Foundations of Human Movement –
Developmental & Psychological Themes

Saturday 4th July 2020: The Layered Self: The Emerging and Core Self coming into being. Workshop now happening online.

Be guided through a series of movement explorations in your own home. Come together online to share experiences and ask questions.

Learn about some of the fundamental foundations of human movement development in the first months of life. Learn about some of the emotional and psychological themes established as we begin to move, responding to gravity and our growing sense of self.

In this introductory day, the IBMT approach draws on the infant development work of both Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen (Basic Neuro-cellular Patterns) and Daniel Stern (The Layered Self). They both provide frameworks to understand the amazing process that we all go through. You’ll get the chance to explore the intertwined nature of the development of who-we-are together with the evolution of our movement.

Take some time for yourself to find your ground, move, stretch and connect with resources for everyday life. The day will include movement, mark making, writing and sharing. Some teacher demonstrations and short film may be included.

No experience necessary, just an interest in exploring your own movement. You’ll simply need a space that is quiet, private and clear enough for you to lie and roll on the floor at home, a blanket and whatever paper/art materials you have to hand. Breaks will be taken through the day as negotiated in the group.

The workshop draws on material from the IBMT Diploma programme. It is open to all, as well as those interested in the Somatic Psychology Module (starting Autumn 2020) and Infant Movement Development (starting Autumn 2021).

Open to those interested in exploring movement for learning, health and well-being: including Physical Therapists, Bodyworkers, Dancers, Yoga practitioners, Therapists, and those working with babies and young children.
