Emotional Body® lessons center around the instruction of the emotional effector patterns, while using somatic education methods to help you understand how to fully embody these patterns and physically “tune into” your body using all your senses (sight, smell, taste, sound, touch, and movement). Gentle and gradually paced lessons raise your awareness of minute muscle movements, breathing patterns, and emerging feelings. Lessons are designed to connect these somatic sensing skills with the development of physical self-regulation of emotions, emotional fluency and personal expression. Learning how emotions emerge and express in and through your body is an essential element in achieving somatic self-regulation of emotion.
"Through the practice of this technique I learned how my body processes emotion from a different point of view and with that came empowerment. My body is no longer the "victim" of emotions, it is the vessel in which I allow them to live freely, without fear." ~ Cora Kennedy, Actor (Toronto Training, 2019)
Emotional Body courses may also incorporate additional somatic education methods (taught by certified practitioners) like Feldenkrais® Awareness Through Movement® lessons and Estill Voice® lessons to help individuals achieve an even deeper understanding of physical and vocal expression patterns inherent in their behavior, and provide new choices in expression.
