Can Hanna Somatics help to improve my posture?

Hanna Somatics EducationPosture can become distorted for many reasons and often becomes an unconscious way of holding ourselves and moving. Once it becomes unconscious, we are no longer able to easily change our posture so we stand more erect again. This is a prime example of what Thomas Hanna called Sensory Motor Amnesia.

As your postural muscles lengthen and relax with Hanna Somatics movement exercises, you will naturally come into better alignment. In addition, specific exercises can be offered to you in private sessions to help with your particular postural situation. Your willingness to investigate and change how you sit, stand, and move in your daily life is another aspect of Somatics Education.
