A Journey Within the Body

Tutor: Jane Manze

Location: Evolution Arts, 2 Sillwood Terrace, Brighton BN1 2LR
Next start date: Thursday 11 May 2017

In this 5 week Journey of Discovery Within the Body, we will explore movement patterns, key in our development, and that are essential frameworks for our strong, vital, ease and efficient movement today. We will experience Body-Mind Centering® principles and spinal movements with imagery, exercises, hands-on, guided movement, intuitive movement and music. My intention is for sessions to be deep yet light and fun, focussed yet broad and expansive. 

Sessions are open to anybody who enjoys moving and is interested in how they move and has a willingness to explore. Those who have or haven’t been to yoga or movement classes before are welcome! 

Body-Mind Centering® takes us from traditional anatomical and physiological knowledge into the actual physical and emotional sensations arising from the different parts and functions of the body giving us direct experience and a richer understanding of our being human.  This experiential ‘understanding' stays in the body, the organs, the tissues, the cells as we ‘embody’ movement.

Body-Mind Centering® has been described as a fantastic voyage into the intelligence of every cell and every system providing a frame for studying the complexity of the living, moving body in all aspects of life.  The school for Body-Mind Centering® was founded in 1973 by Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen a movement artist and researcher, educator and therapist. Her work has influenced many fields of movement- from dance to child education.

“It’s about trust.  Trusting that your body knows what to do.  It made itself, whatever ‘it’ is and whoever ‘you’ are.  Nobody else knows what’s going on the way you do.”  Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen
