Center for Movement Education and Research

Martha Eddy's Somatic Movement Therapy Training (SMTT), founded in 1991, teaches how to attune with one's own and then others' movement habits by skillfully listening, observing and touching. Learn to identify and support anatomically efficient and expressive movement (using the Laban/Bartenieff system) and the underlying developmental and physiological activity (using BodyMind Centering® principles). SMTT students practice matching clients' needs and motivations, and using improvisational tools to discover healthy and dynamic behavior together. This training is designed for working with people of all ages and abilities. It is centered on Eddy's Dynamic Growth Cyclesm: observe, acknowledge, and accept; provide body-mind-spirit support, and explore diverse ways of being.
