*** Please note this session has been moved from 5th to 12th April! ***
Joy in Movement is to help create a safe and powerful space for people to express themselves freely and authentically through non-verbal movement. This authentic expression creates the potential to experience a variety of joyful states from ecstatic joy to profound stillness. Most importantly to relax, enjoy, and celebrate life here on earth in a life-affirming, joyful, easy, naughty, playful, healthy, daring, delightful, and genuine, loving-to-our-whole-selves kind of way!!
Let’s use the power of movement to explore our Self and our Joy, even further, and integrate these discoveries deeply in our body and our hearts!
***What to expect?***
Within a supportive and nurturing environment Individuals will be facilitated to engage in a structure that will enable them to begin to discover their own movement that brings joy and happiness. Participants will have the opportunity to discover the ways in which, movement and expression can help and support us in our everyday life through connecting with joy.
Movement will take place through the circle, in pairs and in your own space.
Joy in Movement is about:
- Feeling more confident.
- Relaxing and learning to let go.
- Appreciating how stress, tension and anxiety can affect our physical well being.
- Receive support to interact and move with others within a safe environment.
- Appreciate the importance of our physical health and well being.
- Discover how we can simply feel better when we are engaging in movement that brings fun and joy into our lives.
- Experiment with new ideas and materials in the absence of any pressure to do so.
***Who can attend?***
Joy in Movement is for anyone who is interested in bringing greater Joy into their life. No dance or movement experience is necessary, just simply a willingness to move.
To make the most of the workshops please dress comfortably, we normally dance in bare feet although if you need shoes please wear a soft sole. Bring along water and if you feel like it maybe a scarf, blanket or anything that may offer comfort if we are lying down in stillness.
Cost: £6 per session, pay at door
