Practices in Embodied Teaching
with Amy Matthews

Two Year-long Series of 10 Weekends

Practices in Embodied Teaching is made up of two year-long series of 10 weekends. These weekends provide opportunities to explore advanced concepts in anatomy, kinesiology, physiology and embryology.

We pay particular attention to the development of embodied teaching skills and explore what it “is” to transmit information with skill. Students are challenged to use these explorations to develop principles of skillful teaching and put them into practice.
