This series is comprised of 8 individual lessons, teaching you to greatly increase awareness of and to release unconsciously held muscles beginning at the core of the body out to the periphery. You will also learn the "Daily Somatic Essentials", a sequence of exercises that can be done anytime, anywhere, in as little as 5 minutes, in order to maintain better flexibility, coordination, energy, welllness, and balance, resulting in a decrease of the aches and pains commonly attributed to injury and aging. Because this is a progressive class, please make every effort to attend all the classes.

Learn how to move in simple, yet profound ways that relieve chronic tension, pain, poor posture, and increase range of motion. The movements are slow, gentle, and appropriate for all ages and skill levels. Somatics can help people recovering from injury, as well as athletes interested in learning how to better care for their bodies and minimize injury. This work is based on the unique discoveries of neuromuscular pioneer, Thomas Hanna, who developed ways to optimize sensory-motor communication between brain and body. Missed classes can be made up at a later time, as we re-run this class regularly. Instructor: Kim Saumell. $90 per 8 class card, $14 per class.
