Somatic Pedagogy Training in EN

Cross-method teaching of somatics in a group context

A pedagogy of relatedness

After the first year of the Somatic Basics Training (Part 1), the Somatic Pedagogy Training (Part 2) focuses on practical deepening and the ability to facilitate and guide individuals and groups in somatic work. The Somatic Pedagogy Training establishes the second and final prerequisite for professional certification and recognition by ISMETA, the International Somatic Movement and Therapy Association. 

The Somatic Pedagogy Training also provides an insight into the history and philosophy of somatics, its theories, principles, delimitations and its critical reflection within our current cultural context (Critical Somatics).

Through the analysis of human movement development and through the specific and synergistic attributes of the somatic methods taught, the material can be absorbed and integrated in an embodied and cognitive way, thus supporting sense-making, choice-making and acting in the world.

On the one hand, understanding the principles of the individual methods gives students the opportunity to survey a large part of the somatic professional field. On the other hand, the student gains the ability to use these principles as a basis for their own authorship and application.

The Somatic Pedagogy Training is certified by the international professional somatic association ISMETA. This cycle (start May 27th, 2024) will be in English.

Ausführliche Seminarinformationen

The Somatic Pedagogy Training also provides an insight into the history and philosophy of somatics, its theories, principles, delimitations and its critical reflection within our current cultural context (Critical Somatics).

Through the analysis of human movement development and through the specific and synergistic attributes of the somatic methods taught, the material can be absorbed and integrated in an embodied and cognitive way, thus supporting sense-making, choice-making and acting in the world.

On the one hand, understanding the principles of the individual methods gives students the opportunity to survey a large part of the somatic professional field. On the other hand, the student gains the ability to use these principles as a basis for their own authorship and application.

Which didactic principles were experienced?

In the interplay of different methods such as Continuum, Feldenkrais Method, Middendorf's Breath Experience, Body-Mind Centering®, experiential anatomy, Authentic Movement, Somatic Yoga and Somatic Voice, experiences and cognitive processes arise that are of great value for one's own development. In the synergy of movement development and the pedagogy of different somatic approaches, participants are enabled to apply and teach general somatic principles independently and autonomously.

How is the Somatic Pedagogy training structured?

The Somatic Pedagoy Training is part of our Somatic Movement Pedagogy Training.
It forms part 2, comprises 50 days (300 hrs.) and is spread over 1.5 years in 10 five-day modules.

The entry requirement for the Somatic Pedagogy Training is completion of the Somatic Basic Year. Part 1 is dedicated to the somatic experience and individual process. Part 2 is primarily devoted to learning how to teach somatics.

Completion of Part 1 & Part 2 (500 hrs.) leads to certification in Somatic Movement Education and qualifies to teach groups based on general principles of Somatics.

Building on this, specialization in an individual area of interest is recommended. There is a wide range of specializations in our continuing education program. With a specialization you are able to work as a somatic movement educator in specific professional fields with expertise and competent knowledge and especially to offer individual work.

  • Continuum
