BMC Certified Teacher, Practitioner, EAY & EDMY, Qigong
Bob began studying Body-Mind Centering in 1984 with Maryska Bigos. In 2007 he supported her in founding and through 2011 the management of the Kinesthetic Learning Center (KLC). Bob became a certified practitioner (1990) and teacher (2002) of BMC who has been teaching experiential anatomy and physiology in schools of massage therapy and somatic programs for twenty-five years. His interest and practice of yoga led him to receive an Integral Yoga® teacher certification and become a frequent SBMC guest teacher with Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen in BMC Embodied Anatomy & Yoga and Embodied Developmental Movement & Yoga certification programs in Amherst, MA and New York City. Bob began studying and practicing qigong in 1992; holds a teacher certification from Supreme Science Qigong Center and integrates the principles of BMC into his classes. He brings an improvisational theater background, including ten years as a professional, to the experiential learning process of BMC. His lightness and fun in the classroom is grounded by his degree in Biology (1980) and his ongoing studies in science and nutrition that support his understanding and ability to clearly communicate the anatomy and physiology of the body. He served for fifteen years in committee and board roles for NCBTMB and currently maintains a private and group practice in health and movement integration.
