Embody-Move Association

The Embody Move Association was founded in 2008 to license the Somatic Movement Education (SME) programme and deliver it in the UK.

From the program list you will see that we are now delivering the Infant Developmental Movement Education (IDME) program courses and the BMC Practitioner program (for graduates of the SME program).

The Somatic Movement Education (SME) programme runs over 2 years. As you will see the four pre-requisite courses for the IDME program are taking place in Edinburgh

Do I have to start with the first course? It is possible to start with any course at any point in the cycle.

Can I take one course and not the whole program? All the body systems and developmental movement courses in years 1 and 2 may be taken as individual courses, they can also be taken in any order in the cycle.
Please contact us through the contact us form or e mail; katy@embody-move.co.uk or registration enquiries embodymoveoffice@gmail.com
