"Soma:  the body perceived from within." - Thomas Hanna

"The best relaxing and rejuvenating way to reconnect to the deliciousness of experiencing my body. 
The combination of her gentle voice and knowledge of physiological references with creative imagery
 invites an incredible freedom of movement.  Her guidance makes it so easy to move.
  It doesn't feel like a practice. It feels like a gift."  Zoe Nijsten, The Netherlands
