About this event

This 6 week course is a place to RECHARGE YOU through weaving of somatic practice, polyvagal exercises, free movement, nature’s teachings, simple compassionate guidance, inspiring music and authentic connection in community.

Embodiment website

It is so important to pause, dance and recharge particularly in these unique times where there is so much change, noise, conflicting opinions and environments of distress. This is a space to exhale, shake off and tune into the deeper sanity of nature's rhythms.

This is all about meeting these times resourced and self connected, rather than from a self protective posture. You will be given simple, short practices to tone your nervous system (like toning muscles) towards empowered relaxation through the lens of the Polyvagal perspective of Deb Dana and Dr. Porges.

The vibrant inspiration and alongsideness of a small community to explore the power of practice

The power of practice will be woven through this 6 week journey with a daily challenge to dance together everyday or solo in your own time to really take ownership of your innate capacity for living these times as a dancer.

Ancient breathing techniques that can have a profound effect on self regulation that are simple to learn
