Dance Healing is a somatic based expressive movement class designed to invite people of all physical abilities and experiences into a more authentic connection with themselves and others.
This class invites you to be where you are. Through integrating meditation, movement fundamentals and dance/movement therapy tools, we discover the simple yet profound power of listening to our bodies without judgement.
Reclaim the wisdom of our body-heart-mind by moving into our presence rather than resist it. By witnessing ourselves and others in our authenticity with non-judgement, we feel empowered and renewed.
Take home new awareness and tools to re-align your body-heart-mind and bring more harmony and grounding to your life.

Rooted in the philosophy of dance as a non-judgmental gateway to connect authentically to ourselves and others Dance Healing invites movers of all backgrounds to build their dance toolset in support of personal agency and creative expression through the body. Class includes somatic embodiment practices, movement fundamentals and guided improvisations that build into exploratory partner and group work. As an open level, each class will be adapted to those present. Inclusive to people of all physical bodies and backgrounds.
You are a resilient and creative creature. In this outdoor series, we will attune to our body wisdom and explore our intimate connection with nature. By integrating embodied consciousness with dance and dance/movement therapy techniques, we will practice listening to what emerges within ourselves without judgement. By moving our presence with mindfulness and creativity we can integrate the lessons our body has to show us. Restore your connection to your authentic self and bring home tools to continue your path with new awareness and support.
. . . Sunday, June 17 — Balance
Within nature there is inherently chaos. We often avoid chaos in an attempt to control what we know. By gently surrendering into spaces unknown, we may explore gently moving into the energy of chaos and restoring a more authentic sense of balance.
. . . Sunday, July 15 — Boundaries
By practicing being at home in ourselves, we can feel when we leave our home or disconnect from our bodies. This workshop explores elements of breath and shape to sense our energetic and body boundaries. With this awareness we gain agency to choose when we want to let things or energies wash through us, or when it serves us to have a clear boundary.
. . . Sunday, August 12 — Bounty
How is your body and life abundant? This is a season to enjoy the fruits of our harvest and en-joy being. By gently listening to spaces that do not feel seen in our bodies, we will invite new patterns of awareness and explore moving with our wholeness. Where attention goes, energy flows, and we can invite more positive energy to your being and path.
