The Somatic Movement Educator program explores the richness of the relationship between body, mind, movement and touch in the context of our dynamic Embodied Anatomy and Embodied Developmental Movement approach to Somatic Movement Education.

School for Body-Mind Centering® programs offer an experiential approach to movement, the body, and consciousness. People who study the Body-Mind Centering® approach come from a variety of backgrounds but they all share a common interest in the body-mind relationship and want to learn an in-depth, experiential and embodied approach. Whether you are involved with a movement practice (yoga, dance, athletics, martial arts, etc.), work in a therapeutic setting (occupational therapy, physical therapy, psychotherapy, child development, etc.), or are engaged in other expressive arts (visual arts, music, etc.), our programs offer an opportunity for professional development and/or personal growth.

Most courses in this program may be taken individually or in combination for personal growth or professional enrichment without commitment to the entire program.  Please click below for more info on each module.
