Yoga Classes & Workshops

Hanna Somatics Workshop

What is Hanna Somatics?
Hanna Somatic Education (also known as Hanna Somatics) is a rapidly effective form of neuromuscular (mind-body training) movement re-education that goes directly to the root cause of most chronic muscular pain: the brain and the way in which it senses and organizes the muscles and movement. By learning to regain awareness, sensation, and motor control of muscles - an educational process that can only be achieved through movement - the brain can remember how to relax and move the muscles properly. This process of sensory motor training creates improved muscle function and enhanced sensory awareness. Instructor: Serena is a certified Kripalu Yoga Teacher. Serena deepens her knowledge by studying with renowned teachers Judith Lasater (Restorative), Eleanor Criswell Hanna (Thomas Hanna Somatics) and Dr. David Berceli (Trauma Release Exercises).
