SOMA is directed by a board of co-directors: Janet Amato and Lulla Chourlin. The administrator is Julie Trouverie. The first certification training in France started in 2006 and was initiated and directed by Vera Orlock. Since then, SOMA has run several Somatic Movement Education (SME), Infant Developmental Movement Education (IDME), and Practitioner Programs. Our students come from dance, performing arts, physical and occupational therapy, and somatics. From the IDME program, we have educators and therapist already working with babies and children.
