Developmental Movement Track: Human Motor Development I
Mar
8
to Mar 10

Developmental Movement Track: Human Motor Development I

This course introduces the oceanic movement patterns, intrauterine movement, and primitive reflexes. We examine how our embryonic and fetal experiences have contributed to our current sense of self and apply developmental principles to the process of somatic movement education. Introduction to cellular respiration and cellular touch is utilized as the foundation for all subsequent hands-on work in the program.

Friday 5 – 9 pm, Saturday and Sunday 9 – 6 pm

Body Systems Track: The Organ System
Apr
12
to Apr 14

Body Systems Track: The Organ System

The organs are the contents within the musculo-skeletal container, supporting postural tone and feelings, and giving volume to movement. Participants study and embody the internal structures that carry out the functions of internal regulation, breathing, nourishment and elimination. Organs are a critical habitat of our emotions and aspirations and hold cellular memories of our personal histories. Students learn to initiate movement from the organs and support their expression in others.

Body Systems Track: Connective Tissue and Ligaments
Oct
23
to Oct 25

Body Systems Track: Connective Tissue and Ligaments

Beginning from the experiential anatomy of the entire connective tissue matrix, the course offers a special focus on the ligaments. Working from the fascial web, we focus on specific ligaments to repattern movement around the joints and facilitate the initiation of movement from the ligaments. The course introduces specific assessment tools to identify avenues for repatterning a client’s movement from a connective tissue perspective.
