Engaging Organs, Glands and Bones in Movement


This 3-hour workshop is for movement teachers who want to bring more somatic attention and embodied anatomy into their teaching. We will focus on engaging specific organs and glands, and explore how they support alignment, strength and expression through the skeleton.The organs are the landscape of our innermost vitality. When fully inhabited, the organs can bring a deep, easy support to movement and presence, while expanding one’s range of expression. The endocrine glands underlie our internal responsiveness and hormonal fluidity, and can take us beyond individual movement experience to archetypal forms.

When brought into alignment with the skeletal system pathways, the organs and glands can support, express, extend, exalt, and ground our movement practices.Workshop time will include instruction in Body-Mind Centering® embodied anatomy and physiology, guided movement explorations, hands-on exchange, and opportunities for participants to generate applications to their own teaching practice. This will include practice teaching in small groups, in order to share ideas and foster creative practice in a supportive environment.
Following the workshop there will be time for tea and conversation in the beautiful Kyo Studio garden – a chance to get to know your fellow local movement explorers!Body-Mind Centering® is a highly experiential approach to inhabiting the lively and responsive territory of our body-minds.
