Online – Zoom

The history of the body is the history of human beings, for there is no cultural practice that is not first applied to the body.

Somatic Classes designed for your bedroom, living room or kitchen:
The first series of Zoom classes are underway and whilst missing the connection and porosity of our moving bodies together in the studio it has created an opportunity for people to be in a somatic community. Here is the next series to share with you: bringing awareness into our bodies, allowing self-touch and feeling the pleasure of moving feel crucial during these difficult times. From the comfort and chaos of your home you can participate in these 90min classes where I will focus on what feels critical for remaining resilient as we all recover from the lockdown.
The 5-week series develop somatic awareness and cellular consciousness. These are powerful resources for any body any time. Body-Mind Centering® is the ground of my somatic practice and teaching. As a study of the experienced feeling body it offers resistance to the idea of the objectified mechanical body.
Structure of Classes
10.45am meet online to catch-up; 11am outline focus of class and begin somatisation – 1 hour; followed by 15mins improvised moving/dancing/singing/playing for integration and 15mins to share and close.
