NVC Movement and Dance

The way we move and dance together influences the way we connect, feel and communicate in our lives.

Authenticity comes when your body, mind, and soul are singing the same song.

Bring awareness to the way you dance with life

I include authentic movement and conscious dance into some NVC trainings and well-being events.

It is important to understand that dance isn’t the primary focus of my work; rather, it serves as a medium that aids us in reconnecting with ourselves and others.

Your body is an essential aspect of who you are and how you show up in the world.

In our busy lives, we can become cut off from feeling the fullness of life.

Movement and dance have the power to restore your natural instinct for care, contact, creativity and play. Scientifically, dancing is proven to boost happiness, it releases mood-lifting dopamine and endorphins and lowers stress hormones like cortisol – promoting relaxation.

Dance heightens emotional intelligence.

While some people love to dance, others might feel embarrassed, saying things like “I can’t dance, I have no rhythm.” Interestingly, both groups often feel the benefits of Conscious Dance. There are no specific steps to learn or a right or wrong way to do it. We move to diverse world music, exploring various tempos and rhythms.

I utilize Laban efforts and Toro aspects to enrich our movement vocabulary. You will be invited to connect with qualities of empowerment and sensitivity through dialogue dances and generative postures and to explore, your relationship with space, balance, flow, strength, lightness, activity and stillness, centring – grounding for effective nervous system regulation.

Movement meditation.

Through involvement in Authentic movement, you’ll nurture mindful presence with your inner witness, developing a kinaesthetic language that intertwines movement with your life experience. This heightened awareness can open you up to more choice about how you respond to the present instead of reacting to past conditioning. It supports a life well lived through embodied experiences and empathic presence.

Connecting with your body’s natural sensing system offers an opportunity for your mind, body, and soul to synch!

‘There is more wisdom in your body than in your deepest philosophies.’

Friedrich Nietzche

Embodiment

Embodiment is not something you think about, it needs to be experienced and practiced.

To be embodied, is to feel more connected to yourself, to nature and to others, to breathe, move, dance, express and sing; to be still and kind to yourself

It’s about feeling comfortable in your own skin.

Embodiment is about tuning into ourselves, with somatic awareness and a curiosity about the way the body moves and the language it speaks – becoming the witness, increasing presence and authentic relating.

My embodiment journey began decades ago, engaging with the practice of Yoga, NLP, NVC, Reiki, Mindfulness, working with High Scope experiences with young children, dancing Gabrielle Roth’s, 5 Rhythms, Chakra Dance and training as a Biodanza teacher.

I co founded the Dance Connection.   system during the Covid-19 Lockdown 2020, with Julia Hope Brightwell, who has continued to develop this system. She leads the Wessex teacher training school and classes in Bridport, Uk. 

I practice the Discipline of Authentic Movement developed by Janet Adler (inspired by the work Mary Starks Whitehouse).
