Where can I learn somatic movement?

I highly recommend Martha Peterson’s introductory dvd (Pain Relief Through Movement) or her book (Move Without Pain) to learn more. http://essentialsomatics.com

There are also a number of free videos online to teach you fundamentals. Here are a few:

Susan Koenig https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLZ4qHLITBsut0AfgvCATNsw_FWO5Ic7bA

John Loupos https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZAosTMEwG8I&list=PLyzUujiii1An9m7BemQvrHq3zXyTWWxhL

Esther Ekhart​ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FeJlrUPePLc&list=PL8E3E9CB97FE4D473

These movements may not look like much, but try them and notice the changes that result!

Although you can definitely learn with the above resources (that’s what I did for several years), group classes or one-on-one sessions will give you the opportunity to receive feedback, so that you are more aware of muscles that you don’t consciously realize you are tensing. This will result in faster progress, and less frustration.
