This is a free/donation class with a recommended donation of £15 (£5 of which goes towards red squirrel conservation in Cumbria and the Lake District).Lucia's Transparent SomaMan Graphic

My group classes are accompanied by the opportunity to ask questions after the session. I give verbal guidance on how to set yourself up in your own personal space so you can do your movements within comfort. Please feel free to contact me, Karen Douglas de Fenzi, for further information;

Often I hear: “I’ve tried 5 or 6 different things for my stiffness and pain that gave me temporary relief, but I want to do something to get myself out of pain for the longer term.” And then after tying one or a few of my private sessions or group Hanna Somatics classes, my clients tell me how surprised and relieved they are by how much better and more confident they feel and alive within themselves.

This is because we can hold excess tension within us without realising it and much of the pain we experience seems to come directly from muscles which have become chronically contracted over time. Hanna Somatic Education is an educational process through which you learn more about yourself, your own internal subjective experience, to gradually gain more freedom, control and communication between your brain and your movements.

“Five years ago I could not get up out of bed in the morning or stand and walk from sitting to go upstairs without excruciating back pain. I was diagnosed with degeneration of my spine and advised to have steroid injections and not to go fell walking any more.”Lucia's Transparent SomaMan Graphic
