Somatic Synthesis Workshops
with Amy Matthews

Two Year-long Series of 10 Weekend Workshops

Somatic Synthesis Workshops (SSW) are made up of two year-long series of 10 weekend workshops. These workshops 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.
