 Somatics for the Whole Body
Sunday, April 15, 2018
noon – 2 p.m.

Have you tried somatics yet? If you have chronic pain, tightness, or are generally achy, you owe it to yourself to give it a try. Somatic Movement, developed by Thomas Hanna, is is the best way I’ve found to reduce tension, unwind held patterns, and reduce pain. This workshop teaches you how to replace tight areas with suppleness and increased range of motion through your spine, hips, legs, thorax and shoulders. The movements are slow, gentle and easy to understand. This class will focus on opening up the whole body from your head to your feet. You’ll leave feeling light as a feather!
Somatics with a Focus on Hips & Low Back
Sunday, May 6, 2018
noon – 2 p.m.
This workshop will focus on traditional Somatic Movement, with a special emphasis on opening and freeing up the hips and low back. Whether it’s sacroiliac joint pain, low back discomfort, pain in the hip socket, sciatica or other ailments, the workshop will provide tools to manage the pain. Somatics is gentle and extremely pleasant to do and is easy to incorporate into your other movement practices. In somatics, you learn how to pandiculate and feather your movements to provide much more ease and comfort in your body. You will be amazed at how efficient and effective this work is!


Somatics for the Ribcage, Shoulders and Neck
Sunday, July 1, 2018
noon – 2 p.m.

This workshop will create more ease and freedom in our upper bodies, particularly the shoulders, neck, and upper back. We will use somatic principles to pandiculate your way to more easeful movement in your upper body. Of course, since it’s somatics, we will work on the entire back and into the hips as well as shoulders. There will just be extra emphasis on the upper body. This workshop will leave you feeling refreshed, open, and able to breathe deeply and fully with an open chest and open heart.
