About us

We teach therapeutic approaches at the intersection of ancient wisdom and modern science.

We offer professional training courses in Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy, Polarity Therapy, Verbal Skills and Polarity Life Coaching, as well as continuing education in Embryology, Pre- and Perinatal Therapy and Working with Babies. Students graduate from our programs with a broad base of knowledge including in-depth study of anatomy, the Autonomic Nervous System, and leading scientific research, as well as embodied understanding of energetic anatomy, mindfulness, presence and clinical skills to use in practice with clients. Trainings blend experiential and didactic learning to offer learning that is transformative, both in clinical practice and lived experience. Our programs are developed for those with extensive experience in the healthcare field and newcomers alike.

Our primary teachers, Anna and John Chitty bring over 40 years of study, practice and research to our courses. We partner with leading teachers, including Ray Castellino, Jaap van der Wal and Franklyn Sills, to offer a cutting edge education in somatic therapy.

One of my favorite things about this course has been the way that ‘esoteric’ philosophy combines so skillfully with human anatomy. I now have a deep understanding about energy as the underpinning of matter.

Words are hard to do this course justice. I’m grateful, humbled and inspired.
— BCST Graduate 2016
So superb, interactive, dynamic, soft, sincere, humorous, full of potency, leaving me always satisfied and wanting more! This is the class I’ve been looking for 7 years. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
— Polarity Therapy Graduate 2014
I am in deep gratitude. This class has blown my mind open so far; I couldn’t have comprehended how much I would have learned or how deep I would have gone into the experience of being connected with everything around me.
— BCST Graduate 2016
