Festival Teacher Biographies

Somatic Movement Education


“Last year’s Somatics Festival was a great experience. I knew when I registered that I’d experience a rich range of classes in this field that I love, which would inspire the growing edge of my clinical practice. What I hadn’t expected was how integrated the arc of those classes would feel, such that by the festival’s end I felt both that I’d done a rich body of inner work, and that I’d found myself part of a wonderful, very welcoming new tribe. And it seemed like everyone else felt that way too. Delightful!”
