Hañsa Therapy Teacher Training

Hañsa Therapy is a complementary, holistic approach to health that optimises functional living. Hañsa uses yogic and Taoist concepts to deconstruct movement, breathing rhythms and behaviour to provide an approach that supports the practitioner, student and client to greater wellness.

In the Hañsa Therapeutic approach, the body is regarded from multiple layers and therapeutic physical treatment has to be considered from its effect on a mental, habitual, and situational perspective.

In Hañsa Therapy, the diagnosis and assessment is a shared collaborative experience between the therapist and the client, and “treatment” becomes a dynamic and relational approach.  The Assessment procedures has four categories, clinical, movement, manual and breathing.  Each assessment is to establish what particular patterns are in operation and whether these rhythms are interrupting normal functional processes.     

This approach allows for the client a more profound realisation of the interplay between the experiential phenomena and our subjective tendencies, this investigation leads us to the reason why we value specific ways of moving or behaviour over others.  The assessment model leads to greater observation insights and contrast relationships that inform us of alternative avenues of movement and behaviour.  

Hañsa Therapy incorporates in its therapeutic model Hañsa Functional Touch practices.  A unique bodywork system that elicits a higher degree of body organisation which can develop new and improved movement strategies to support overall function.

Hañsa Therapy main philosophy is based on that any therapeutic value within the practice is built overtime.  It is a system that differentiates and analyses personal styles and characteristics, with the view that as our understanding of ourselves grow so do our choices become different. The hope is the practice will enable any practitioner of Hañsa to adapt, mature and evolve.  This is a prerequisite to improving functionality and living life well.   

Hañsa International mission in to constantly maintain high standards in its certification procedures and continually upgrade its teaching methodology to support Hañsa Therapist and Hañsa Flow teachers professional and personal development.

Hañsa Therapy Professional Training - Level 1 


This training is equivalent to standard Yoga Alliance 200-hour Yoga Training. It provides the opportunity for students to better understand the biomechanics of functional, dynamic movement in the context of: Thoracic rhythm, the pelvic puzzle, and the shoulder complex. These areas of the body provide the platform to explore movement patterning, rehabilitation and Hañsa flow practice with a therapeutic focus.

Learning and practice from each therapy module are then integrated during an assessment that creates an environment of critical, integrated inquiry within the three physiological and energetic systems explored in the 200-hour Hañsa Therapy Training. The assessment is an appraisal of each student’s understanding of therapy principles and ability to apply them.
