Workshops weaving elements of Somatic Movement, Dance Improvisation, Yoga & Bodywork

“The experiment deepens as the body lets us in” John Stirk

Through opening our awareness to the relationship between sensing and perceiving we can discover new movement possibilities and investigate the creative potential of dancing and being together. Guided movement and bodywork explorations will facilitate a supportive environment for each participant to delve into embodied practice and play.

Open to all levels of experience.
