A warm welcome to Somatics Workshop!

Our expe­rience of our own bodies plays an impor­tant role in how we feel about our­sel­ves, and this influences how we inte­ract with our envi­ron­ment, social and physical. 

Soma­tics refers to a gene­ral approach to wor­king with the body whe­re it is expe­rienced from wit­hin rat­her than objec­ti­fied from the out­si­de. The implica­tion is that when the body is expe­rienced from wit­hin, then the body and mind are not sepa­ra­ted but expe­rienced as a who­le. The the­mes of this works­hop are easy move­ment, ver­sa­ti­le move­ment and — body image.

The­re will be clas­ses in impro­vi­sa­tion, move­ment explo­ra­tion, and other soma­tic move­ment prac­tices. We aim to crea­te a relaxed atmosp­he­re in which eve­ry­one can learn at their own pace. We take our work serious­ly and we like to have fun. We hope you will too! 

This cour­se is open for eve­ry­one and could be a great way to begin your autumn.
