Developmental Movement with Diane Elliot

October 20-22, 2020 (4-6:30pm) (3 ONLINE evening classes)

(Included in the Somatic Education Module at Moving On Center – School of Participatory Arts and Somatic Research)

As a species, human beings are hardwired for certain capacities expressed through a series of early movement patterns that weave together all the body’s systems: cellular, nervous, muscular, skeletal, fluid, organ, and endocrine. From the moment of conception, our in utero experience, birthing, infancy, and throughout our lives, the latent capacities of our nervous systems are expressed in movement through the Basic Neurocellular Patterns (BNP’s), which bring us into relationship with our inner and outer environments.

In this class series, students will experience the Body-Mind Centering® approach to Developmental Movement, exploring both pre- and post-birth patterns, and experiencing how they influence the ways we live and move in our adult bodies. Re-learning and practicing the BNP’s with curiosity, gentleness, and compassion is a kind of developmental “yoga” that helps us heal gaps in our sensory, perceptual, and processing abilities, so that we may move with more pleasure, ease, and confidence in the world. The underlying principles of Developmental Movement also offer teachers and facilitators a rich treasury of images and exercises to deepen your work with individuals and groups.

$175 for the entire workshop (3 mornings). No one-day drop-ins.

The study of Body-Mind Centering® is a creative process in which embodiment of the material is explored in the context of self-discovery and openness. Each person is both the student and the subject matter and the underlying goal is to discover the ease that underlies transformation.
