wants you to try movement education before you try pills and surgery
What is "Somatics"?
"Somatics", or "somatic" means a discipline that doesn't differentiate between the mind and the body-- because they're too interconnected to separate meaningfully.
"Somatic" is becoming more of a catchphrase in the mindfulness industry, because it sounds cool. And it IS cool!
But here at Somatic Anatomy, we go beyond Instagram-style mindfulness phrases and take you into the actual place the mind meets the body-- and vice versa.
I've been teaching efficient movement since the early 1990s, and have been certified in Pilates and personal training since the early 2000s.
I have spent hours in cadaver labs and continuing education classes, and teach anatomy for Marymount Manhattan College's Dance Department, as well as for several yoga, Pilates, and dance teacher certifications.
And when you are tired of being in pain, I can use all this knowledge and experience to get you feeling stronger, better, and more capable of doing the things you loved to do.
