This course was formerly titled Somatic Bodywork and/or Strozzi Somatics
This seminar is designed to offer deep insights into the somatic makeup of human beings using the Strozzi Somatics hands-on approach. Through a process of didactic teaching, demonstration, and practice, participants will see and experience the somatic trajectory of moving from an historical, conditioned shape to personal transformation.
This seminar is a powerful way to develop an empathetic, compassionate presence and build trust while working with others in a variety of emotional states. This is valuable whether you are a coach, bodyworker, business professional, or you are moving through your own transformative process.
For those in our Somatic Coach certification program, this seminar is fundamental to understanding the underpinnings of SI’s methodology, and the why and how the process works on a deep and sustainable level. You will develop keener somatic observation and assessment skills. By developing this ability, you dramatically increase the learning curve and accelerate the development of your clients.
You will learn the Strozzi Somatics™ approach and technique, but this single seminar will not produce deep competency as a Strozzi Bodywork practitioner. Deep competency will be achieved by attending several of these seminars, attendance in the Advanced Strozzi Bodywork Seminar, and supervised practice is recommended. This method and style of somatics is taught exclusively through Strozzi Institute.
For those on a path of personal transformation, you will learn how the body and self are indistinguishable. You will understand yourself somatically and how your personal history and experiences have shaped your world. and how you act in it.
This seminar is designed to explore the Strozzi Bodywork process, assist in understanding and experiencing how the self and body are bound together, and develop an understanding of the principles of Strozzi Somatics. There is also an opportunity to explore and work through deep, personal, transformational issues. Strozzi Bodywork can be very subtle in its effects. It can also be dynamic and life changing in the moment. We suggest participants come to the course able to declare what element of their own personal journey they want to address during this seminar. Strozzi Bodywork is designed to produce profound, sustainable change of one's core historical limitations.
