From a deep listening to your body follow the internal movement impulses which organically arise. Being open to the physical sensations, emotions, images and thoughts which may emerge, move through the spacial levels of upright, sitting/animal and lying. These studio Body and Soul  sessions are explored through spontaneous movement, self-touch, drawing and word. Focus is given to the movers’ relationship with the earth and body systems such as the bones, muscles and organs.

Participants’ Comments:

Sessions are alternative, affirming, creative, nurturing, and healing. Jenny Grey

Wow! Would you believe it! I found myself moving freely and fluidly around the floor both on my feet and rolling, aches and pains forgotten! My lower body movement at the start of the workshop, had been stiff and stilted, my legs somehow not wanting to travel across the room. John Fullwood

My relationship with the garden, and they way I move whilst tending it, is shifting and deepening. I’m realizing the possibility of learning to dance with it, to be more open to the earth’s support as I work and focus less on results. Thank you for creating the space for these realizations to germinate. Lesley Davies

I often reflect on the extraordinary movement sessions and the richness of experience they provided. Shelagh Todd

I appreciate the ‘held’ space, the safety, trust, respect, honesty in which we worked and shared. Helen Goodman-Payne
