“This was one of the best trainings I have ever done. Angie is incredibly knowledgeable and presented the material in a way that was engaging, understandable, and practical. I learned so much about myself and my body, and gained invaluable insight into my work with couples, families, and individuals. Angie has such a gentle manner, but also challenged me to push my growth edge and take risks. I highly recommend this training for any person with a body.“MELANIE SZUCS, MA, LPC, LMFT, Mindful Counseling, Grand Rapids, MI

The body has an amazing ability to regulate, protect, express, communicate and heal, and body awareness and clear movement expression are critical for strong and healthy families, marriages, work teams and communities. In other words, how people move (and how you move when treating them) matters.
Through body awareness and movement that releases, awakens and enlivens the FEELING body, you can guide others in finding resilience, purpose, sensitivity and freedom, all without saying a word. Somatic movement education/therapy is a holistic approach to moving well that focuses on the internal experience of the moving body rather than an external end result like building muscle or losing weight. Moving the body with awareness and intention brings together the physical, mental and emotional parts of our being.
Sensing ~ Feeling ~ MOVING is designed for HEALTH, MENTAL HEALTH and WELLNESS PROFESSIONALS to help you confidently, effectively and joyfully bring the body‘s wisdom into your work with patients or clients while simultaneously increasing knowledge of and connection to your own feeling, moving body. A one-hour “intro” workshop is also available.
Interested in hosting a team training? On-site space requirements: large space, free of furniture and obstacles, with safe flooring. Please inquire about this and about travel and accommodation expenses for those outside of West Michigan during your COMPLIMENTARY CONSULTATION.
Class size is limited to ensure personal attention and feedback, supporting your wellness and wholeness while equipping you to care for others.
Course includes a comprehensive study guide for future reference, helpful resources, and video access to movement exercises and experiences to apply immediately in your practice.
What to wear: Please dress in comfortable clothing that allows you to lie, sit, stand and move comfortably. Layers to cover knees and elbows for comfortable “floor work” is recommended.
