Deep dive into mindful movement: An introduction to somatic education
The word "soma" comes from the Greeks and means "living body", addressing body-mind-spirit as a whole. Somatic education is both art and science. It is a type of bodywork that focuses on the internal perceptions of the body. It unfolds through slow, guided explorations of mindful movement, at the intersection of health, self-regulation, consciousness, and self-transformation. These gentle explorations are suitable for participants of any age or movement background. They are for anyone with a body!
Isabelle finds meaning to her life by immersing herself in the study of movement. She spent the last few years completing a master's in dance at UQAM. In parallel to her university career, she has been progressing toward becoming certified as a Somatic Movement Educator in Body-Mind Centering ®. This call to self-awareness through movement begins with her passion for Argentine tango, which is at the center of her research. Isabelle is particularly interested in how increased body awareness can deepen the experience of connecting with another through dance. Isabelle has been part of the Ottawa tango community since 2009.
This class will be offered in person only at the Brantwood Park Fieldhouse (39 Onlsow Crescent)
