Somatic Movement Education
 
Change the Way You Move, Change the Way You Live
An opportunity to re-awaken inherent agility and to move with ease.  This sensory-motor learning process of non-strenuous movement patterns & explorations gives the brain the necessary feedback to release muscles from chronic habitual holding patterns (neuromuscular re-patterning).
Somatic Movement Education expands our possibilities for moving and thus living.

These gentle movement inquiries liberate us from layers of involuntary, habitual holding patterns.
Chronic tension patterns change as the body regains its innate ability to self-correct to ease and efficiency (neuromuscular re-patterning).

These movement awareness practices invite quiet mind, a deep unwinding and endless discovery.
Discover the amazing capacity of your nervous system for somatic releasing, resourcing and re-education. 

This work draws from Somatic Unwinding,, Hanna Somatics, BioSomatics, the teachings of Moshe Feldenkrais, Alexander Technique, Embodied Anatomy, Skinner Releasing, Open Source Forms, the 8 neuro-develomental movement patterns of the BrainDance and my thirty years as a somatic movement educator, dancer and yoga & meditation teacher.

BrainDance
These 8 neuro-developmental movement patterns focus on the fundamental patterns which originally wired our brain/central nervous system.   These patterns are the foundation for all movement and support optimal movement & cognitive function in any activity you do.
Bring agility, balance, strength and ease to all of the movement activities in your life. 
BrainDance is an excellent cognitive and physical warm up.
The re-patterning will improve any physical activity you enjoy.


Soma Yoga:  A modern yoga with ancient roots.
Bring the wisdom of somatic movement education into your hatha yoga & meditation practice.
These practices support agility, equanimity, quiet mind and endless discovery.
Awareness of habitual moving, thinking and attention patterns is possible;
and with awareness sits liberation.  I founded Soma Yoga in 1998.

"Consciousness is a causative force in the human body; It reshapes the body."  
 Paul McLean, Nobel Prize Speech


SomaDance
A delicious dive into structured and improvisational somatic movement explorations including the 8 neuro-developmental BrainDance patterns.  This work draws from somatic movement education, Skinner Releasing Technique, Open Source Forms, Alexander Technique, BrainDance and my lifetime of dance.
