Workshops 2012/2013

Navel radiation, reaching & sensing – Saturday 20th October

The navel is the centre around which our bodies organize whilst in utero. The navel radiation developmental movement pattern plays an integral part in the way all our limbs relate individually & to each other.

Through guided somatic explorations, images, drawing and movement we’ll sense into a personal experience of how it feels to move from the navel.

Allowing the explorations to resonate within us we’ll move on to practice Authentic Movement in dyads and in the Long Circle.

This workshop is open to body oriented practitioners, creative arts therapists, counselors, Yoga/Tai Chi practitioners, and people who are interested in enhancing personal development and creativity through somatic explorations.

Location: NUEVO studio, 12mins walk from central Croydon

Time: from 10.30 to 4.30pm                  Fee: £50

Enquiries & Booking: please email info@embodiedbeing.co.uk
