Level One Course Curriculum
Clinical Somatics exercises are slow, gentle, and therapeutic. The exercises are appropriate for all ages and fitness levels. In the online Level One Course, you’ll learn Thomas Hanna’s Clinical Somatics exercises though video demonstrations, audio classes, and written explanations. Periodically, you will do audio Daily Practice Classes that combine the exercises into sequences. Ultimately, you will have learned the exercises well enough that you are able to assess yourself and do what you need on a daily basis to prevent and relieve your pain and continue to improve your posture and movement.
You can download and save all of the individual audio tracks and audio Daily Practice Classes. You can use the individual audio tracks to make custom playlists for yourself based on the exercises that you find most beneficial. You have lifetime access to the course.
Level One focuses on releasing muscle tension in the core of your body: your back, waist, abdomen, shoulders and hips. The core of your body is where your posture and movement patterns begin; it is your foundation. It is very important to address problems and imbalances in your core before moving outward to your extremities.
“I spent a year lost in the dysfunctional Kaiser system…a blur of doctors, MRIs, spinal epidurals, physical therapy, painkillers, ice, heat, and TENS, and nothing helped. It seemed as if I was headed for multi-level fusion surgery. I was absolutely at the end of my rope when someone posted a link to Clinical Somatics in a Facebook back pain support group. In 5 minutes I had enrolled and was doing the first day’s practice. That night I noticed I could reach things on the tables on both sides of my bed. Over the next few weeks all the pain, which I had been spending most of my life trying to manage, went away. I have gotten my life back, the life I thought was gone for good. Incredible bang for the buck for my $45!”
“Well, of course, the first thing I love about Clinical Somatics is that it works! And the thing I like about both the Level One and Level Two classes of Clinical Somatics is Sarah! She is truly the perfect teacher–she knows her subject, imparts it with love, precision and patience and is always encouraging. Thank you, Sarah!”
“I just wanted to express my gratitude for giving me my life back! After suffering from sciatic pain caused by a chronically tight iliopsoas muscle and uneven hips for almost a year, I have finally gotten relief. After about two to three weeks into the program, I started noticing a reduction in pain, and it just continued to decrease from there. I’ve spent thousands of dollars seeing chiropractors and multiple physical therapists, none of which were able to figure out my problem, let alone help me recover. Your program is truly remarkable and the results I got from such simple movements still astonishes me.”
“Somatics has brought back my quality of life. I have a spinal condition called spondylolisthesis with pars fracture (Grade II). What it entails for me: back pain, sciatica, protrusion of vertebrae, etc. I have been using the daily Somatics exercises consistently for the past two months. I can say without hesitation these exercises work. All the benefits as described here online and in my readings have been enlightening. Moreover, living without the pain and discomfort is life altering.“
“I have been practicing the Level One Course since August. I started this journey with major psoas issues (iliopsoas syndrome) and pain in my lower back, hips, and SI joints due to arthritis, bone spurs, and slipped disks in L3 and L4. After a few days the pain began to subside, my posture was better, and I could walk for longer distances. At this time I live relatively pain free. For three years I lived with high levels of pain and could not walk longer than a few blocks. This practice is amazing!”
“Somatics has totally transformed my life. It started with back and anxiety problems. After my first class I didn’t want to move. I felt totally at ease and peace. I wasn’t anxious and my back pain was almost nonexistent. After a couple weeks of classes my back pain had subsided. After that I started doing the Level One and Level Two courses here and my body and mind has never felt better. I practice every single day. It has helped not only my back pain but has completely calmed my nervous system.”
Level Two Course Curriculum
The Level Two Course includes twice as many exercises as the Level One Course, and the exercises are more advanced. And while the Level One Course is focused on working with the core of the body, Level Two moves outward to the extremities. You’ll work with the neck, shoulders, face & jaw, hips, legs, and feet.
The Level Two Course also includes four proprioceptive exercises. The word proprioception means “how you sense your body in space.” As a result of adapting to habitual muscular patterns, many people have an altered, inaccurate sense of their posture. Their proprioception has gradually adapted over time, giving them the sense that they are standing straight up and down even though their spine is curved to some degree forward, backward, or to one side. The proprioceptive exercises help you to retrain your proprioception so that you can improve your posture and have an accurate sense of how you’re sitting and standing.
Throughout the course, you can download and save all of the individual exercise audio tracks and the audio Daily Practice Classes. You have lifetime access to the course.
*Please note: Before enrolling in the Level Two Course, you must complete the Level One Course.
