SOMATIC MOVEMENT IS...

Somatic Movement enhances human function and body-mind integration through mindful and restorative movement. Our profession encompasses distinct disciplines each with their own educational or therapeutic emphasis, principles, methods and techniques.

Our practices incorporate: postural and movement evaluation; experiential anatomy; guided movement patterning to increase efficiency; all while developing perceptual, kinesthetic and proprioceptive sensitivity. Somatic Movement Education and Therapy supports homeostasis, co-regulation and neuro-plasticity in our students and clients.
