Sorry, you missed this event, SIGN UP to get information on our forthcoming shows

Wed 6 December, 3 - 5pm

Fascia has become a buzz word in recent years, both in movement and in bodywork practices. How can a knowledge of how fascia is shaped and how it reacts, help us with finding better movement and especially warm-up techniques? Join Susanne Lahusen to investigate how might fascially orientated movement can assist with treating pain and injuries, how it may address challenges such as stiffness as well as hypermobility.


Teacher's Biography

Susanne Lahusen’s interest in somatics started when she helped to set up a collection on the early 20th century Central European Dance, and started to explore the roots that led to the various somatic practices of today. She has a BEd in Movement Studies and Sports Science, an MA in Dance, and certification in Yoga, Pilates, Gyrotonic, and the Alexander Technique. She currently teaches somatics at London Contemporary Dance School, trains yoga teachers for Yogacampus, she runs experiential anatomy and yoga sequencing courses, and also works as a private movement practitioner. Whilst respecting the unique characteristics of the various disciplines which she has studied, Susanne’s approach to teaching has evolved from an awareness of the elements that are fundamental to all movement.
