What is somatic education? The study and exploration of the body (soma) from an internal perspective. We use our own senses and perception (proprioception) to navigate, balance, and adjust/adapt as we move through space, responding and relating to ourselves, others, and our environment. A somatic approach can be applied to dance education, athletic training, psychotherapy, dance therapy and more.
