Clarksville, TN - Margaret Rennerfeldt has an MFA in Dance and Performance and is a member of ISMETA, the International Somatic Movement Education and Therapy Association, as well as SEI Somatic Experiencing International. Several years ago, while continuing to teach reading and dance, she launched a new venture. Mindful Movement is dedicated to authentic and creative movement, innovative and technical approaches, and the ability to spur emotional growth and heal trauma via the physical body.
“My work is different from any psychologist or talk therapist in that it’s not about the story, or about talking, it’s about discovering what is left in the body that was not completed during a traumatic event.”
Margaret understands that when you move the body in distinct ways stuff comes up. People don’t always understand what is happening and what they are feeling and that’s where her role as a teacher, somatic educator and somatic experiencing practitioner comes in. In a typical one-on-one session, Margaret invites the sensations to arise, encourages people to be curious about them, and observes movements as well as subtle changes in the nervous system. Together, they explore all that is taking place. Sometimes people will identify a certain trauma, pain, or unresolved aggression.
Margaret has not performed in recent years but says she will always be a dancer and use her body as long as she can. She believes her passion for dance and knowledge of how the body works are invaluable in helping others to explore movement and achieve optimal wellness.
