Somatic Education as an Inclusive Perspective in School Physical Education Lessons

Abstract: Somatic education, as a set of corporeal techniques and a relational process that affects our biology, consciousness, and the environment can be developed in the school for pedagogical purposes. This education can further be a mean of including corporeal, behavioral, and physical fitness diversities. This assertion induces the development of reflections on some Somatic Education experiments/researches in Brazil, aiming to initiate an epistemological discussion for new curricular proposals of School Physical Education in Brazilian schools, involving the principles of Somatic Education in their K-12 education.
