Hanna Somatics

Hanna Somatics is a rapidly effective form of mind body re-education developed from Feldenkrais and Alexander Technique. Slow and gentle movement with awareness helps the brain to sense and organise the muscles and movement. This helps the body to reset postural balance and helps in recovery from chronic pain, stress and injury and works as a great foundation for deepening and exploring yoga posture practice.

I am trained to Level I with Align Somatics and regularly weave these ideas into movement practice.

Hanna Somatics is greatly facilitated with hands on support and clear anatomical direction and palpation in private sessions.


Mel is a very compassionate, knowledgeable and supportive yoga teacher. She is able to adapt poses to suit each participant and treats everyone individually. I highly recommend her classes. Jane

“I’ve had Mel as a yoga teacher for the past five year’s.  I was knocked over by a car, so I had to regain my balance, posture, etc..  Mel stuck to it, so that now I’m pretty much back to normal.  Now I go to her classes, not because it’s to do with any sort of recovery program, but because I really LIKE them.  She take’s the time to show you the position’s, check’s everyone’s doing it properly, gently correct’s, and we all have a good laugh whilst doing it.  A very good mix of teacher and practioner!”  John

“I have been doing yoga with Mel for over 2 years now and it has it has helped me to be more aware of my breathing and posture. Mel is a knowledgeable and compassionate teacher who cares about her students. I have problems with my neck/shoulders/arms and Mel always take this into account and allows me to work within my own limits. There is no pressure to do all the postures and alternatives are offered. Each class is different with a variety of postures and sequences.  Sometimes the classes are quite challenging, but I always leave feeling energised, but somehow calm and relaxed at the same time.”   Helen
