A Somatic Approach to Horsemanship™ (ASATH) is the integration of Hanna Somatics® & Equine Hanna Somatics® with a connection-based horsemanship method and classical training principles. 
Hanna Somatics teaches us to resolve Sensory Motor Amnesia (SMA) - a condition of chronically contracted muscles that cause many physical and behavioral problems that are preventing horses and riders from performing pain-free and achieving the ultimate inter-species connection.
Alissa's connection-based horsemanship method recognizes the differences and similarities between horses and humans, and uses our inherent abilities to gracefully exchange information non-verbally, creating mutually rewarding Interspecies Dialogues.
