This is a journey of self discovery in terms of awareness and also of how doing so little can rearrange the body so dramatically. I believe the somatic approach is the way forward as a major component of all movement based therapy and should also be included as preparation / injury prevention training for all intense physical activities, such as sports, dance and martial arts.
I have trained in many different healing modalities over many years and this is the best course I have ever done for helping myself release muscular tension in my body and helping me align correctly. The realization that this is possible has given me more energy and glee at feeling truly free in my body for the first time in years.
Brilliant course and so much information in 4 fact packed days.
Came away with confidence to start using the moves on existing clients.
Notes very good and Tanya makes it good fun can wait for Level 2
A fantastic and insightful 4 days spent learning about the mind and body connection. Tanya is a great teacher! Such passion and drive describing Hanna Somatics and the mind body connection we couldn't but be thoroughly engaged from the first day, absorbing information both physically and verbally. Recommend to anyone who has a curiosity about chronic tensions that rest dormant and unidentified in our bodies.
