What does somatic mean?

Somatic stems from the Greek Word Soma which means living body in wholeness.  In the 1970’s Thomas Hanna formally developed the field of somatics.  Working somatically means working subjectively, where one’s body-mind connectivity and one’s ‘lived’ experience is recognized and integrated into the body-based practice.
