Leading Groups  

Focus- Working and Developing Classes and Workshops

Deepening into teaching strategies explored in earlier modules, students will engage further in the discussion and practice of practical implementation of a somatic class for group instruction and transmission.  Class structure, planning and recording will be topics of emphasis.  Students will have the opportunity to lead activities during classroom hours.  Students will be given basic templates to deal with various individual or groups situations.  Students will also be given opportunities to lead class activities and to discuss real-life situations they may encounter.  Explorations will include finding fluid resonance states of thinking/feeling/moving.  Study of how thinking/feeling concepts can be applied to classroom settings.  Students learn to look for restrictions in student’s tissue and sensory-motor capacity as it presents within the expression of the movement. We cover the Language of Somatic Movement, Somatic Movement Teaching Tips, and review foundations of Continuum.

Practicum- Students will present a class and receive feedback first from peers and then teachers.
