Sunflow/therapeutic movement 

"Movement has the capacity to take us to the home of the soul, the world within for which we have no name. Movement reaches our deepest nature, and dance creatively expresses it. Through dance, we gain new insights into the mystery of our lives. When brought forth from the inside and forged by the desire to create personal change, dance has the profound power to heal the body, psyche and soul" - Anna Halprin.

SEE SUNFLOW IN

I developed Sunflow to combine all the different ways that we can move the body in one space... Once we break out of our boxed ways of moving, linear, from A to B, being told how to move as opposed to listening to the sensations of our body, we can integrate that into our lives, strengthen our intuition. Release blockages that we store in our body, and smooth out the nervous system.

Alongside my professional dance career, I became a Vinyasa flow and restorative yoga teacher, on a journey that brought 'Sunflow' into existence.


Sunflow combines yoga and dance, structure and flow, softness with strength; it explores the balance between dynamic and non-resistant ways of moving, with meditation and breath. It helps to alleviate the pressures modern life can have on the body, releasing physical tension and blockages stored in the body and calms the mind, building awareness of sensation and intuition. Each session is guided and structured so the individual can relax into the movements.

 

This work is suitable for everyone, there is no way you can go wrong; Sunflow bridges different fields, it's presentation is inclusive.

 In my workshops I blend dynamic movements with stillness and softness; yoga sequences with freedom of movement. The class is guided to support the individual’s unique flow. The focus is somatic, guided by sensation, this helps to train our default reactions to come from natural bodily wisdom as opposed to an overly rational mind. By guiding the focus of the imagination, and using my body for each person to mirror in their own unique way, it encourages the nervous system to relax, release tension patterns into flow and inspire a positive feeling in the body. Sensitivity is heightened and trauma that is stored in the body is released.

This movement contrasted with meditation and stillness creates an extremely effective resource for increased well-being. 

A session could be purely somatic focused (movement class), or I introduce different themes/concepts which require deeper exploration. Sometimes in collaboration with other practitioners, and/or using other techniques. Examples of themes:

  • Reflection and letting go

  • Aligning actions with values

  • Manifesting Intention setting

  • Embodying sexual energy

  • Dancing your shadow...etc.

 

Music plays an important role, and the playlist is carefully selected to synchronize with the intention of the movement, whilst providing inspiration and groove! 

 

I have combined a variety of qualities from different training's, travels, life's learning's and experiences to create a class that is unique to me. There is a framework behind the freedom. A key concept to consider in all aspects of life.
