Movement has been a part of my life from a very young age and remains the foundation of all of my work. Having worked as a dancer, teacher and choreographer since 1985 I continue to be inspired by the mediums of movement and touch, believing they offer an invigorating and intrinsic understanding of the world around us, as well as the world within.
Taking time to move mindfully can be one of the most effective ways to find more ease within your body. Experiencing and witnessing in others the resilience evoked once balance begins to arise...when adaptability and stability harmonise...never fails to amaze and inspire me.
My particular fascination with how each individual discovers greater physical freedom and expression has always underscored my work, leading me to explore and experience a range of approaches. Alongside my work as a dance artist, I am a Franklin Method® Educator, Certified Rolfer™, Rolf Movement™ practitioner, Hanna Somatics Exercise Coach and Scaravelli Inspired Yoga teacher.
Morning Moves | Tuesdays 10-11am
A weekly online session that offers gentle and accessible ways to deepen the felt sense of how we are in each moment and the influence this has on how we move. We will explore simple ways to mobilise and differentiate through the body, experience our relationship to gravity and perception of the space around us, and embody a deeper understanding of our anatomy to support us as we move in day-to-day life. We will explore movements in standing, sitting and lying down, with the invitations and propositions offered open for you to translate in the way that best suits your body. The sessions focus on moving mindfully, with the aim of awakening the body in an easy way…finding the juicy-ness of our joints…letting go of unhelpful movement patterns…and using gravity to give us a lift.
Format of sessions
The sessions will be in a 'follow along' format, where I will move with you in real-time and guide you through each moment. Please note that I will not give any one-to-one feedback, so do adapt what I offer to suit how you feel and what your body needs to feel safe and pain-free. You may join with your video on or off as you prefer. Please wear comfortable clothing, and I suggest bare feet or socks. Prepare and clear your space as much as possible, and have a bottle of water to hand.
Contact me to be on the email list for the zoom links each week. Classes are on a drop-in basis, and you are welcome to join whenever you wish. Get in touch to find out more.
The sessions are on a donation basis with the suggested amount of £7/£8.
