Creative dance and mindful movement for health, empowerment and well-being for all ages and abilities
Movement and non-verbal communication are everywhere, like the air we breathe. However, we may not always be aware of the messages we communicate to ourselves and others through posture, gesture, breath patterns, rhythm, use of space, speed of movement and energy/dynamics.
By bringing conscious, compassionate attention to the process of moving, we may discover parts of ourselves that we have not fully experienced or embodied before. We also increase our range of motion, strength , flexibility and stamina in a playful and inspiring way.
By engaging in the creative play of improvised dance and movement we can uncover and experience a much richer variety of qualities, feelings and experiences. This expands our sense of who we are; invites greater acceptance of ourselves and others; and leads to a heightened sense of aliveness. It also provides opportunities to celebrate who we are individually and/or as part of a larger group.
