SMC® CEI Levels 1, 2 & 3 is a series of home-study courses that teaches Clinical Somatic Education self-care exercises, principles and theory as developed by Thomas Hanna. The courses are designed for highly motivated, self-driven students who are comfortable with distance learning.
These courses are intended for health and movement professionals such as physical therapists, occupational therapists, yoga instructors, fitness instructors, and personal trainers. The courses teach health and movement professionals how to instruct Clinical Somatics self-care exercises, and incorporate the exercises into their current practice.
Read this article to learn about the diverse ways in which SMC® CEI Instructors use Clinical Somatics to help their students.
Clinical Somatics exercises give health and movement professionals a highly effective way to help their clients and students who suffer from chronic muscle and joint pain, postural distortions, movement limitations, and many common musculoskeletal conditions. The exercises retrain the nervous system to release involuntary muscular contraction and change dysfunctional posture and movement patterns, undoing years of tension and pain.
If you have no background in movement or teaching, but are passionate about teaching Clinical Somatics, you are encouraged to enroll.
CEI Level 1 Course Tuition: $475 USD
