Center for Somatic Studies

The Center for Somatic Studies was formally organized in 2000 to meet the needs of both the psychotherapy and somatic education communities. It brings together diverse groups of psychotherapists, health practitioners, body workers, yoga teachers, infant educators, and other students of human potential through a variety of courses, workshops, and the two-year Developmental Somatic Psychotherapy training program.

The center reflects an interdisciplinary path that many schools of psychology and body-oriented therapies have been exploring to further their understanding of human development.

The Center for Somatic Studies was founded and is directed by Ruella Frank who has been teaching in the field of movement education since the mid-1970s and has taught gestalt psychotherapy theory and practice since 1986.

The integrative teaching approach of the Center for Somatic Studies has emerged from Ruella’s diverse background in such areas as the Alexander Technique, Sensory Awareness, Body/Mind Centering, Ideo-Kinesis, Breath Rehabilitation, Iyengar Yoga, all forms of dance, as well as her studies of gestalt psychotherapy theory and practice.

The Center for Somatic Studies was founded and is directed by Ruella Frank, Ph.D., who has been teaching in the field of movement education since the mid-1970s and has taught gestalt psychotherapy theory and practice since 1986.
