Movement is the only way a person can change or interact with her or his environment. Thus at West East Somatics we see each individual as fundamentally a mover and sensory-motor learning as the key to change in an individual.


Our Mission

The mission of West East Somatics is to help people of all movement abilities become better and more comfortable movers through the use of somatic education. To achieve this goal we offer weekly classes, workshops, and one-on-one sessions customized to the needs of each individual.

Somatic education is the use of sensory-motor learning to gain greater voluntary control of one’s physiological processes. It is “somatic” in the sense that the learning occurs within the individual as an internalized process.

... the only direct outward effects of our will are our bodily movements.
