This workshop addresses uneven posture, scoliosis and offers effective, non-invasive techniques for changing, improving, and preventing it. We will celebrate our curves, improve our relationship to our bodies, and explore the natural ability of the brain and nervous system to change itself, towards more mobility, improving posture, sensation, control, and less pain. All participants will go home with an illustrated manual, and videos to support your learning process.

Clinical Somatic Education (also called Hanna Somatic Education) is a hands-on technique, a movement practice, and a comprehensive system for changing the brain, nervous system and muscular function developed by the late neuromuscular pioneer, Thomas Hanna, PhD. This weekend emersion in the movement practice offers excellent self-care techniques to change your quality of life, lower stress, with benefits to all systems of the body.

Your questions are welcome!  Contact Laura.
