Our organs impact our living experiences as we breathe, digest, and process. They are the primary habitats of our emotions, and their tone affects the tone of the tissues and skeletal muscles around them. Through a Body-Mind Centering® approach you will learn ways to work with your different organs for support and grounding and experience the volume and ease they can bring to your movement and yoga practice.
All levels of experience welcome.
Body-Mind Centering® (BMCSM)is an integrated and embodied approach to movement, the body and consciousness. It is an experiential study based on anatomical, physiological, psychophysical and developmental principles developed by Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen. BMCSM utilizes movement, touch, voice, imagery, anatomical illustrations and discussion to explore each body system in ways that can be applied to personal development and professional enhancement.
