause pain. Ultimately the intent is to be free and move in functional triaxial pathways of our choice.
