Move, Release, Feel, Respond
The Non-Linear Movement Method® (NLMM) is a powerful somatic modality developed by Michaela Boehm.
The method is rooted in her early somatic training and has been developed and refined within her extensive clinical experience, both while working within a demographic with severe trauma, addiction and personality disorders, as well as in her private counseling practice.
NLMM® was further refined and adapted for a broader use, as a means of connecting participants with their inner landscape, exploring and releasing physical contractions, withholds and emotional closures. New modalities were added to train interoception, responsiveness, as well as locate pleasure and aliveness within the body.
The method is specifically designed as a “no force/no imposition “ somatic modality and can be practiced by anyone, regardless of physical health, ability, fitness level or age.
NLMM is facilitated on a mat or blanket. Participants dress similar to a Yoga or Dance Class, in comfortable, non-restrictive clothing.
The method can be practiced at any age, fitness level and mobility. The movements are designed to be self regulating and can be done in any position, including laying down.
