Welcome to Somatic Education Australasia (SEA), dedicated to the flourishing of somatic education, somatic arts practice and body-mind research in the Australasian region.

We are pleased to offer the first licensed Body-Mind Centering® (BMCsm) program in Melbourne, Australia, beginning with the SOMATIC MOVEMENT EDUCATOR certification program beginning in 2019. Along with BMC programs around the world, our courses have been postponed since early 2020 due to the pandemic. We plan to resume the program in October, and appreciate your patience and understanding during these fluid and disruptive times. Sign up for our mailing list and check back here for schedule updates.

•are inspired by the process of embodiment
•want to develop ways to move in consciousness and presence
•have an interest in embodied anatomy and developmental movement
