6 class series
September 21 – November 9

Mondays 3pm- 4.30pm CEST
All classes will be recorded and available for people registered.

In this workshop will explore the development of our senses, perceptions, and movement.

The development of our senses and perceptions lays our foundation for how we engage with the world.  The development of our movement patterns parallels the evolutionary development of movement through the animal kingdom. The Basic Neurocellular Patterns are the words of our movement. They are the building blocks for the phrases and sentences of our activities. They also establish a base for our perceptual relationships and for our learning and communication.

The series will include:

– Exploration of the six senses (movement, touch, taste, smell, hearing and vision).

– Bonding, defending and learning as psychophysical processes based on your perceptions.

-Exploration of the prevertebrate patterns: Vibration, Cellular, Sponging, Pulsation, Mouthing, and Prespinal.

-Exploration of the vertebrate patterns: spinal, homologous, homolateral, and contralateral.

-Distinguishing and integrating the actions of yield, push, reach and pull.

In our classes 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. We will explore different body systems, bones, organs, fluids, endocrine, fascia, connective tissue, and nervous system. We will explore how these systems support different ways of being, moving, perceiving, breathing, behaving expressing and thinking.

These classes are 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.
