Last night I experienced a free introductory workshop to Bothmer – a movement practice used in Steiner Waldoff schools, sometimes called Bother Gymnastics.
What I experienced of Bothmer was gentle mindful exercise within an interesting theoretical framework. I really enjoyed the understanding of mindbody unity and the emphasis on the body as a domain of meaning, dignity and communication. A Western somatic approach, in some ways similar to Being In Movement.
The session was lead by Martin Baker who will be leading a further free session in Brighton on Sunday 14th June. Recommended
