Moving Soma: The Centre for Embodiment and Somatic Movement Education & Therapy

The purpose of Somatic Movement Education & Therapy is to enhance human function and body-mind integration through movement awareness. Professional practice combines experiential anatomy, sound, breath, touch and imagery to bring awareness to the self-regulatory intelligence of the body. Somatic movement practitioners work sensitively and gently with the human body,  acknowledging that movement affects dimensions of psyche and spirit as well. As a result, practice facilitates improved vitality,  creativity,  easeful movement functioning, and a restful embodied experience. The profession, as represented by ‘International Somatic Movement Education and Therapy Association (ISMETA)’ helps students and clients in some way to:

​​​recognize habitual patterns of perceptual, postural and movement interaction with the environment

improve movement coordination that supports structural, functional and expressive integration

experience an embodied sense of vitality and create both meaning for and enjoyment of life

focus on the body both as an objective physical process and as a subjective process of lived consciousness

refine perceptual, kinesthetic, proprioceptive, and interoceptive sensitivity that supports homeostasis, co-regulation, and neuroplasticity
