Organs/ Homologous / Ribs, Pelvis

Here we are dancing and exploring the dIgestive tract, our relationship with taking in and letting go, also our lungs and breathing, our spiral heart and circulation. The sexual organs embryonic development gives information about our ability to treasure our DNA, keep it from changing and deliver it into the the next generation.

We tap into the enteric nervous system, which is independent from the brain and operates with a wide range of chemical and microbiome choicemaking and collaboration. Then we move into the Autonomic Nervous system, which includes the Vagus and Sympathetic nerves and provides the rhythm of wellbeing and trust from within our own body.

Each organ has its own function and expresses itself in dance in a wide range of different ways. In fact - one can diagnose clients by organ, as it supports or falls out of developmental movement patterns. The organs FILL us, they provide a fullness and depth to our movement and expression in life.

Tensegrity/Ligaments/Fascia

Our somatic understanding of fascia is a gateway to understanding self and the relationship between inner and outer space. Not only can we discover aliveness in our tensegrity, our inner guiding strength, we can also learn how to connect into the web of community.

We don't need to employ effort to hold ourselves together! The inherent molecular structure of fascia and ligaments allows for rebound - the elasticity and strength is in the fabric and does not need extra effort. When the ligaments are in flow, awake, alive they provide a support for our actions, which are  orchestrated by our muscles. Muscles get to ride on  this tensegritous cohesion of the ligaments through our body.

Fascia separates and connects our organs, muscles, nerves and ligaments provide close connection and guidance for our actions - Exploring this layer of tissues can dramatically shift the ways that we hold ourselves and act int he world.

Muscles & Kinesthetic Integration

EARN WAYS TO FIND WAYS TO INTEGRATE, EXPRESS, YOUR TRUTH, PLAY, MOVE AND COME TO PRESENCE BY LEARNING ABOUT THE WAYS YOUR BODY/MIND ACTUALLY FUNCTION!

SOMATIZATIONS, BODYWORK, DANCE, AND LEARNING

Understand the anatomy function and gain access to:

The Gutbrain – Intuition, ancient brain,

The Vagal system – Polyvagal theory

Clearing the Synapse – Trauma recovery

Before animals had an nervous system, they were supported by the flow of fluids carrying information through the body. This chemical receptiveness is still in us. We can still rely on the flow of our movements and our fluids to support our nerves

This underlying sense of flow, which can be experienced through sound, meditation of movement is a great tool for yourself, or your practice with clients in psychology, or body therapies.

In this course you will experience new ways to find FLOW in your body and allow your mind to rest, recuperate and re- ignite.

Movement is FIRST! 

When Organisms grow a Nervous System - which they do AFTER the muscles start moving - they are drawn to the movement - they perceive this muscle action and slowly start to coordinate these possible variants. The other information flowing back to the brain from the skeletal muscular system: sensation, digestion, tone are assembled into a whole 3Dimensional experience. 

We CAN keep going back to that initial sense of wonder. When we improvise/ play we offer our nerves a NOVEL experience to record and its sets a line of re- coordinations, relearning, surprise and AWE. Most adults trim their movement options, narrow their choices, and eventually get tired. Bored or depressed. Let’s look at how the BODY gives us ways to support the clarity of our thinking, through meditation, dance and learning about this system. The photo shows the nerves securing the synapse on a muscle

We plan our actions, receiving input from our movement and sensations - and our brain learns: Our brain learns through this amazing coordinated orchestral hum of activity. The brain is always active - not just when we are thinking.  We learn - when different nerves join into a same frequency! 

Activities such as singing lullaby, drumming, and dancing in rhythm can now be seen as supportive of learning and understanding.

Are you wondering how to support your clients in changing patterns they are stuck in? Would you like to have different ways to shift out or fear or stuck places? Lets looks at ways to support these loosenings, these shifts as a group - Let's look at how our ways of relating can support ease and flow of our ideas, plans and imagination! We  can dream and flow as well as think and plan – all of these are the body working with the Mind.

Our belly brain - the brain of the gut actually sets the tone for the rest of the nervous system. Would you like to feel more at ease with yourself? Calm in your organs and digestion? In this workshop you will learn hands on techniques to support and rebalance the depth of your gut and so you will get the opportunity to release and enter into the mind of the OLDEST nervous system: that of the gut! 

If you have any issues with digestion or would like greater access to your intuition - you r gut feeling: this will be an opportunity to receive some touch and somatization to unwind these tissues.

Senses & Perception Moscow

Our senses connect us and illuminate the world for us. In this workshop we will travel through the senses, their embryological origins, their function and integration into our lives. Touch, taste, balance, proprioception, hearing, smelling and vision.
Somatizations and movement explorations will allow students to discover their own pathways of these special senses and their role in development.

 Spine & Bones, Skeletal - Spinal Patterns

Spine & Bones, Skeletal - Spinal Patterns

Developmentally we are now leaving the ocean and the pre-spinal patterns and moving onto land , therefore growing our cartilage into bones! This support against gravity through the bones and joints allows easeful movement in space.

We will look at the actions at joints and their integration across the body - this sets our mind to perceive clarity and structure in space. This provides the basis for structural repatterning techniques that throughout the program add in the ligaments, muscles and organs.

Our bones harbor and protect the creation of blood in the marrow - so we can embody this depth in our lives. We can also learn more about the aliveness and the ability to constantly rebuild and re- form in our bone tissues - each of our movements in relationship to gravity incite growth. Here we re- define the resilience of these tissues and can offer our clients and students this sense of resilience.

Embryo, Prevertebral Patterns & Intro to SomaticBODY

Practicing the return into embryonic time allows us to access our being before our nervous system ran the show. It is a time of amazing growth organized by cellular choice making, renewal, change and growth: these can become templates for our lives now and can heal our organism, our neuro-endocrine balance.

Notocordal time (the soft spine appears and disappears before our now spine) is  time of moving in the dark - the underwater headless fish that swims side to side. Deep water holds embraces  supports buoyancy. IT is less sensing out but feeling one-self moving. the bubbles filled with fluid propelling the body through space. Pressure fields of ocean, currents meet the movement of your body - this embryonic stage supports deep inner knowing, inner focus and movement.


This is the first unit of the MOSCOW Somatic BODY Training - which is open to students of the full program and a few other folks with some background in the field of somatics for single workshops.
