Natural Dance Workshops utilise movement practices with a focus on self-exploration and healing.

 

With 15 years as a Professional Dance Practitioner and 7 as Creative Director of Physically Speaking -The Foundation for Natural Dance, Lisa 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 bespoke workshops are built on Lisa’s Dance experience and teamed with her holistic practice. The session is designed to access inner processes, building awareness through Connection, Kinetics and Kinaesthesia, for holistic self-enquiry. The aim is to bring about expression in multiple forms for emotional balance and other therapeutic benefits, such as:

  • self-understanding
  • relationship – with the self and others
  • release of unwanted energies
  • positive interaction
  • freedom of expression
  • connecting the mind, body and spirit
  • General well-being
  • Positive interaction with others

Workshops are a creative process of unlocking what is stored internally and subconsciously for therapeutic benefits to both the body and the mind. Although the workshops are delivered in groups (of 6 or more), 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 non-judgemental, facilitated creative process.

These sessions are a sensitive and confidential safe space for adults to explore, shift and transform through movement.

Lisa’s experience working with dance, movement and holistic practices merge in this workshop as she brings together a sensitive and somatic approach to body-mind-spirit exploration.

Fully utilising her 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.
