- Probetag: Somatisches Basisjahr

probieren, kennenlernen & fragen

Bringe Dich auf tiefe und feine Weise in Kontakt mit Dir selbst

An diesem Probetag kannst du das Somatische Basisjahr  (Teil A) und die Somatiker*innen-Ausbildung kennenlernen und ausprobieren.

Unser Somatisches Basisjahr hat zum Ziel, die Bedingungen für diese ganzheitliche Entfaltung zu fördern, erlebbar zu machen und auf Lebensbereiche wie Beruf, Partnerschaft, Ausdruck, Kreativität und Gesundheit anzuwenden. Das somatische Basisjahr nutzt hierfür körperorientierte Lernansätze und befähigt, sie in sich wirksam werden zu lassen. Das bewusste Durchlaufen der menschlichen, biologischen Entwicklung ermöglicht das Erkennen von Potential und Zurückgehaltenem sowie die Integration von Leib, Seele, Denken und Handeln.

Die methodenübergreifende, modulare Somatiker*innen Ausbildung umfasst zur Vollzertifizierung insgesamt 4 Teile (A,B,C & D), die je nach Interessenlage und Ausrichtungswünschen flexibel gestaltbar sind. 


  • 45 Minuten somatische Praxis
  • 45 Minuten für Fragen und Antworten

Du kannst am Event online oder vor Ort teilnehmen. Die Teilnehmeranzahl ist vor Ort begrenzt und findet unter der Einhaltung der 2G+ Regel statt. 

Bitte melde dich verbindlich über die Webseite an.

Didactic Principles of the Somatics Basics Training

In the interplay of different methods such as Continuum, Feldenkrais Method, Middendorf's Breath Experience, Body-Mind Centering®, experiential anatomy, Authentic Movement and Somatic Yoga, experiences and cognitive processes arise that are of great value for one's own development.

On the basis of each content-related module focus, we research and experience the corresponding body systems, effective principles, movement patterns, biological and emotional stages of development as well as their personal and social relevance. We make use of the fact that our physical development is in direct connection and interaction with our development of consciousness. Experience and reflection give us access to this. We create a space of emotional security and integrate group dynamic processes as support in the individual learning process.

Structure of the Somatics Basics Training

The Somatic Basics Training is part of our Somatic Practitioner education program. It forms Part A comprising 30 days (240 teaching units) over 6 five-day modules spread over one year. Part A is primarily for personal growth. Building on this, parts B, C, and D can be chosen. They enable the student to teach and work with individuals and/or groups.
