Essential Somatics® Movement Teacher Training: Level 2

Upcoming Events


Essential Somatic® Movement Teacher Training (ESMTT) Level 2 is the final module of a comprehensive two-part certification course in Somatic Movement teaching with a foundation in Essential Somatics Movements, principles, and concepts. It is intended for those interested in teaching Essential Somatics Movements to others in a group or private setting.

ESMTT Level 2 reviews the basic principles of neurophysiology and assessment of somatic stress reflexes as it pertains to teaching Essential Somatics Movement. Students will also learn Somatic Movement sequences designed to target functional disorders. Coursework will continue past in-class instruction for up to one year. Students are expected to submit remaining coursework and pass both written and practical exams to obtain their ESMTT certification.

Students that apply to the full ESMTT program and successfully complete both training modules (Level 1 & Level 2), all coursework, and pass all written and practical exams will receive the designation of a 200-hour Essential Somatics® Movement Teacher (ESMT). For students wishing to deepen their knowledge of Somatic Movement, ESMTT Level 1 will be the foundational prerequisite for the Essential Somatics® Clinical Somatic Education Professional Training.
