Somatic Movement in Scotland

What is Somatic Movement Education (SME)?

The greek word 'soma' means, 'the living body' or 'the body experienced from within'. SME encourages body-mind integration through movement awareness and experiential body practices that promote self education. This is a transformational learning process that can include breath, touch, sound, imagery.

Through changing our habitual movement patterns SME releases muscle tensions and unblocks neural pathways to encourage your body to move as an integrated whole. This creates an efficient, balanced body that supports you as you move through life.

stress/anxiety/depression
