Consciously integrated physicality & sensitivity supports and expands:
Empathy and relationship skills
Ability to adapt and orientate
Vitality and endurance

Ability to reflect, process and contextualize
The 2 parts in detail:
Part 1: Somatic Base Year
The Somatic Base Year focuses on individual process and experiential development. 1 year, 6 modules, 5 days per module.
Perceptual learning in the somatic methods allows for conscious engagement with one's own body and the resulting relatedness with others.
This part is dedicated to the immediate experience, freed from the pressure of already having to apply and forms an important basis for one's own integration of the contents.
The Somatic Basic Year can also be booked individually. Detailed information is available here.
Part 2: Somatic Pedagogy Training
The Somatic Pedagogy Training takes place - like Part 1- in a fixed group. It consists of 10 modules (each Mon-Fri) spread over a period of 1.5 years. In the modules the somatic methods from part 1 are deepened.
In going through the development process again, it is analyzed through the perspective of different somatic methods and made penetrable, communicable and capable of action by means of the ongoing process of one's own embodiment.
Part 2 ends with a final exam that includes practical and theoretical components.
Completion of Part 1 certifies for teaching application.
Part 1 is a prerequisite for participation in Part 2.
Partial certification as a Somatics Specialist after Part 1 & Part 2 (500 hrs).
We recommend an additional Somatic Specialization:
The Somatic Specialization is about the individual specialization of the Somatiker*in. There are 4 different choices for this:
Participants can choose a 200-hour self-contained specialization from the Somatic Academy Berlin (SAB) program.
Participants can compile an individual program from individual offers of the SAB until 200UE are reached.
Participants can choose a specialization that is not directly run by the SAB but is in collaboration with it.
Prerequisites for participation in part 1: none
Prerequisites for participation in Part 2: Part 1 or comparable previous experience
