Body-Mind Centering® - Embodying the Skeletal System with Sebastian Bechinger and Melody Shantala Sacco

May 17th & June 7th 6.30-9pm; June 15th 10.30-4.30

Body-Mind Centering® is an encompassing and embodied approach to movement, experiential anatomy, embryology and human development.

These classes are focussed on the skeletal system. Composed of bones and joints, the skeleton creates a living and dynamic structure of support within the body, giving form, protection and carrying us through space in relationship to gravity. Embodying bone supports the quality of effortless clarity.

Facilitators Melody Shantala Sacco and Sebastian Bechinger are Somatic Movement Educators in Body-Mind Centering®. Melody also holds a Diploma in Community Dance (Trinity Laban) and Sebastian holds a BA in Choreography (Dartington College of Arts).

Location: Tanz*Hotel, Zirkusgasse 35, 1020 Vienna

Costs: Friday classes - by donation; Saturday class €30-40

Private Sessions

In Vienna

One to One Sessions focusing on embodied wellbeing, and its physical, developmental and psycho-emotional foundations.

Utilising touch and bodywork, movement analysis and repatterning, and verbal dialogue bringing awareness to how your mind is expressed through the body in movement.

These sessions will promote ease and vitality whilst addressing ineffective and habitual psycho-physical patterning.

Working with Sebastian is a wonderful and enlightening experience. His detailed knowledge of, and enthusiasm for, the body-mind is both fascinating and infectious. He has a direct and gentle way of sharing his insights. I come away from these explorations feeling lighter, energised and enthused.
