Somatic Movement Education
Copyright 2013. All rights reserved.
Thank you for visiting. Here you will find informational articles, videos and experiential classes based on somatics exploring the relationship of body and mind; consciousness and form. I work in four primary areas.
Qigong is a practice of life-energy cultivation. Though having learned many forms and styles of qigong, I focus my practice and teaching on principles of breathing, life-pulse (opening and closing), spiraling and clearing energy pathways.
Embodied Kinesiology or Functional Anatomy is a study I offer in an on-line format. You will gain an understanding of biomechanics and the relationships of our musculoskeletal system to itself, gravity and resistance in various pedestrian activities and developmental patterns. Understanding human movement on an experiential level will help you be a more effective massage therapist, bodyworker, personal trainer or somatic movement practitioner. This course is approved for students in the Practitioner Program of Body-Mind Centering®.
Somatic Movement Education is the experiential study of the body systems, movement development and perceptual development of our body-mind. Classes and Individual Sessions are ongoing in various locations in the Chapel Hill, Durham, Raleigh areas of North Carolina.
