Learning to Move: Intro to Neuro-Motor Development (with Mandy Chan and Dana Davison) Go back to the beginning, from cells to pre-birth, with a basic introduction to embryology from a Body-Mind Centering® perspective, to our earliest memories of our very creation, and see how it informs our movement patterns today. Move from newborn to one-year-old patterns, experiencing the relational cycle of yield, push, reach and pull, as well as the Series One developmental movement exercises, also from the work of Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen. Practice adult forms through limb relationships and integration, bringing Bartenieff back into the mix, as we practice and apply these teachings to MFL.

This coursework is part of four workshops for the Moving for Life Certified Instructor training program which can be taken by anyone, and can also count as credit toward becoming a Certified Teacher of BodyMind Dancing, and/or Dynamic Embodiment Practitioner. Based on Martha Eddy's somatic movement work, the courses take a Dynamic Embodiment (DE) approach to Bartenieff Fundamentals, Laban Movement Analysis and Body-Mind Centering® Embodied Physiology/Body Systems and Neuro-Motor Development. Classes are designed to help instructors become exquisitely attentive and adaptive to the needs of diverse students – people with a range of illnesses, ages and movement backgrounds. Discount available for taking all four.
