ICMTA Working Circles

A central part of the ICMTA and dynamic governance is that the Association is run by a variety of inter-linked working circles. 

The working circle members are all conscious movement teachers. 

If you are interested in a hands-on experience of dynamic governance and in contributing to the work of the ICMTA with your skills, get in touch with us at info@icmta.com. We will also regularly advertise open positions on our website and in our mailings.
