Kay Barr has completed the Level 1 and 2 Hanna Somatics Exercise Coach (HSEC) training. In July 2019 she graduated as one of the first group of Australians to be certified as Clinical Somatic Educators in Melbourne through Essential Somatics (www.essentialsomatics.com) in the USA under the instruction of the talented team of teachers and Martha Peterson CHSE. Kay has been approved by ISMETA (International Somatic Movement Education & Therapy Association). ISMETA ensures the field of Somatic Movement Education and Therapy maintains high standards of education and practice worldwide.
Kay is also a long-time teacher of Tai Chi and Qigong and regards Tai Chi Chuan and Somatics as the perfect co-practices for restoring harmony, balance and postural alignment to her students and clients.
Becoming mindfully connected to your whole being from the inside out without the negative effects of pain is a freedom that Kay hopes that everyone can experience through Hanna Somatic Education.
Kay launched “iMove Without Pain” Clinical Hanna Somatic studio in Cairns North Queensland, Australia in 2017.
