The Myth of Aging
The tradition of Hanna Somatics challenges the belief that the aging process results in increased stiffness, less mobility and poor posture. Somatics is a neuromuscular re-education that allows your muscles, nerves and brain to reconnect in order to rediscover your natural movement patterns.
When you are able to release tension and tightness that is the result of habitual patterns, stress, and adapted ways of moving due to illness or injury, you have more control over your movement. As you increase your awareness of your body, sensations and movement choices, you rediscover your innate strength and your ability to relax your muscles, your nervous system, your body and your mind.
Somatic exercises help you
· reduce chronic pain
· relax your nervous system
· release muscle tension
· move with ease and comfort
· increase flexibility, muscle suppleness, and balance
· reconnect your brain and body’s communication pathways
· enhance awareness of yourself from the inside out
· advance your yoga practice, dance, and other sports performance
In this course, we will explore moving with awareness. Using small, slow, deliberate movements that increase your mobility, you will begin to move with more comfort while simultaneously reducing discomfort and pain.
Hanna Somatics is an extension of the Feldenkrais Method.
This course is taught by Kathleen Anderson de Miranda, yoga and somatic educator. Kathleen is currently in a 3-year training for clinical somatics led by Gayatri Schriefer and Siddhartha Ingle of the Ingle Institute for Somatic Education. Kathleen is also a 500 RYT in Hatha, Yin and Restorative Yoga and a certified instructor of the Nia Technique, Nia Moving to Heal, and Nia 5 Stages of Self-Healing and Developmental Anatomy.
