Mihyun Lee

Movement Analyst and Therapist

I studied dance and psychology. For about 30 years of practicing dance professionally shaped my understanding of the primal nature of the body and its expression. My perspectives on body, movement, and expression have been developed by graduate education in Somatic Psychology. I formed my services in somatic movement education and therapy influenced by my advanced study in Laban/Bartenieff Movement Studies (LBMS) at Integrative Movement Studies 2021-2022. My service is oriented towards promoting psychological wellbeing through physiological practice. Many of my clients including a few somatic psychotherapists have appreciated my unique service that specifically integrates psychology and movement. 

Relationship, Polarity, and Integration have been important concepts for her private and professional life. She often finds wisdom in polarities and believes acknowledging the opposite components in polarity is a way to integrate oneself.  

Let’s Talk What You Need and What I Can Offer


Contact Improvisation

I facilitate CI private lessons for couples to improve attunement and communication skills and for individuals to rebuild self-esteem from interpersonal trauma and build satisfying boundaries by examining their own embodied responses regarding “yes, maybe, no”. 

Nothing into Something

It is designed to promote self-discovery through movement exploration in a group setting. It is a guided self-discovery through movement exploration that often begins with a gesture that is generated by you while sharing your ordinary daily life check-in. My observation and input assist clients to see and feel how their unconscious is revealed.

Touch for Repatterning

I offer private rehabilitative therapy to restore functionality and to foster efficiency by repatterning dysfunctional patterns of movement and habitual responses. This service is good for people who have chronic pains and needs to increase functionality of movement such as athletes and first time caregivers.

I have had the chance to work with Mihyun in the context of the Integrated Movement Studies program as both her mentor and as a participant in her work.  In my observation, she is exquisitely attuned to the center of her own being and from that place, she is able to hold space for others to explore the different facets of their humanity through movement and somatic practice.  She is in deep relationship with the many dynamic parts of the self, and how those emerge and recede over time.  Ultimately Mihyun serves as a tender embodied witness to her clients’ integration toward wholeness.

I first met Mihyun through Integrated Movement Studies, where she is a graduate, and have experienced the impact of her work in my own life. Mihyun’s approach, Kinesiopsychotherapy, opened by eyes and my heart to new understandings of myself and my body. Working with her helped me get in touch with polarities I was struggling in my work and personal life. Her facilitation lead me to experience a clarification and understanding of these poles in a way that I felt more whole and capable of working with each. Working with Mihyun gave me new tools to be with the tensions in my life and move forward in a supported and generative way. What I gained through the experience continues to support me both physically and emotionally as I encounter new challenges and discomforts.
