Our embodied embryology class series will explore the morphological adventure we all undertook to become who we are. The first 8 weeks after our conception is when our body forms its basic structure. In this period we form from an egg and sperm, transforming into a cluster of cells and a series of fluid spaces and become a highly differentiated human being. These fluid spaces and processes underlie our current structure and inform our current state of being.

Somatic practice is an integrated and embodied approach to movement, bodies and consciousness which can be practiced by anybody irregardless of age, ability, disability, or gender. Somatic practice invites a slowing down to feel. We learn to sense and initiate movement from anywhere inside of ourselves. Through practice we learn that somatics is not only about creating flexible mobile bodies, but flexible minds. This creates a very generative place for movement exploration and dance making.

This class 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 development, cellular consciousness, movement, and mindfulness.
