Get in touch with yourself through somatics

The body is for us the first step of learning and the first learning tool, the basis of all learning. The American Feldenkrais teacher and founder of his own method, Thomas Hanna, coined the “Somatics” concept, which encompasses a variety of methods, in the late 1960s and early 1970s. In his writings he defined somatics as the “field in which the soma is studied, i.e. the body perceived from within, through self-perception.”

Our first - somatic - learning enables us the most amazing and profound learning processes: the first language acquisition, without any textbook or school, and the discovery of the possibilities of our own body. Both happen in a playful exchange with the environment, through perceiving, reacting, trying out, correcting and repeating.

Get to know somatics and experience somatic methods very practically in our 2-3 hour workshops.
