Somatic Basics Training

- Somatic Basics Training

Get in touch with yourself in a deep and subtle way - Enabling unfolding and development

We believe that people strive to develop and grow. The aim of our Somatic Basics Training is to provide the conditions that support this development through an integrative connection to the body, to make it tangible and to apply it to areas of life such as work, partnership, expression, creativity, and health. This somatic training uses body-oriented learning approaches that become useful for and within the student and take on meaning. The conscious exploration of movement development enables the recognition of personal patterns, the integration of body, psyche, thinking, and acting as well as the engagement of untapped potential.

What is 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.
