What is Primitive Somatics?

Primitive Somatics is a brand new group class format with one simple purpose: to experience the principles of the Alexander Technique through in an exploratory, accessible-to-all environment where we learn to move around the world as we did when we were infants!


FM Alexander often referred to the Alexander Technique as a method of "re-education", due to the fact we lose the sense of ease and poise in movement we had as young children in this fast-paced industrialized society as we age. However, modern research suggests that the primitive reflexes involved in the process of learning, most notably, how to crawl, stand, and walk, become fully integrated and virtually obsolete within the first year of the development of most children. So were we ever truly "educated" on movement in the first place?


Primitive Somatics group classes are the best way to experience how we first found ourselves within the space around us through somatic exercises and developmental movement, and they're the best way learn how to consciously apply the principles of the Alexander Technique in your life at a lower cost and barrier to entry. This class may involve hands-on work similarly to that of an AT lesson but it is not necessary much of the time, as many of the exercises are done lying down with gravity taking care of the head and spine.
