Mihyun Lee studied dance and psychology. She approaches dance therapeutically with the interplay between psychological intention and physiological expression. For about 30 years of practicing dance shaped her understanding of the primal nature of the body and its expression. By beginning her study in Laban/Bartenieff Movement Studies (LBMS) 2021-2022, she formed her somatic movement education and therapy.
She has trained in dance since 1992 in South Korea. The root of her movement principles came from learning Korean Traditional Dance, Ballet, and Modern dance at Sunhwa Arts School. After achieving solid dance movement techniques, she studied choreography to expand her understanding of dance as creative art at Kookmin University in 2005. She then began to explore contact improvisation and improvisational forms of dance on and off stage in 2009. Through this exploration, she discovered the therapeutic aspect of improvisation. This brought her to study Expressive Arts Therapy and Somatic Psychology under the Counseling Psychology program at California Institute of Integral Studies.
She is enthusiastic to understand each individual’s perspective and diligent to find ways to support each client’s needs. She is dedicated to promoting self-discovery, easefulness, self-awareness, resiliency, and self-acceptance.
