This retreat will take an embodied approach to the traditional Buddhist practice of the Brahma Viharas – the cultivation of loving kindness, compassion, joyful resonance and equanimity.
I have been dancing most of my life. I trained in classical ballet and later as a 5Rhythms teacher (2001) and an Open Floor teacher (2017). I remain passionately curious about movement practice and consider myself a movement practitioner first and foremost.
I co-created the mentoring programme for the Open Floor teacher training programme alongside being a mentor for students and a working member of Open Floor.
I have been meditating for 25 years and as well as being a movement teacher I am qualified to teach Mindfulness after training with Tara Brach and Jack Kornfield. Most recently I have been teaching retreats combining trauma informed Mindfulness, Open Floor movement practice, Inquiry and art.
I consider all my colleagues and students as my teachers - they each move and articulate the teachings in such a different way which keeps me endlessly curious and on the dance floors of more experienced and newer teachers. I consider myself so blessed to have met and worked so extensively with Gabrielle Roth in her lifetime , and with Kathy Altman, Lori Salzburg, and Andrea Juhan and their team of amazing teachers.
