Matthew van der Giessen

Experiential Anatomy Instructor

Matthew van der Giessen has been integrating our understanding of body and mind for over three decades. He has created programs for massage students, bodyworkers, counsellors and yoga teachers. Matthew’s anatomy trainings help somatic practitioners deepen their experience of the sensory/imaginal body. Body tissues are felt and moved so that they can be experienced from the inside-out. The anatomical path of self-inquiry helps practitioners more fully understand their inner sensory landscape, helping them deepen their ability to meet others from a place of embodied presence.
