Body-Mind Centering® is a study of the vital materiality of our bodies.
In this workshop we will cultivate our movement through the deep and subtle somatic approach of Body-Mind Centering®. Utilizing movement, touch, voice and mind we will explore anatomical, physiological, psychophysical and developmental awareness of our self and others. Through movement and touch we will explore different body systems, bones, fascia, connective tissue, organs, fluids, endocrine and nervous system. We will explore how these systems support different ways of moving, performing, breathing, singing, being, behaving and thinking. We will learn about embryological and developmental movement patterns, as way to move from simplicity into complexity, through water, gravity and space.
We will cover the essentials of the following systems: senses and perceptions, skeletal system, organ system, basic neurocellular patterns
This workshop is for anyone who is interested in their body, mind and movement; dancers, yoga practitioners, bodyworkers, athletes, performers, martial artists, philosophers, educators, parents of young children and artists of all kinds
