Chief Somatic Strategist
Secret Sauce: Grounding into and enlivening an embodied exploration of emotion and experience, Hannah contributes her knowledge of somatic processes, psychology, and movement to the TAPIN Crew.
As a former dancer and lifelong mover, Hannah’s greatest intention is to teach clients how to teach themselves about their own somatic experience – to learn how to pick up and decipher all the information our nervous systems send us. This expands our awareness and concept of self, creating a bodymind intelligence that brings grace, empowerment, and a full range of emotional expression.
After teaching movement and practicing bodywork in New York for over 3 years, Hannah relocated to the Bay Area to pursue her Masters in Counseling Psychology with a focus in Somatic Psychotherapy. In addition to her alignment training she was trained in Alchemy in Movement. A.I.M, a somatic based body-mind healing technique, which became integral to her teaching philosophy.
She is intrigued by the connection between embodied experience, physical imbalance, emotion, relating, and the vagal and autonomic nervous systems. Drawing inspiration from her yoga practice, dance training, kinesthetic anatomy training, Ayurvedic and Chinese medical systems, somatic and Gestalt psychology Hannah uses a hands-on approach to facilitate personal exploration, ultimately creating balance, space, and fluidity within the physical and emotional bodymind.
