Through movement we learn, we live, we love.
Learning in Action™ addresses how we grow, develop, and form new behavior. Movement is fundamental to all learning. By working directly with the somatic patterns of how we move and how we physically give shape to ourselves and our behavior, we can participate in our actions and interactions on the most fundamental level. We can learn how we move through our lives with greater ease and satisfaction. Learning In Action provides an effective way to participate in the forming and transforming of our actions and circumstances.
