Pilates and Hanna Somatic Movement are systems of controlled exercises that engage the mind and condition the whole body. Hanna Somatic Movement is a rapidly effective form of neuromuscular (mind-body training) movement re-education that retrains the brain and the way in which it senses and organizes muscles and movement. Somatics retrains the brain to "remember" how to relax and move previously tight and painful muscles.
Pilates picks up where Hanna Somatics leaves off. Pilates is a blend of coordination, flexibility, and strength training that improves posture, reduces stress and creates long, lean muscles. Pilates takes a balanced approach to body conditioning so the body moves as an efficient, holistic system in sport and daily activity. Our Yoga and Adult Dance Classes complement Hanna Somatic Movement and Pilates training by challenging students to continue to develop balance, flexibility, control, coordination, strength and endurance. The Gyrotonic Expansion System with its characteristic, three dimensional, spiraling, wavelike movements push the boundaries of spinal mobility developing poise and grace.
In addition to specialized movement and athletic training, we have significant experience in the post rehabilitation training. We share a work closely with Farmington Valley Physical Therapy, which is located in our same building. This partnership allows the SOMA Movement Studio staff to aid FVPT clients as they transition from rehabilitation to mainstream activities.
In partnership with FVPT, SOMA Movement Studio is an official training center for the Pink Ribbon Program, a Pilates-based exercise program designed to meet the needs of breast cancer survivors recovering from the effects surgical and radiation treatment.
