Somatic Beginnings

The body - experienced as the medium of life - is the first field of learning and the first means of learning for all of us, the basis of all learning. The American Feldenkrais teacher and founder of his own method, Thomas Hanna, coined the concept of "Somatics" in the late 1960s and early 1970s. In his writings, he defined somatics as the "field in which the soma is explored, i.e. the body perceived from within through self-awareness."

Our first - somatic - learning allows us the most amazing and profound learning processes: the first language acquisition, completely without textbooks and 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.

Explore and experience what somatics mean to you in our 2-3h workshops.
