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.

Me, Earth and Space – Respond-ability

Body-Mind Centering® Workshop in der Tanzfabrik Berlin

We will explore our relationship to earth and space in and around us. Let the responsiveness to gravity and levity travel through our body. How do we orient in the constancy of change and impermanence? We will see, hear, smell and taste. We will explore the availability of our tissues for touch. Underlying all these “common” senses is movement. Conscious and unsconcious movement that shapes the patterning of our senses. We move toward and away. Perception is a dynamic process.

We will explore our inner orientation within our dancing. Organs, Bones, Fluids will support our actions.

With movement, anatomical images and dialogue we will discover the roots of our senses, perception, respond-ability, and presence which will support movement and dance.

Saturday: 10h-17.30h
Sunday: 10h-13h

Worskshop Fee: 105€

Registration: ninawehnert@gmx.de

Movementresearch
Vussem, Eifel

4-day BMC workshop with Friederike Tröscher, Nina Wehnert and Jens Johannsen.

The smallest and the biggest
The most internal and the most expressive
Letting go into dance and expression

Dancing with the support of the physiological rhythms of particles, breathing, heart-beat, circulation, cells, fluids etc.

In these four days we will explore movement and expression based on the Body-Mind Centering® method of attuning to structure, function and process. Body-systems, developmental movement and embryology will be the backdrop of our research. Unfolding the smallest internal movement into dancing through space.

With Friederike, Nina and Jens, three experienced BMC teachers will play with the multitude and the simple. They invite you to research your own world of movement and expression with them. An event that celebrates coming back to studio-time, to moving together and to investigating tastes, likes, preferences and challenges.

With these opportunities they also invite you to meet and play with the main teachers of moveus, the German licensed organization for BMC-trainings. In addition to moving, touching and being we will use our meeting to discuss and answer questions about the BMC-training, it’s range and benefits and the possible applications of the work.

Join Jens, Friederike and Nina from Thursday October 8th – Sunday the 11th in Mechernich-Vussem, a small village in the Eifel, an hour south of Cologne.

Times:
Thursday – Sunday 9.30 – 12.30 and 14.00 – 17.00 except Sunday, shorter lunch and end at 15.30. Friday- and Saturday-evenings will also have events as part of the course.

Costs:
360,–€, Early Bird 320,–€ if registered by August 15th. (When participating in both Workshops 650,–€ and 600,–€ if registered by August 15th)

Teaching is in English and / or German, as necessary.

We will have to comply by the rules of distancing and hygiene as they will have developed by the time. We ask every participant to be conscientious and not participate in case of lingering colds or flu-like symptoms.

Fluidity
Warsaw

Fluidity
Body-Mind Centering® into dance.Fluids in our body are a vast transportation and communication system that nourish and move us from deep within. They underlie presence and transformation and modulate tension and relaxation. They move us and let us feel alive!  They support lightness, freedom, dynamic and stillness of our movement.
As a multicellular being our body developed in fluid environment; our first movement patterns are explored in fluidity. Our body still contains mainly fluid and fluid tissue.

We will use this inner fluidity and the specificity of certain fluids to explore movement, rhythm, pulse, spirals, weight and space.

We will discover the inner organisation of the body’s function and how it balances movement, awareness, stillness and action.

Depending on the current situation, we will work with safety measurements.

Body–Mind Centering® Training in Berlin

81h / 6 WE // January 2021 – June 2021 // Somatische Akademie Berlin

In this six-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: 15. – 17. January 2021 // 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: 19. – 21. February 2021 // 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: 26. – 28. March 2021 // 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: 23. – 25. April 2021 // 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: 21. – 23. May 2021 // 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: 25. – 27. June 2021 // 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.

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.


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.
