Olive will offer Body-Mind Centering® private sessions in Oslo, Wellington and Auckland, New Zealand, Minneapolis over the coming year. 

Body-Mind Centering® is a study of the vital materiality of the body. Developed by Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen, BMC® is an experiential study based on the embodiment and application of anatomical, physiological, psychophysical and developmental principles, utilizing movement, touch, voice and mind. Its uniqueness lies in the specificity with which each of the body systems can be personally embodied and integrated, the fundamental groundwork of developmental repatterning, and the utilization of a body-based language to describe movement and body-mind relationships. The BMC® approach has an unlimited number of applications for dance, bodywork, art, music, athletics, child development, and other therapeutic applications.
