‘Professional movement class aims to facilitate a space in which participants are encouraged to work with their holistic self, so whatever is going on at that moment: pain, pleasure, worries, joys, physically and mentally. I work collaboratively with the participants and together we create a safe space in which we can situate ourselves and move from our interiors. We work with the bodies we have on that particular day and we welcome our entire selves. We start with guided introspective body scans and imagination based visualisations before moving into improvisation. It’s all about creating a sense of safety; a space that facilitates creativity, risks and play. ‘
