I discovered Body-Mind CenteringTM® (BMC) in August 2004 when I attended a Yoga Teachers’ Training in Bryon Bay, Australia with Donna Farhi, one of the most sought-after Yoga Teachers who fundamentally changed my yoga practice and my relationship with my body. Here, I want also to take this opportunity to show my gratitude to Donna who had created my direct experience of integrated embodiment.
Body-Mind CenteringTM (BMC) is an integrated approach to transformative experience through movement re-education and hands-on re-patterning. Developed by Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen, it is an experiential study based on the embodiment and application of anatomical, physiological, psychophysical and developmental principles, utilizing movement, touch, voice and mind. This study leads to an understanding of how the mind is expressed through the body and the body through the mind.
