Moving with Body, Earth and Sky

An Outdoor Infant Movement Development Introductory Workshop – 17 & 18 July 2021


Explore early infant movement development patterns in the natural landscape, feeling earth and ground as well as the inspiration of the air and sky.

Spend a weekend being introduced to the movement that we all go through and that form the foundation to our development. Experience the evolutionary stages that begin in utero, support our birth and develop in complexity during the first year of life.

Have a taste of the IBMT approach to somatic movement as an introduction to the material that will be covered on the Infant Movement Development Module that starts in September 2021. This module marks the beginning of the next UK Diploma programme of this ISMETA approved training programme in Integrative Bodywork & Movement Therapy.


  • Work in a Quiet Rural Location.
  • Large, private outdoor playing field space, surrounded by trees and rolling Devon hills.
  • Large Hall available with underfloor heating as a backup space.

The day will include movement, mark making, writing and sharing.
