Integrative Somatic Arts | Teacher Training Course
INTEGRATIVE SOMATIC ARTS
Integrative Somatic Arts is a fine-tuned movement and healing practice that was developed after many years of research and development in diverse movement, healing and spiritual practices. Its aim is to offer a profound embodied healing practice and at the same time to acknowledge and integrate all the bodies human kind is comprised by: physical, psychological, emotional, and energy bodies. The practice integrates Experiential Anatomy, Laban & Bartenieff Fundamentals, Feldenkrais, Susan Klein Technique, Yoga, Qigong, Tai Chi, Massage & Physiotherapy, Meditations and Healing Modalities (Cosmic Healing, Breathwork, Craniosacral, Meridian Energy Flow – MEF) as well as the philosophies of Buddhism and Taoism.
To have an extra freedom from within, we will also visit and practice the profound dance languages of Passing Through (PT), Contact Improvisation (CI) and Release Technique (RT).
The course will specifically focus on the state of BEING instead of DOING. It is a fine-tuned course created with a lot of detail and clarity.
Legakis after many years of dance and healing training and personal development, has now developed the Integrative Somatic Arts practice that is based on different profound movement styles and languages as well as spirituality and healing modalities embodying the body, mind, heart and the spirit in unique ways.
ISA is not a dance language but it assists greatly for the dancer to move from a profound inner embodied state. It is a practice open to all who are interested in Somatic practices, Healing and Spirituality.
It is a profound movement, healing, energetic and spiritual practice that brings you in a state of being in which you transcend through movement, energy, healing and spirituality.
INTEGRATIVE SOMATIC ARTS | TEACHER TRAINING COURSE
Welcome to the Integrative Somatic Arts | Teacher Training Course where we will guide you to experience, embody and integrate in body, mind, heart and spirit. We feel that together can make a difference in the world and co-create a harmonious environment for all people.
ISA | TTC is a 4 weeks intensive somatics certification course that is open for dancers, dance teachers, dance educators, as well as any other practitioners who have a practice or want to learn more in somatics.
The course is designed for those who are interested to teach healing integrative somatic practices.
The ISA | TTC is specifically designed to integrate eastern embodied practices and philosophies to learn a new practice and achieve a wholesome empirical experience.
This integration allows a genuine connection throughout all bodies (Body, Mind, Heart, Spirit) to heal and find harmony within the self, with a relationship and in our communities. Throughout our life we pass through a lot of physical, emotional and psychological discomforts, illness and disease, even more so injuries in the body often relate to emotional and psychological imbalances that have a great impact in our life.
The ISA | TTC addresses all bodies for a holistic communication and integration of all bodies, and furthermore it enhances the metaphysical aspects of the human organism.
The way the practice is taught is by focusing on how to genuinely hold space, create a safe practice/work environment, as well as lead a group of people to a great transformation within a professional field of practice. We refer to as “healing” the integration and harmony of all ‘bodies’ of the human being, what in Greek we call Soma, (where somatics is originates from as well), for creating healthy and holistic relationships with the self, with an-other, with communities and with the world.
