Body reading, or somato-typology, is a useful tool for understanding the human organism and the integration of mind and body, psyche, soma, and spirit.
Body reading, or somato-typology, is a useful tool for understanding the human organism and the integration of mind and body, psyche, soma, and spirit. Many models for “reading” bodies, constitution, and personality have been used throughout history, each with strengths and weaknesses. In this talk, Dr. Jeffrey Meyers, board certified physician, yoga instructor, and acupuncturist, and Jeff Carreira, author and spiritual philosophy teacher, will explore the historical and experiential foundations of somato-typology—including the roles of awareness, embodiment, comparison, contrast, and figure-ground relationship–and how understanding these foundations may be useful for yoga instructors, body workers, somatic educators, those in helping professions, or anyone with an interest in further exploring the intricacies of the mind-body connection.
This talk is an introduction for Dr. Meyers’ and Jeff’s upcoming 2-day Somato-Typology workshop on April 27th and 28th at The Aligned Center.
Free to attend
