An integrated approach to somatic movement analysis and reeducation, body awareness, and development of consciousness.

Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen

Developed by Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen since the early 1970s, Body-Mind Centering® is an experiential study that makes use of movement, conscious touch, voice, and mind in the exploration of anatomical, physiological, and psychophysical principles, as well as developmental movement.

BMC® has a wide range of applications: dance and movement studies, somatic education, school education, rehabilitation, psychotherapy, martial arts, sports, yoga, and more.
