Somatic Educator and Filmmaker

Johan Planefeldt, B.A.

VANI Studio

Johan Planefeldt is a film director and somatic explorer. His interest in the body-mind complex began in the 90’s as he discovered the ability to enter into deep states of trance. Since then he has studied and practiced trance work from different cultures and traditions. In 2011 he discovered his love for contact improvisation which led him on a deep embodiment research where he studied practices like Authentic Movement, Body Mind Centering, Butoh, Holotropic breathwork & Vipassana meditation. The last years of studies have been dedicated to trauma informed somatic therapy like Somatic Experiencing, Polyvagal theory and NARM. He is regularly facilitating trance dance and authentic movement workshops alongside directing films on the topics of somatics and trance.
