minima somatica is a nucleus of practical and theoretical research in the pedagogies of bodily experience, in the analysis of movement and the dynamics of synergistic interaction between mind, organism and environment – everything that pertains to the disciplinary field of somatic education.

minima somatics offers consultations and exploratory paths to anyone interested, at any age and in any condition of ability, to better understand the organization of their movement and their tonic-postural coordination in order to:

  • relieve chronic pain, stiffness and tension.
  • reduce the stress load
  • improve posture through the exploration of dynamic body alignment
  • expanding movement possibilities;
  • refine proprioceptive sensitivity and self-regulation skills
  • Sustain one’s psychophysical well-being

minima somatica is a studio founded in Faenza by qualified professionals: Thomas Greil, teacher and operator of the methods Body-Mind Centering® and Jeremy Krauss Approach®, and Carla Bottiglieri, teacher and practitioner of the methods Body-Mind Centering® and Rolfing®/Structural Integration.
Each of these methods offers a specific approach to movement exploration based on the common principles that inspire somatic education.

In this perspective, which starts from the understanding of the singularity of the ways of presence and relationship to the world, and from the recognition of the skills that are part of the experience of each subject, it is possible to address the issues of disability, to guide the learning of new cognitive and motor skills, using the sensitivity and intelligence of the body as a ground of mediation.

Our activities are proposed in the form of individual sessions for adults, interaction sessions with infants and children accompanied by their parents, sessions of sensorimotor integration with children and young people with disabilities accompanied by family members and / or caregivers.

On a periodic basis, sensory movement organizes seminars and study groups, inviting specialists and teachers of different movement practices.
