Training Description

In this training we will explore the states of being moved through the activation of voice, breath and movement. We will discover how they support our creative/artistic process and human development. Being moved means moving and expressing in a state of flow. Everyone knows those moments when the mind becomes the dictator and challenges us with judgments and reasoning. And everyone knows the moment when the mind calms down and allows us to flow freely, improvise, be spontaneous and trust our intuition. What I offer is the practice of surrendering to the intelligence and wisdom of body-mind alignment and its co-creativity potential to find ways into our full creative and emotional expression, self-empowerment, with clear boundaries, flow and awareness. Party and celebration? What is that, really? I suspect that after a period of pandemic, most of us feel that it is important to bring back those moments of inner ones. The practice offers the opportunity to enter into the state of being moved by the power of celebration. It is a practice derived from the Ecstatic Body Floor (online) that Simon Mayer has hosted every Friday since the pandemic began. This practice is also essentially a facilitated dance floor, diving into different forms of celebration and how they move us (joy, sadness, anger, silence, music, coffee...) It's the perfect start to the day. I digest information, discover my personal warm-up or prepare for the day (emotionally, physically and mentally) and get in touch with myself so I am ready to meet others. It is training to stay in touch with what my body needs at that moment.
