In this 2021 Winter Series, we will explore patterns of movement that underlie ease and a sense of freedom and wellbeing. We will also look at compensatory patterns of movement that cause and express discomfort and stress. REGISTRATION OPENS JANUARY 4, 2021
Below are Bonnie's upcoming workshops. After several very full years of teaching around the world, Bonnie is taking some time to focus on her writing and video projects. She will be teaching a limited number of workshops, mostly in the San Francisco Bay area.
If you are unable to make it to one of her workshops, there are approved Body-Mind Centering® programs and immersion series offered by licensed training organizations in 15 countries. These programs use curriculums developed by Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen as well as her written materials. Many courses in these programs and immersion series can be taken individually without a commitment to an entire program or series.
Bonnie also has book and video materials available for home study. Many people use these materials to deepen their study and practice, start study groups, and share with friends and clients.
In this Fall Series of live online classes, we will explore the spine and related structures and processes, nurturing a deeper relationship with our central core.

Embryological and infant developmental processes build the foundation for our experience of self and others. Exploring these processes through creative movement and play with children can enhance their sense of self and their ability to organize, express, and communicate with others.

Using movement, touch, consciousness, and dialogue, this workshop will be an exploration of basic embryological, developmental, anatomical, perceptual, and psychophysical processes stored in our tissues and nervous system as they relate to our experience of self and other.
July 13 – 28, 2019 | Claremont, California, USA
In this workshop, we will explore opening our awareness to the expressive foundation of our organs and glands. Explorations will also draw from other body systems and from developmental movement and their applications to dance.

Touch is more than our placing our hands on someone. It involves awareness, consciousness, attention and intention. It also involves how we initiate touch. With brain initiated touch, the brain directs the hands. With embodied touch,we listen receptively and cellularly, and on a level more immediate than the brain.
