Body Mind Centering (BMC)

‘Body Mind Centering is an ongoing experiential journey into the alive and changing territory of the body.  The explorer is the mind – our thoughts, feelings, energy, soul and spirit.  Through this journey we are led to an understanding of how the mind is expressed through the body in movement’ (Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen).

The BMC approach focuses on two aspects: Developmental Movement and Experiential Anatomy. The particular way Bainbridge Cohen identifies the Developmental Patterns is unique to the BMC approach – calling these Patterns the “neurological organisation”. Re-learning and integrating one’s basic Patterns can open up new dimensions of movement and expression.

In my approach, exploring BMC principles provides connection, integration and deep, inner support for movement.
