What is BMC®anyway?

Body-Mind Centering® is an approach to well-being and wholeness that empowers those who practice it with information about how the body-mind works.  The approach faithfully lends itself to meeting the body and mind as if they are the same thing, not simply related.  It's an experiential approach –a systemless system– that offers infinite ways to engage with, communicate with, feel, listen to, and respond to what's happening in the body-mind from a personal and intimate place of connection to self and other.

The School of Body-Mind Centering® was founded by Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen in 1973.  It's an international school offering classes, intensives, and programs for fun, learning, fitness, or training to become a Somatic Movement Educator, Infant Developmental Movement Educator, a BMC® Pratitioner, or a BMC® Teacher.
