We are formed, our very structure and function organized, with self-assessing and self-correcting mechanisms which allow us to realign with our originally intended state of balance.

Our breath…
Our movement…
Our tone…

When uninhibited by our habits, these functions are our most powerful ways to self-regulate.

How do we return to our fullest possibility?

Through touch, movement, sound, and body-based guided imagery, we will explore our own capacity to return, to integrate and to ultimately find ourselves Moving Home.

Alison Zuber’s exploration of the therapeutic and spiritual aspects of touch and movement began in 1977 in response to a need in her community and a deep calling to explore the innate capacity for health and healing.

Her early training includes western allopathic health care, holistic and natural health, therapeutic bodywork, Gestalt and family systems work, conflict resolution and theatre arts.

Alison is a Senior Practitioner (1984) and Advanced Instructor (1989) of Ortho-Bionomy® and has maintained a practice since 1982. She has taught classes throughout the United States, Canada and Mexico.

Alison began her journey with Body-Mind Centering™ in 1989. She was certified as a practitioner in 1994, as an instructor in 1997 and as an Infant Developmental Movement Educator in 2003. She was a member of the faculty at the School for Body-Mind Centering.

She served as the pediatric neuro-developmental movement therapist for St. Vincent’s Infant Development Center and for Casa Rosa, where she worked with infants and toddlers recovering from prenatal exposure to drugs, and as the somatic and movement therapist for Precision Biomechanics, a physical therapy group that specialized in lower extremity biomechanics, dynamic gait assessment and functional spinal rehabilitation. She is a member of the AMTA (1984), a Nationally Certified Therapeutic Bodyworker (1991), an ISMTEA Registered Somatic Movement Therapist (1994), and a SDI registered Spiritual Director (2006).

Alison has written and co-produced award winning educational films for children and is the author of Embodied Anatomy for Children, An Exploration, a teaching manual that emerged out of her anatomy and physiology classes for 3-5 year olds.

Her current inquiry centers around specific moments of transformation and how we prepare ourselves and then bear witness to the movement of Grace in the manifestation of wholeness.

Alison maintains a private practice in Santa Barbara, California where the primary focus of her work is facilitating developmental, cognitive and movement integration for infants, children and adults. Additionally, she is the co-founder and Mashpiah Ruchanit of Zimrat Yah, a post-denominational shul whose mission is to fervently carry Judaism into the realm of Joy through song, prayer and embodiment.
