The Whole Person Somatic Movement Program trains psychologists and therapists, yoga & movement professionals, and body workers to incorporate developmental movement principles into their work.

Personal embodiment—both body awareness and the capacity for kindness, appreciation, and wonder at one’s own body wisdom—is a primary tool to support transformation on physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual levelsThe program is based on the knowledge that human development occurs first through the language of movement and touch and relationship, and provides educators, therapists, and creators with a psychophysical model both for supporting motor development and repatterning behavior. It includes instruction in movement facilitation, touch skills, creative expression, and psychodynamic facilitation.
