Movement as Medicine - A Guided Mindfulness Practice of Embodiment
Release, recharge, and rediscover your life force by gifting yourself
90 minutes of intuitive, inspired, mindful movement with a
welcoming group of like-minded humans!
These days, we are all feeling the edges of our capacity to cope. You can
deepen and supercharge your self-care by tapping into the wisdom of your body.
Once a month, join a growing and diverse community of fellow local
humans in discovering the special alchemy that occurs at the intersection
of mindfulness, movement, and music! No dance experience is needed;
come and be welcomed *as you are.*
Each event will begin with brief introductions and setting of intentions
for the session. Then, accompanied by a carefully curated playlist of
inspiring soundscapes, Teresa will facilitate your mindful journey
through breath, sound, body, mind, spirit, and story. Explore your inner
depths through active movement, contemplative stillness, and all that
emerges in-between. Personal awareness and attunement to one’s own
limits, boundaries, and needs throughout the practice is foundational to
mindful dance. Our time will close with a circle gathering with optional
We believe in the currency of communal care, so events offer 3 tiers
