    Hanna Somatic Education® with Lawrence Gold

    Somatic exercises improve whole-body coordination and create a feeling of “being better put together.” Learn how to do somatic exercise sequences to produce specific effects in yourself. You will feel looser, quicker, and better balanced. Long-term pains may disappear during the weekend.

    Once you’ve done an enlivenment weekend, you’ll know how to do somatic exercises by yourself for best results.
