Dr. Hanna Poikonen
Hanna is originally from Finland, but movement practice and science have taken her to live in Australia, Singapore and Switzerland. For eight years, she is based in Barcelona. She has studied movement and dance in cities such as New York (Gibney Dance, Movement Research), Barcelona (La Caldera, Institut del Teatre), Montreal (Circuit-Est Centre Chorégraphique) and Berlin (Marameo). Explorations in kung fu, tai chi, butoh and somatic methods have taught her a holistic approach to the body and mind.
Hanna worked for five years in brain research and education focusing on intelligence, pain and creativity at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH Zurich, Switzerland). After that, she pursued her PhD in neuroscience of movement, dance and music (Faculty of Medicine, University of Helsinki, Finland), receiving her degree in May 2018. Based on her degree work, she developed the WiseMotion method of movement, meditation and neuroscience.
Hanna has taught WiseMotion to people from the ages of 13 to 82 in North America, Europe and Asia. WiseMotion has been featured at Harvard Medical School (Boston), Gibney Dance (New York City), Swissotel Berlin, Institut del Teatre (Barcelona), Kuopio Dance Festival (Finland) and Alive Wellness (Hong Kong) among others.
