Natural Movement Workshops utilise movement therapy practices with a focus on self-exploration With 1
With 15 years as a Professional Dance Practitioner and 7 as Creative Director of Physically Speaking -The Foundation for Natural Dance, I went on to explore the fundamentals of Dance Therapy with students at the Girne American University of Cyprus whilst lecturing there.
Influenced by the work of Anna Halprin and taking a Somatic approach to movement, workshops are built on past Dance experience and teamed with current holistic practice. The session is designed to access inner processes, building awareness through Connection for holistic self-enquiry.
NO PREVIOUS DANCE EXPERIENCE IS NEEDED TO PARTICIPATE IN THIS WORKSHOP
A CREATIVE PROCESS
Workshops are a creative process of unlocking what is stored internally and subconsciously for therapeutic benefits to the body-mind and spirit.
WORKSHOPS ARE SUITABLE FOR:
WORKSHOPS ARE IDEALLY SUITED TO SMALLER GROUPS OF UP TO 6.
THE work is an individual and autonomous journey for each participant. You can share as much or as little as you like with the rest of the group in this safe, non-judgemental, facilitated creative process. Groups are kept small for intimacy.
These sessions are a sensitive and confidential safe space for adults to explore, shift and transform through movement.
My experience working with dance, movement and holistic practices merge in this workshop as we bring together a sensitive and somatic approach to body-mind-spirit exploration.
Fully utilising my dance & creative workshop history and combining it with the coaching skills of NLP, Timeline Therapy and Hypnosis this workshop engages participants in an autonomous journey, tapping into the bodies innate wisdom, to draw out and release any limiting beliefs that are unconsciously stored. Ask your body what it wants and needs. You will be surprised how much it knows.
