Body-Mind Centering teaches an experiential approach to understanding the body, movement, consciousness, and their relationship to one another. Drawing on principles from applied physiology and psychological development, Body-Mind Centering makes use of touch, movement, mind, and voice to assist with physical and mental re-patterning. The process is exploratory and personal, allowing students to gain an embodied understanding of the functioning of their own physiology, spirituality, and psychology.
What to expect
Body-Mind Centering provides a safe space to explore the mind and spirit through the avenue of the body. It utilizes specific principles which work to create a re-patterning in the body and mind. During class, students can expect elements of touch and movement, as well as use of the mind and voice.
