Are you curious about the origins of your body? Do you want to learn more about the structure and function of the different body systems? Are you seeking more ease, comfort, clarity and choice in your movement?In this class series we'll increase kinesthetic awareness through the experiential study of our Anatomy and Ontogeny. We will use books, images, guided movement, hands-on partnering and discussion to deepen in our experience of our corporeal selves. In Developmental Movement we will move how we grew through the practice of Body Mind Centering®, a somatic modality that has both therapeutic and creative applications.

**This class is for all folks who enjoy playing and learning through movement. Wear clothes you feel comfortable moving in!
