Somatic Movement Summit

Join us for the free online Somatic Movement Summit, June 5-10, 2023. This summit has been a collaboration between The Shift Network and Living Somatics, and we hosted and curated the program for the first three years of the summit, 2020-2022.
This five-day free online event offers easy access to the growing field of Somatic-based practices. The summit will feature more than 40 speakers, bringing together pioneers in the somatic movement field. The focus of this year’s summit is to explore fluid, connected somatic movement practices for flexibility, vitality and embodied self-knowledge.  
The summit is a mix of individual interviews, guided practice sessions and panels. The sessions bring science, experience and wisdom into practical application for a more embodied and whole life. Some of the disciplines featured are the Feldenkrais Method®, Continuum, Hanna Somatics, The Alexander Technique, Body-Mind Centering®, and many more. The speakers will be sharing practices with you and guiding you through somatic awareness inquiries such as micro-movements, grounding, centering, meditation, and breathing. These are all valuable ways to self-regulate your health, and you will discover new opportunities to refine your current practices.
We find ourselves in a very acute transformative time and people are turning more and more to their inner resources for solutions. This summit is bringing together experts from many different perspectives to help people discover and expand their first-person experience. The vision is that this summit will support communities throughout the world to be healthy, happy and at peace.  
During the Summit, the sessions air daily at 9am Pacific Time (West coast USA). The schedule will show up in your local time and you will have access to a 24h free replay throughout the summit.
We are so happy to invite you to this wonderful lineup of knowledgeable speakers. The summit is for both those who are beginning to explore Somatic movement and for experienced Somatic practitioners.

Here’s what participants had to say about previous years’ Somatic Movement Summits that we hosted:

“It was outstanding in the breadth and depth of content and the speakers’ knowledge and experience…” Congratulations to all involved in the Somatic Movement Summit 2021. It was outstanding in the breadth and depth of content and the speakers’ knowledge and experience - a wealth of information and inspiration. I'm looking forward to next year's summit already!”


“I have bathed in somatics for a whole week and it has truly awakened my passion for somatic movement!”Thank you Gayatri and Siddharta for an exceptional summit, and your fantastic interventions!

“To connect with my own stillness, in a space held with such gentle wisdom, was truly special and heart-opening.”These workshops provided connection to my own somatic healing journey in a way I didn't even realize I needed. To connect with my own stillness, in a space held with such gentle wisdom, was truly special and heart-opening. It reignited and validated all I've learned so far, and opened doors to knowledge that is profoundly personal. Somatics can be applied to everyone's journey with trauma, tension and expansion.”

“Thank you for creating this beautiful space of learning.”This summit is absolutely the one that I most look forward to each year. It reignites my love affair with movement and fills me up! Thank you for creating this beautiful space of learning. It is such a gift that you offer us. I'm already”

“The Somatic Movement Summit is inspired.”The Somatic Movement Summit is inspired. There are many different modalities presented, all with the same outlook.It was interesting to hear my own experience as someone with chronic pain and fatigue, articulated and verbalized. I feel so inspired to continue my own somatic movement path, and I feel better and more relaxed after it.”

I cannot amplify the importance of such an event available worldwide enough!”

“I feel privileged to have so many masters’ presentations available right at my fingertips (Literally!)”The incredible vastness of speakers, their experiences, and their personal history in relation to the development of somatics itself - all of these things contributed to an opportunity for learning and development - especially for persons involved in any aspect of physio-psycho work or theory! As a Chinese martial arts instructor, whose interest in mind-body therapeutics ranges from Alexander technique, and Feldenkrais, to all of my own TaiJi, BaGua, and Qigong training spanning 35 years, I feel privileged to have so many masters’ presentations made available right at my fingertips (Literally!)”
