Unit One: Embryological Movement Patterns
This course introduces the fluid-based movement patterns that originate in utero, including cellular breathing, pulsation, sponging, navel radiation, mouthing, and prespinal movement. These patterns form the basis for secure attachment, the ability to self-soothe, and successful navigation within the waters of the Stream of Life model.
Unit Two: Vertebral Movement Patterns
The Satisfaction Cycle: how the embodiment of yielding, pushing, reaching, and pulling allows us to move in and out of relationship in healthy and supported ways. You will explore the physical and emotional dimensions of spinal, homologous, homolateral, and contralateral patterns and how incomplete expression of the patterns may reflect incompletions in the Threat Response Cycle.
Unit Three: Primitive Reflexes
Primitive reflexes are involuntary responses of the somatic nervous system to environmental stimuli. In the adult body, the ways in which they manifest reflect our deepest desires to move toward or away from relationship with the world and others. They form the underpinnings for how we respond to threats in the environment and a sense of grounding on the earth and within ourselves. Pathological reflexes may need to be integrated into the nervous system or elicited in order to support healthy responses.
