Event Description

Our Somatic Movement Teacher Training gives you a solid grounding in Somatics, as well as introducing you to the core principles and techniques used in our teaching approach. The course will give you the flexibility to both teach somatic movement classes and/or adapt and transform your existing movement practice to give it a somatic flavour.  We will guide you into using somatic teaching skills, including the Art of Cueing, Use of Language and Motor Planning, as well as help you utilise somatic movement techniques: Pandiculation, Differentiation, Fractionation and Integration. Our training is aimed at existing movement teachers wishing to extend their development into this area. Having some experience of Somatic Movement, either through personal explorations via online videos/DVD, or participation in classes or workshops before attending the course is a requirement. We have video tutorials and classes that can assist you with this. During the course we will focus on 15 foundational Somatic Movement Sequences, highlighting the core components of each sequence as well as how to bring variety into your teaching of them. The movement section of the course is divided into 9 key areas:

  • Soma Scans
  • Movement Pattern 1: Back Shortening /Front Lengthening
  • Movement Pattern 2: Front Shortening /Back Lengthening
  • Movement Pattern 3 : One Side Shortening /OneSide Lengthening
  • Movement Pattern 4: Rotational
  • Hips and Legs
  • Neck and Shoulders
  • Breathing
  • Walking

The training includes

  • comprehensive manual
  • downloadable videos for each of the Somatic Movement Sequences taught
  • entry into an online RSY Somatic Movement teachers support group
  • access to further continuing education trainings

The course will be delivered via

  • 10 x 3.5hr group sessions using Zoom (recorded for future use)
  • a Facebook Group for ongoing support and connection as well as course related Q&As
  • Video tutorials of all the movement sequences
  • Access to recorded classes taught by Radiant Star Yoga
  • 1:1 Zoom calls during the training, as needed

In addition, participants will be encouraged to organise practise teaching sessions online in peer-to-peer groupings to help integrate new learnings and develop new teaching skills.   The training will be led by both David and Amanda.
