Hanna Somatic (emBODied) Yoga is not a different style of yoga but rather a movement therapy, a way of re-educating the way our brain senses and moves the muscles. Based in the work of Thomas Hanna, An original philosopher/teacher, Hanna developed a theory of somatology and of the field he named Somatics.
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.
Our muscles can become tight or restricted due to development reasons, habitual patterns, emotional stress, injuries or trauma. Small, slow and gentle movements are used to re-educate the brain so that it can relax and move these muscles more functionally.
Somatic EMBODi Yoga can be used to help:-
-Release and reverse neuro-muscular pain (chronic and acute)
-Painful joints and muscles
-Neck, shoulder and back pain
-Hip, knee and foot pain
-Repetitive use injuries
-Accident traumas and whiplash
-Frozen shoulder syndrome
EMBODied Somatic YOGA is a safe, gentle and common sense approach to reverse chronic pain. It is the only method of pain relief and sensory motor training that targets the condition of SENSORY MOTOR AMNESIA (SMA).
Sensory Motor Amnesia is the condition of chronically-tight muscles that have learned to stay contracted due to repeated and reflexive response to stress such as accidents, injuries, surgeries, repetitive tasks, and on-going emotional stress. The resulting patterns of muscular contraction that develop result in such common conditions as chronic back pain, neck, shoulder and hip pain, limited mobility, joint pain, poor posture, shallow breathing, and uneven leg length.
