Developmental Movement MOSCOW
to Apr 22

Developmental Movement MOSCOW

Developmental Movement Patterns from birth to walking

The Developmental Movement Patterns provide  different ways for the growing  baby to negotiate and engage with the world. These are basic neurological patterns the baby genetically evolves through, from birth to walking.  These movement templates are potent tools for coming into relatedness.

You will be guided through movement patterns and your own personal experience, through dance and touch.

This workshop will study the profound integration of relating and movement patterns: ways to be still and in tune with self, able to interact with others through reach, pull or push. Dancers will have opportunities to examine and expand their movement repertoire advance their Improvisation and Contact skills , Therapists will get more tools to assess and interact their clients in this spectrum, bodyworkers will add in new tools to approach the body in sessions.

MOSCOW Embryology Intensive
to May 2

MOSCOW Embryology Intensive

Our body begins creating its form during our embryological development. As tissues and structures develop, some remain with us, some are transformed into other structures, and some fade into the background, no longer existing or recognizable as the original structure. As with all development, the original processes have left us with deep-rooted patterns and templates that affect our movement, mind, and spirit. In exploring the embryological developmental process, we discover the primal roots of our structure, perception, presence, and flow.

The workshop is geared towards deepening into various themes of in utero development, and exploring how our cells flow and change to differentiate as we are becoming. It is for movers, dancers, yoga practitioners, bodyworkers, and those from other body-mind disciplines interested in unraveling the mystery of embryological development as it relates to cellular consciousness, and movement.

Some of the themes: Fertilization, cellular choicemaking, circulation and heart development, placenta, the three layers of the body, neurulation, kidney development and rotation of the limbs.

The workshop will be both meditative, somatic as well as offer times to move/ dance as well as support processes through hands-on touch.

Students will have access to an online Embryology guide, to learn about this amazing field before, during and after the workshop. You will also receive some materials and make models.

  1. Introduction to Somatic Embryology - Fertilization
  2. One Cell – Many Cells
  3. Blood and Circulation, Placenta, Vessels
  4. 3 Germ layers to body
  5. Notochord - Neurulation
  6. Embryo: Rhythms of movement in Development
  7. Yolk/ Amnion - Autonomic rhythm
  8. Yolk to organs
  9. Limb Rotation
  10. Kidney / Bladder - migrations/ reinventions

 Christine Cole

studied Embryology with Bonnie Bainbridge-Cohen since 1998 and cotaught EMBRYOflow at Earthdance, MA in 2016.

This course is a surprise – as an online Skype supervision went fabulously and opened my eyes to the possibility of conveying somatic embodiment through my voice, visuals  and conversation.
