Body Intelligence was formed by Ged Sumner and first taught in Brisbane, Melbourne and Auckland in 2008. The training has quickly spread to South East Asia and North America where it continues to blossom and create communities of Biodynamic CST practitioners.  It is also available in Europe and the Middle East. Ged Sumner and Steve Haines are the Directors of Body Intelligence and are passionate about making the therapy available in a time of high stress and uncertainty in the current world climate. To this end there has been a positive effort made to generate new teachers and assistants across twenty countries. Ged and Steve are native to the UK where they trained with Franklyn Sills in the 1990s. Their vision is to generate competent practitioners for the therapy to flourish and be available to the public. They are also involved in the constant evolution of the course curriculum that reflects new developments in the Biodynamic field and within the Body Intelligence community. They have both written books on a wide range of apects of the Biodynamic paradigm including a joint work on BCST. They both have other books in the making that will be published soon.
