Somatic Systems

Explore moving with the body systems– fluid, organ, endocrine, muscle, ligament, fascia, skeletal, nervous – from a Body-Mind Centering® approach. These classes are open to anyone interested in movement, creative expression, and presence.

“All systems are active at all times, serving either a supporting or expressing function. It is this complex overlapping and weaving together of the systems that gives our movement its subtlety and personal distinctions.”

-Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen, “The Dancer’s Warm-up,” Sensing, Feeling and Action

Our cells collaborate to create tissues and systems, which co-create the larger ecosystem of our body-mind. The expression and mind of each system brings a different range of qualities to presence. Most of us express more easily through certain systems, while others might be in shadow. Each system uniquely supports presence, circulation, expression and integration. A systems approach can help modulate responsiveness, clarity, flow, attention, strength and connectivity, while generating new movement possibilities.

This 7-week series introduces these body systems through guided movement, improvisation, writing and drawing.

No previous experience necessary. Movement is adaptable to your unique situation – move according to your available space, energy levels and capacities in the moment.
