Kevin O’Connor, Ph.D.

Ph.D. Somatics, Fascia Researcher

As a fascia (interconnective tissue) researcher, Axis Syllabus movement analyses teacher, dancer, somatic practitioner, mindful movement coach and biodynamic craniosacral practitioner I have been facilitating group and private somatic coaching practices for the past 20 years. I hold a Ph.D. at the intersection of fascia research, somatic studies and dance studies, where I think through the science and senses of this emerging 21st human biology and its implications for the body-mind connection, well being, and healing. I am also a practicing choreographer and dance improviser.

Testimonials

I have attended several workshops with Kevin O'Connor, and always find his work to add new layers of consideration to my regular practice with movement and embodiment. Something I appreciate about his workshops is the sense of experimentation and critical research that he cultivates in the room where new relations in my bodymind become alive integrated in my practice. ​​It's an extremely fertile and generative mode to be in, and often has brought me back to a the place of wonder at the experience of living in the world, in movement and in relationship to others.

Testimonials

In both of the workshops where Kevin taught, he introduced me to a new way of expanding my consciousness - not only in a physical way but also an intellectual, instinctive & imaginative way. It's hard to put it in words, but his openness and generosity allowed new worlds to appear for me and i'm sure many others - in both my mind's eye,
imagination, and the space.
