Unity Space and Vangelis Legakis will be occasionally invite participants who have good standards in the somatic practice to teach in festivals and projects. Eventually, Van and Unity Space, aim to create a strong team of teachers to spread Somatic and Healing Practices to different studios, academies, universities, institutions as well as in community centers to open the practice to all people from diverse professional backgrounds.
