Myra Avedon has been researching, developing and teaching somatic and transpersonal therapies that enhance human potential for over 35 years.  She works with presence and relational principles in supporting greater ease and cultivating openness to new possibilities.  


She teaches internationally offering beginning through advanced sessions, classes, workshops and trainings in embodiment practices, psychophysical integration, therapeutic bodywork, experiential anatomy, and somatic and developmental movement education.


Her private sessions are different with each person, because it is not based on a single technique or one specific model.  She pulls from a wide range of experience and training to best meet each situation.  Thus each session is a co-creative process developed with the person in the moment to meet the need of the moment.
