Oslo Body-Mind Centering® training 2024 – 2025

with Olive Bieringa & Otto Ramstad

location: PRAXIS Oslo

165 hours 

This comprehensive 165 hour training in Body-Mind Centering® is offered for the first time in Norway.

Are you are inspired by the process of embodiment?
Do you want to develop ways to move in consciousness and presence?
Are you interested in embodied anatomy and developmental movement?
Do you want to facilitate movement and embodiment in a range of settings?
Are you an artist, therapist, educator or researcher who wants to deepen your somatic approach in your work?

Body-Mind Centering® is an experiential approach to embodiment, movement and consciousness. Developed by Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen over the last several decades, BMC works with the conscious embodiment of anatomical, physiological, psychophysical, embryological and developmental principles. It uses anatomical information, guided movement, intentional touch, voice, expressive arts, and a developing awareness of the play of conscious attention, or mind.

This training is for movers, dancers, performers, yoga practitioners, bodyworkers, occupational and physical therapists, somatic psychotherapists, infant/child educators, and those from other body-mind disciplines interested in cellular consciousness, movement, and mindfulness. No prior experience with Body-Mind Centering® is necessary.

Courses can be taken individually or you can join the whole 165 hour training over two years.
