How to practice effectively

Somatic Movement Education is practice with awareness – Thomas Hanna called his very recommendable book The Body of Life ‘Creating new pathways for sensory awareness and fluid movement’

Here is an excellent video explanation of how you can master movements skillfully: in silence and slowly. Frequent increments of daily effective practice for a limited duration is best, which is what we would like you to do in your Somatics home practice. Motor planning – imagining you do the movement with as much detail as possible – increases your ability to perform the movement (to the extend you could imagine it) and we use this knowledge especially if someone is in too much pain to tolerate any movement.
