Somatic Movements

Somatics is a field within bodywork and movement studies which emphasizes internal physical perception and experience. The term is used in movement therapy to signify approaches based on the soma, or "the body as perceived from within,"  including Alexander technique, the Feldenkrais Method, and Rolfing.  In dance, the term refers to techniques based on the dancer's internal sensation, in contrast with "performative techniques," such as ballet or modern dance, which emphasize the external observation of movement by an audience.  Somatic techniques may be used in bodywork, psychotherapy, dance, or spiritual practices  -  Wikipaedia
