Somatic Exercise Classes in the
Tradition of Thomas Hanna
with Ray Greenberg
Somatic Exercises in the Tradition of Thomas Hanna
Much of the pain and discomfort in our bodies is created by the chronic overuse of muscles. Many sufferers of back pain, stiff achy joints, migraines and tension headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome, scoliosis, fybromyalgia and other chronic problems can heal themselves using these exercises.
These easy to learn movments are done slowly and with minimal exertion but the results are incredibly powerful. In a few short weeks, problems that seemed intractable and perhaps impossible to cure often improve markedly or dissappear entirely. All that is necessary to practice these gentle exercises is an ability to get down on the floor and a willingness to move slowly and listen to your body.
Once you learn the routine, you can avoid the return of chronic discomfort by practicing for as little as 20 minutes each day. I am so confident of this method and have seen so much benefit from it personally that I offer a 100% money back guarantee to any student who signs up for a 6 week program and practices for a minimum of 1 hour per week on their own. If such a student is not completely satisfied, I will return their money no questions asked at the end of the 6 week course or anytime there after.

Take 44/55 west to the intersection withAlbany Post Road. Go left on Albany
Post. After passing the Tulhilltown Grist Mill on right
keep an eye out for McKinstry Rd. At McKinstry go right. From the intersection
of Albany Post and McKinstry my house is 1.1 miles on the left. After passing
Burnt Meadow Road on your left, McKinstry goes up and then down. As you come
down the hill I'm the third mailbox on the left. Turn left and come down the
drive. The entrance to the yoga studio is around the side and the only entrance
at ground level ( no porch ) of the big house.
Ray has been a yoga practitioner for over 35 years. An honors graduate of the
University of Pennsylvania, his livelihood has been based on television production,
art publishing and now yoga supply.
Until 1997, Ray only shared his yoga practice with friends
and relatives. Then he started teaching a class in New Paltz and soon after was
offered the opportunity to participate in the inaugural teacher training program
of well known master Sri Yogi Dharma Mittra. Ray recieved his certification and
his Sanskrit name "Yogeshvara
Om", in September of 2000. In March of 2018 Ray experienced his first Hanna Somatic Workshop taught by Carisa Borello of the Living Seed in New Paltz, NY. Immediately recognizing the benefits, Ray began practicing every day and in July of 2018 received his Somatic Exercise Class Teacher Training at the Somatic Systems Institute in Northhampton, Massachusetts.
According to Steve Aronstein, Director of SSI, one can't be a teacher unless the students are actually learning. Taking this to heart, Ray does his best to teach not only the exercises but the theory behind them in every class.
