MouvementEnVie is about replacing the physical and emotional strain, effort and tension in your life with a state of ease, peacefulness and poise. The desire to move more easily whether it be in dance, sport or in your daily activities is one interpretation of the title. Another is the idea of moving forward in life by learning from your experiences. Both are interconnected.
Our habitual way of thinking and moving is part of who we are and how we live our lives. However sometimes we encounter problems such as back pain, or we feel frustrated, depressed or have difficulty mastering a technique, MouvementEnvie helps you uncover the source of your problem and avoid going round in circles or settling for a quick fix or some kind of coping strategy.
Practical sessions show you the tools and the process with which you can understand and explore your issues and equips you to make the necessary changes and choices to improve the quality of your life.
The classes and workshops below benefit professionals, teachers, Artists and the general public.
Move with Ease & Freedom
Adult Dance Classes
Alexander Technique & Dance
Individual or group sessions
We all move but seldom question the way we move, our ideas about moving and how it interacts with our lives. Without realising it, we are capable of putting enormous strains on our joints resulting in aches and pains or chronic injury. Luckily it doesn't take much to reverse the situation and learn to move with ease and freedom. After all we were born to do so.
Dance and have fun and you will gain a deeper understanding of how to improve your coordination, flexibility and poise. It has been shown that dance improves memory too. There is musical accompaniment of various styles and the class is designed for you to go at your own pace whether you are a beginner or long time dance enthusiast.
Dancers are very often under pressure to perform well and suffer unforeseen setbacks. Issues such as stage fright or tension related injuries often limit, complicate and even ruin promising careers. This work helps you to overcome such difficulties. Learning how to get to the source of the problem in order to resolve it, is a fascinating journey of self discovery, and learning.
