Workshop for Teens and Teachers—Susan Bauer, “Somatics with Teens” based on her book “The Embodied Teen: A Somatic Curriculum for Teaching Body-Mind Awareness”. Co-hosted by Hatchery Dance Company—Teens who love to dance.
Somatic practices help us learn about our bodies and build inner resources to tap into our body intelligence on a regular basis. Basic principles of somatics—like paying attention within and developing a less judgmental ‘inner witness’— can be a key to helping teens to thrive. But how do you make these practices accessible for teens, so they can develop a level of comfort with their own bodies? This workshop will engage teens and adults alike in fun and teen-friendly somatic movement activities that encourage compassion for oneself and others and establish a base for lifelong well-being. Come see how it’s done!
