INFANT DEVELOPMENT MOVEMENT EDUCATION PROGRAM (IDME)
“Observe and interact from presence and care, with a playful spirit. Let the baby show you the way, respect his integrity and wisdom: let him be your teacher.”
– Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen
The focus of the IDME 1 and IDME 2 courses are on learning a non-invasive, playful and heartfelt approach to interacting with infants and their families and on applying the developmental movement material specifically in facilitating normal movement in infants.

“I know I have made the right choice to follow the IDME pathway even though It doesn’t directly coincide with my work; I don’t work with babies and families. But in terms of working with young adults (18-24 years of age), it has deepened my awareness/understanding on how to assist engrained patterns that might have been a result of their formative years, and I look forward to further deepening this exploration/knowledge .”

“Now I can see what I overlooked before. Understanding through embodiment stays recorded in my cells. Sharing this module with my baby has given me the opportunity to train how to be with her and in my own sensation at the same time, therefore connecting with her more deeply.”
– Ana Estela Navarro
“I feel that in this module we have been able to connect and shape the material from previous modules concretly and delicately. Connecting with our own history and somatic memory, we stablish more nourishing and enriching bonds with the environment. Empathy and gentleness appear as guides to accompany our facilitation.”
– Malen Iturri
“I have understood more deeply how deep relaxation, Tonic Lab, allows deepening of experience, and offers a ground for learning, the arousal of curiosity and growth.”
– Clair Lalor
“I really appreciated the underlying theme of ‘tone’ and how it relates to development, relationships as well as being an ‘indicator’/’reference point’ in being with children, caregivers and myself, facilitating touch, movement and dialogue. This is very rich for me personally, and is something I will be exploring in a new way.”
– Janet Kwantes
“My experience involved coming in without being sure/remembering why I decided to do IDME 10 months ago. With the deep dive into modulating tone as a key part of facilitation, I remember that my reason is about cultivating the skills of language, touch and self-modulation necessary for showing up for myself and with others, babies and adults in all BMC® work”
– Dora Gaskill
“‘When I touch, I’m also being touched. When I’m touched, I’m also touching’. It seems a profound way to understand communication with others, relationships between beings, and the process of teaching.”
– Raquel Fonfría
