BMC

Through anatomical information and images, through movement, touch and sensing we become familiar with the different structures of the body, cultivating a deep and subtle somatic awareness. With this awareness, we tune into the qualities of the different body systems: bones, organs, nerves, glands, fluids, muscles, senses and voice.
Using early developmental movement patterns, we explore the stages of human development, from single-celled organisms to walking beings, how they intertwine and shape and support our movement today.
Through subtle awareness of the body’s structures, through touch of the tissues and comprehension of anatomical principles, we cultivate alertness and presence in the body and find movement that feels delicious!
One-on-One sessions are opportunities to address individual questions and personal themes. Touch can reach different tissue layers, enhance the range and quality of movement and improve the wellbeing. Appointments by individual arrangement.

Ground, Source and Wings
Body-Mind Centering into Movement

Our development starts in fluid environment: pulsation, flow, folding, unfolding, resistance and yielding. Later the earth and gravity support our body and movement development. Curiosity, openness and our senses allow us to reach into space and support our growing.

We will explore our relationship to earth and space in and around us. Early developmental movement patterns support us in stability, lightness and freedom of movement and being. The availability of our tissues for touch and movement and aspects of embryology, bones, organs, fluids, nervous system will support our dance.

Through specific anatomical information, touch, dance, alone and in the group we become familiar with the different structures of the body, cultivating a deep and subtle somatic awareness and the pleasure of movement.
Contact Improvisation and Authentic Movement will be used as Integration.

Teaching languages are german and english with a possibility for italian translation.
Ca. 27h workshop time, there is enough time to relax and enjoy the beautiful surrounding

Schedule:
Monday Arrival/Departure
Tue-Sun each day 5h Workshop
One day afternoon free, there is the possibility to do an excursion and explore the close environment or enjoy a trip to the seaside

BMC Training
SAB Berlin

Body–Mind Centering® Training

75h / 6 WE // January 2020 – June 2020 // Somatische Akademie Berlin

In this five-weekend training program, we will explore and gain deeper insight into the principles and approaches of Body-Mind Centering®. Through anatomy, movement and touch as well as partner and group exercises we will become familiar with the different structures of the body, cultivating a deep and subtle somatic awareness.

Furthermore, we will: Attend to the different body systems such as bones, fascia, connective tissue, organs, fluids or the nervous system and explore their dynamics and qualities. Learn how developmental movement patterns influence the way we move and make contact with our environment. Re-experience our embryological origins. Explore the stages of human development, from single-celled organisms to walking beings, how they intertwine and shape our movement and actions today.

My wish for this training is to spark your joy of movement and interest in exploring your body. You will be provided with profound knowledge, engage in in-depth experience and become aware of the interconnectedness of inner and outer processes: awareness on a subtle, cellular level and its expression through movement. This will create space to expand your movement potential and get to know the ways in which you express and differentiate, in other words: to inhabit your body in a new way.

Contact Improvisation and Authentic Movement will serve as integration practices. Each weekend will cover a specific theme; the training modules build on each other.

The training is geared toward everyone wishing to develop a deeper understanding of BMC® and to engage with the world of body, movement and dance. Prerequisites are the desire and willingness to experiment with free movement and touch as well as a responsible approach to working with one’s own body.

WE 1: 17. – 19. January 2020 // Structural Integrity
Bones provide a supporting structure and clear inner alignment. Together with fascia, ligaments and muscles they constitute the three-dimensional tension network whose elastic, spiraling forces promote structural integrity.

WE 2: 14. – 16. February 2020 // Fullness, Three-dimensionality and Breath
With their fullness, volume and three-dimensionality organs give support, they are vivid and nurturing. Our many diaphragms create space and connectivity, the breath animates and nourishes us in turn.

WE 3: 20. – 22. March 2020 // Developmental Movement Patterns
We will explore movement stages from single-celled organisms to walking beings. Crawling, rolling, pushing, yielding, pulling, reaching, releasing and expanding from the center outwards – all of these actions originate in early movement development. They influence how we experience ourselves in and communicate with our environment.

WE 4: 24. – 26. April 2020 // Flow and Regulation
Fluids are a vast communication and transporting network in the body. Fluids connect, nourish and move us in various ways. They support presence, lightness, freedom, dynamics and stillness of our movement. They have rhythm and pulse.

WE 5: 15. – 17. May 2020 // Perception and Balance

Experience first occurs on the cellular level. The nervous system registers and regulates, and provides new impulses. It organizes the body’s functions and balances movement, awareness, rest and action.  Changes of outer and inner environment are perceived, related to each other and to previous experiences.

WE 6: 12. – 14. June 2020 // Embryology, Integration

In a fluid environment, the body’s structures and tissues form within the first few weeks of our lives. Through folding and unfolding, spiraling and cell migration we develop everything needed for a healthy life. This weekend will offer time to integrate the material learnt in the training.

Schedule
Fridays: 6pm-8:30pm
Saturdays: 10.30am-5pm
Sundays: 10am-4pm

Price:
900 € – 1150 € (based on your own assessment and ability to pay)

Contact Improvisation

From a shared point of contact, we move into improvisation. Through playing with gravity and other physical forces, rolling, falling, leaning, supporting, jumping, giving and receiving weight, following and leading emerge. The dynamics of movement and touch as well as an alert and present mind facilitate spontaneous communication between bodies. Subtle nuances set the tone for the movement.
Influenced by wonderful teachers such as Nancy Stark Smith, Kirstie Simson, Christine Mauch and Jörg Hassmann, I teach the basic principles of Contact Improvisation. I am continually amazed by the richness this dance form offers.

It is a wonderful CI Festival with the focus on dance! I can recommend it deeply as I have enjoyed being there since many years.


Yoga

I teach an approach to yoga that seeks out forms through mindfulness and anatomical precision while remaining adaptable to the individual body. With this inner clarity established, we move dynamically from pose to pose. The breath serves as an anchor, helping us to dwell in the present moment and return to it whenever the attention wanders. I enjoy breaking down the shapes (asanas) and philosophical aspects of yoga, exploring and perceiving them from a new angle in order to comprehend and deepen their principles and effects.
