Hanna Somatic Education is an investment in well-being for the rest of your life!
If you are feeling stiff and sore and having difficulty moving with ease, Hanna Somatics can help!
Hanna Somatic Education (HSE) is a unique system of neuromuscular education (mind-body training) that helps you regain and enjoy more comfortable movement for the rest of your life, no matter how old or young you are. HSE teaches you how to use your own sensory awareness to release chronic patterns of pain you may have been holding in your body for years, due to injury, stress, repetitive motion, and habituated postures.
Essentrics dynamically strengthens and lengthens your muscles!
Essentrics is a dynamic workout that simultaneously lengthens and strengthens every muscle in the body, resulting in greater joint mobility and lean, long muscles. Essentrics is a completely original workout that draws on the flowing movements of tai chi which create health and balance, the eccentric strengthening of ballet that creates long, lean, flexible muscles, and the healing principles of physical therapy.
