For over 30 years, Somatic Movement
Educator and Therapist ~ Teri Carter,
has been drawn to exploring the
mystery of "the body", particularly as a
portal into direct experience of health,
creative flow and embodied
performance. Her inquiry involves
awareness that is cultivated through
fluid movement, sound, stillness, and
sensation that supports conscious
embodiment. This paves the way to
for ease and fulfillment in daily life.
Teri maintains a private practice in
Los Angeles, offering hands-on
therapies, movement integration, and
life performance coaching. She also
teaches group workshops and
performs dance internationally.
Teri gratefully acknowledges the
courage and vision of her mentors,
notably: Emilie Conrad of Continuum,
Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen of
Body-Mind Centering, Su Dong Chen
of Essence-of-Evolution, Bruce
Frantzis of Energy Arts, and Steve
Paxton of Contact Improvisation.

Individual sessions are a chance to

material for healing, integration,
and life purpose.
SOMA refers to the body experienced from within. The term 'Somatics' was coined by Thomas Hanna.
Somatic Movement refers to a field of practice that fosters health and creativity through body-centered
methods that assist people in integrating and transforming 'self' through movement and awareness
Somatic Movement is an excellent resource for enhancing movement integration and athletic
performance, as well as resolving injury, pain, and personal patterns that no longer serve you. Tapping
into fluidity and experiential anatomy provides a remapping for health, physical prowess and life
perceptions. When individuals participate in their personal process through embodied awareness, they
can amplify the health of their tissues, mind and spirit . . .
Freedom of movement is achieved by releasing density (known as restriction) in our physical
landscape. We do this by opening the body's tissues as well as one's perceptions, through awareness
of sensation and spaciousness. This receptive state allows for optimal wellness and deep presence
when interrelating with one's environment and circumstance. Freeing oneself from cultural, personal
and physical habit in this way offers new possibilities in all areas of life.
|Somatic Movement is a term that refers to a field of practice that transforms the health and creativity
of your body and mind from the inside out. Tuning our attention to the gentle whispers of our own
proprioception, we learn to listen and communicate with our bodies through the language of breath,
sound, movement, and sensation.
