The term Somatic was coined by one of the founders of the somatic movement Thomas Hanna. The word soma is Greek and means body.
Hanna used the term to describe life as experienced from within itself. "A soma isn't a body, and it isn't a mind: it's the living process" said Hanna.

Somatic Movement Education is a self- sensing movement process by which we can learn to update the functioning of our neurophysiology and our soma can learn to let go of old patterns of functioning (tension, stiffness, pain) and experince itself more and more in the present moment, at ease, relaxed and pain free.
