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, improved posture, sensation, control, and less pain. You will go home with an illustrated manual, and videos to support your learning process. The workshop offers a creative learning laboratory for those with scoliosis and uneven posture, for somatic movement teachers, and for clinical practitioners. Discounted 1 on 1 sessions are also available for all participants.

Essential Somatics—also known as Hanna (Clinical) Somatic Education, is a hands-on technique, a movement practice, and a comprehensive system for changing the brain, nervous system and muscular function initially developed by the late neuromuscular pioneer, Thomas Hanna, Ph.D. 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. We will focus on scoliosis specific movements and strategies.
