MAT MOVEMENT & BODY TALK                       SESSIONS

Journey into your living body and experience the profound support of the earth either on a mat or chair. The sessions offer a holding space for participants with restricted mobility and long-term illnesses such as asthma, depression and neurological conditions.  Participants discover how to help themselves  through gentle movement that develops somatic awareness and draws on the numerous bodily resources like the respiratory, circulatory, digestive and nervous systems. Here you can embrace a deeper sense of self and open up to feelings of ease and comfort. The Monday (Online) and Wednesday Mat Movement hourly sessions flow through a variety of levels from standing to lying and are influenced by Michelle’s practice of Yoga, Shiatsu, Qi Gong and Feldenkrais. The Friday Body Talk two hour sessions are explored mainly at floor (chair/sofa) level and are rich in experiential anatomy. Anatomical support material is provided and time is given for reflective responses in the form of drawing, making and writing.

Participants’ Comments:

The simple movements make me feel so calm and relaxed. It is amazing how I can do things, that before I started I couldn’t do at all. Mary Chaplin

The variety…each session is different. Appreciate your personal consideration of us all.Valerie Hillebrandt

I just wanted to say thank you. It may not seem much, but being able to stand up without support, has given me loads of confidence. I used to be terrified of falling in case I couldn’t get up. I am enjoying the movement session so much and I am really feeling a difference in my mobility. I am also feeling a great sense of achievement. People have noticed that I am looking better. L.B.
