ESSENTIAL SOMATIC CLASS: 5-WEEK BLOCK 'THE MYTH OF AGEING'

THE FIRST CLASS MEETING FOR A 5-CLASS BLOCK OF 75-MINUTE LESSONS. These classes together introduce and develop a range of fundamental essential somatic movements that address key aspects of Thomas Hanna’s philosophy of movement - and the ‘myth of ageing’ that his work is designed to challenge.

Working with simple movements - and building in variations as well as new movements as the 5 weeks progress - this set of classes works through how we experience and often get stuck in each of the 3 stress reflexes - and how we can move our way out of them by re-training our brains to increased self-awareness from the inside, to take back control and ease of our movements.

As with my other workshops and 1-2-1 movement classes, these classes are for you if you experience areas of tension in your body that are hard to let go; if you have muscle or joint pain that you’re told can’t be helped (especially if you’re told ‘it’s your age’); if you want to improve your enjoyment or performance of an activity such as yoga, running, cycling, or just walking the dog!

The classes are suitable for anyone - whatever your age, gender, & level of fitness. Please contact me directly to sign up for this 5-class block, as spaces are limited to a maximum of 5 people.

The complete block of 5 classes, meeting for 5 Wednesdays in a row, costs £40 per person.

If you are interested in taking a block of classes to give you a grounding in Essential Somatic Movements from which to build your own home practice, but this time of the week doesn’t work for you, please get in touch: I am happy to set up a second block of classes with a ,minimum of 3 participants signed up for the 5-week block.
