Practices in Embodied Teaching

Saturday Workshops with Amy Matthews

Practice shows up in many ways – we have movement practices, spiritual practices, meditation practices, somatic practices, and more. These Saturday workshops hold the questions: how can teaching be a practice? Are we making the choices we want to in our teaching? Can we make different choices?

Each workshop has a topic from the fields of developmental movement, somatics, anatomy, kinesiology, physiology, and embryology, and includes lecture, discussion, movement and a teaching exploration. In addition to learning and experiencing the material, we’ll consider how deepening our own embodiment supports the practice of teaching.

These weekends are open to teachers interested in exploring their embodiment and developing their teaching in this context. You can take the weekends individually and in any order.
