Our Sensory – Motor Loop in Touch and Movement

Our nervous system forms the basis by which we interact with our internal and external worlds. It records, organizes, recalls and integrates our experiences. It also underlies our level of consciousness, thought and integrated movement.

This class covers touch and movement activities to better understand the structure and function of the nervous system and nervous tissue. Participants will learn to embody and engage sensory and motor aspects for themselves and with clients. Integrating sensory input and motor output provides a unified presence of being. You will also experience and understand how the autonomic nervous system patterns and shapes the somatic system. Specific movements and facilitation practices can help release residual energy in the nerves and re-educate the central and peripheral systems. Combined with a myelin informed touch, a very gentle and nurturing quality can soothe and support the nerves.

This class is based largely on principles of Body-Mind Centering® and is aimed to help practitioners refine their somatic presence, manual applications and support somatic intelligence through skilled touch and movement. Participants learn to broaden and apply their touch and presence to the modalities and protocols they already use. Class is open to all levels of experience.

We begin class with simple qigong exercise and continue with informational A&P, experiential and manual activities. Please wear comfortable, modest clothing and come scent-free.
