What is the ICMTA?
The International Conscious Movement Teachers Association is an independent professional association, created in 2013 to support and represent teachers of conscious movement practices.
Currently, if you are a teacher or teacher-in-training of 5Rhythms®, Open Floor, Soul Motion, the School of Movement Medicine, Path of Azul or freedomDANCE, you are eligible for membership of the ICMTA.
Created by teachers for teachers, the ICMTA is a not-for-profit organisation, developed and operated according to the sociocratic principles of Dynamic Governance, an innovative self-governing model for groups that promotes self-leadership and collective intelligence and helps develop a healthy use of power.
The ICMTA is registered in Belgium with members across the world.
