Erika Berland

Erika has been practicing and contributing to the fields of somatic movement education for dancers, actors and athletes, movement training, bodywork and Buddhist meditation for over 30 years.

Her technique is part of a broad approach to bodywork and movement training, which engages all the systems of the body:

  • skeletal,
  • muscular,
  • organ,
  • endocrine,
  • nervous system, and
  • fluids.

Primarily drawing on the principles of Body-Mind Centering(R) developed by Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen, her work also includes Massage Therapy, Integrative Acupressure, and movement training and analysis.
