School for Body-Mind Centering® Programs offer an experiential approach to movement, the body, and consciousness. People who study the Body-Mind Centering® (BMC®) approach come from a variety of backgrounds but they all share a common interest in the body-mind relationship and want to learn an in-depth, experiential and embodied approach. Whether you are involved with a movement practice (yoga, dance, athletics, martial arts, etc.), work in a therapeutic setting (occupational therapy, physical therapy, psychotherapy, child development, etc.), or are engaged in other expressive arts (visual arts, music, etc.), our programs offer an opportunity for professional development and/or personal growth.
There are two categories of Programs, Core Programs and Application Programs. Programs lead to a certificate from the School for Body-Mind Centering®. Many courses may be taken individually with no prior experience in BMC®.
CORE PROGRAMS AND COURSES
Core Programs consist of a sequential series of trainings that cover the breadth and depth of the Body‑Mind Centering® material. There are three programs in this series, with each exploring deeper levels of embodiment:
- Somatic Movement Education Program
- Practitioner Program
- Teacher Training Program
Application Programs apply key Body‑Mind Centering® principles to specific disciplines.
- Infant Developmental Movement Education Program
All programs are offered through approved training organizations.
