Hanna Somatic Education

What is Hanna Somatics?

At its most basic Hanna Somatics is a way of teaching our muscles to relax and stay that way. In this way it offers an embodied antidote to pain and tension. The practice gives us the tools to free ourselves, moving us clearly in the direction of balanced strength and away from injury. This emphasis on agency (the ability to affect and change your life) is empowering, liberating and practical. After all, you’re the one that lives in your body. Who else knows you better?

Somatics offers a practical tool-kit for physical and emotional resilience, freedom in the breath and calm in the mind. On a physical level, it’s used to treat a range of conditions like lower back, neck, hip, jaw, pelvic and knee pain. It helps re-pattern hyper-kyphosis and scoliosis, and is used to heal sports injuries and postural problems. It also addresses sciatica, pelvic floor issues, repetitive strain and many more conditions.


Somatic exercises can be seamlessly incorporated into yoga, pilates, physio and physical therapy. They can transform dance, running, swimming and all sports.
