Program Description

 These courses prepare you to more deeply understand the body, nonverbal communication, and explore how to engage movement as a therapeutic resource for your clients.

Highly experiential in nature, the learning process cultivates all of your intelligences and invites a rich cross -fertilization of perspectives.

The courses are applicable to a range of settings- from private practice to community programming.

Apply the knowledge gained through your own unique professional lens.
