Einführungsworkshop: somatische Pädagogik

- Einführungsworkshop: somatische Pädagogik


Dieser Einführungsworkshop widmet sich der menschlichen Evolution vor der Geburt und der Entfaltung des Lebens.

Wir werden in die Embryologie praktisch eintauchen, insbesondere in die Entwicklung der Organe, des Nervensystems und des muskuloskeletären Systems. 

Neueste wissenschaftliche Studien belegen die Wichtigkeit der Einbeziehung der Embryonalentwicklung auf den menschlichen Entfaltungsprozess. Wir zeigen einen innovativen Ansatz, wie Kinder, Schwangere und Fürsorgende, Begleitung und Unterstützung bekommen und geben können.

Dieser Workshop gibt Einblicke in die Fortbildung Somatische Begleitung & Arbeit mit Kindern.

Ausführliche Seminarinformationen

This innovative training combines several  somatic methods (IBMT; BMC®, INPP, Feldenkrais, Cranio-Sacral Osteopathy, Experiential Anatomy, Authentic Movement) with the latest theory and research on child development. A somatic approach can provide effective and simple support for babies, children and adolescents who are facing challenges in learning, development or emotional regulation, whether big or small. This programme will support you to integrate somatic approaches into your practice, providing  a combination of body awareness and embodiment training with practical somatic exercises and approaches appropriate to specific client groups.
