In these classes we are following the teachings of Thomas Hanna, Ph.D. Dr. Hanna developed a system of movement called Hanna Somatic Education. According to the Association for Hanna Somatic Education, Inc., "the process teaches the brain to relax and move muscles properly, thus improving muscle function and sensory awareness." The following link opens an article from The Calgary Herald which gives more information on Hanna Somatics Education.
