Somatic Movement re-awakens our inherent agility and expands our
possibilities for moving effortlessly in all we do.
slow, gentle movement patterns liberate us from layers of involuntary,
habitual holding patterns.
Chronic tension patterns change as the body regains its innate ability to
self-correct to ease and efficiency (neuromuscular re-patterning).

Feldenkrais, Alexander Technique, BrainDance patterns &

The 8 BrainDance somatic movement patterns
focus on the fundamental movement patterns which
originally wired our brain/central nervous system. These patterns are the
foundation for all movement and support optimal movement & cognitive
function in any activity you do. Bring agility, balance, strength and
ease to all of the movement activities in your life.
We can expand our possibilities for moving and thus living.
BrainDance is an excellent cognitive and physical warm up. The
re-patterning will improve any physical activity you enjoy.
