Somatic Movement for Wellness

Do You Move or Do You Mimic?

Do you find yourself experiencing stiffness or nagging unexplained persistent aches & pains… looking for a culprit such as getting older, working out too hard or not enough, physical and mental stress? Well, most likely overtime you have trained your body to mimic movement, move and sit with unnecessary clenching and hold distress in your body, amplifying all those culprits! Wouldn’t you rather move the way your body is naturally intended to move ~ with freedom and ease!

 Dana merges her years of professional experiences, higher education and health coaching skills with training from the Franklin Method ® using Dynamic Neuro-Cognitive Imagery DNI™ - a type of imagery training for movement and postural rediscovering, to help you reconnect with the way you were always meant to move and feel! Dana blends Somatic Movement with Fascia Releasing to Increase Awareness, Motivation and Positive Change.

Power Thru Movement is a unique kinesthetic understanding of our body and its relationship to our mind… the oh so powerful mind!

"After living with ALS for 9 months, I was very frustrated with my rigid movement and the difficulty I had standing, walking, and picking things up. Fortunately, I reconnected with Dana who guides me to find more choices in my movement patterns with relaxation. Dana's unique method of using breathe and imagery gives me a sense of freedom and conserves my energy by relaxing those muscles not needed. With these same concepts, she  helps me approach maintaining  posture with ease and softening the tension in my shoulders."
