The Somatic Movement Educator (SME) training provides a certification in somatic movement education. Our graduates meet all requirements to become Registered Somatic Movement Educators (RSME) with the International Somatic Movement Education and Therapy Association.

The 500-hour program trains you to work with movement facilitation, touch, and sound to support transformation. The SME Program has immediate applications in movement- based disciplines—such as dance, yoga, sports, and martial arts—and in therapeutic modalities such as psychotherapy, physical therapy, occupational therapy, bodywork, and massage. Each of the 12 42 hour courses focuses on an aspect of developmental movement or a body system.

You are welcome to join our courses and trainings in Mexico, Brazil (São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Recife), or the US. For details, costs, and schedules, please visit the following webpages:

Mark and the SME program create an environment for embodied learning, to re-pattern the way one thinks, perceives and processes information. It is a simple, powerful and radical idea, the idea of the experiential approach to knowledge sharing, an approach that consciously honors all the human capacities for learning and creativity and does not attempt to colonize or divide ideas into intellectual or physiological pursuits. I feel lucky to have an opportunity to learn and live this information. I hope that the work continues to have wider recognition, be applied to more diverse fields.
