class description:
So.M.A. – Somatic Movement Attunement ™
So.M.A. is a process of dynamic Rebalancing through Movement. Movement can in fact become a tool for Body Awareness, Research & Intuitive Expression. Via a guided dance open-tasked research and movement approach, the training is aimed to bring a sense of Presence, Embodiment & Awareness to the entire Body and Being.  So.M.A. includes in its practice different elements & tools to stimulate the Body on several levels: the anatomical structures via movement-based exploration, coordination, control, strengthening & awareness; the nervous system regulation through breathing awareness and breath-work; the cognitive structures via self-inquiring & meta-cognitive processing.  So.M.A is intended to be a physical experience, where one is able to understand, process and empower its own physicality; and to get in touch with the natural flow of intuitive intelligence of the Body, on all levels.
