Sustainable Body classes combine Somatics and Yoga to decrease pain and increase range of motion, and increase awareness of habits in our regular daily movments that contribute to our pain.
Somatics, from the Greek word soma, meaning the body as experienced from within, is a movement therapy that employs mind-body training to manage muscular pain and spasticity, improve balance and posture, and increase ease of motion.
Hanna observed characteristic postural difficulties in people of all ages and in all walks of life. He also noticed that certain procedures were extremely effective in helping clients regain control of muscles that were holding them in these postures and restricting their movements. These processes became known as Hanna Somatic Education®.
In creating Hanna Somatic Education (HSE), Hanna hypothesized that the body’s sensory-motor system responds to the stresses and traumas of daily life with specific muscular reflexes that become involuntary and habitual contractions.These contractions cause stiffness and soreness. Eventually, the individual suffers from sensory-motor amnesia (SMA), a loss of knowing or sensing of how muscles feel and how to control them.
