These introductory workshops can be taken as a series or individually. Explore movement that comes from the early foundations of our development – the movement that we all go through, and provide the building blocks to all adult movement. Be introduced to some of the psychological and developmental themes that go along with this process. Develop insight into our adult patterns and the potential for new freedom.

Workshops include movement, simple bodywork, drawing and sharing with others.

Open to all who are interested to explore human movement for learning, health and well-being: including Physical Therapists, Bodyworkers, Dancers, Yoga practitioners, Therapists, and those working with babies and young children.  No experience necessary.
