2023 Somatic Movement Summit
Program & Replays
Pick a Spot, Any Spot: All Bodies are Brimming With Beauty and Order
According to Candy Conino, each part of us is designed perfectly for its particular function. When we attend to ourselves through the lens of movement, when we appreciate and respect our natural architecture, we diminish our resistance to our limitations — and take joy in our potential. Candy also delves into what it means to be a confidently competent somatic practitioner, and how practitioners can learn to build both.
In this session, you’ll discover:
- A 10-minute movement exploration of the relationship between structure and function
- Three anatomical misunderstandings that commonly lead to pain and dysfunction
- How to sit more comfortably
