Trauma informed Somatic CPD Trainings,

& Somatic Movement and Arts Retreats in Ibiza

Still Flowing is a Trauma informed Somatic, Meditative, Therapeutic Approach to Yoga, Movement, Arts and Dance. I offer a range of workshops, trainings, retreats and programmes both online and in person. All the programmes ultimately are about healing, transformation and creative expression. This somatic & contemplative approach fosters regulation at the level of the nervous system building resource, capacity, and empowerment. An embodied reciprocity with the natural world facilitates these processes, This work cultivates empathy, bringing us closer to an interconnected place within ourselves, in relationship to others, the earth and the world.

Gemma Mallol is Dance and Movement Researcher, currently undertaking a Research Master’s in Dance (Somatic and Butoh Dance focus) at Plymouth University. She is a teacher trainer and has been teaching Yoga, Mindfulness and Somatics in varying contexts for a period of 23 years. She is a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner (Body Orientated Trauma Therapist) and uses her knowledge of the nervous system and trauma informed practice to create inclusive, safe spaces where participants can explore themselves authentically through embodiment, dance and movement as the ground for further creative processes to be unlocked.

The Elemental Body Somatic CPD Training offers a bridge for yoga and movement teachers / practitioners, dancers, creatives and therapists to enter the wold of Somatics; a multi-faceted CPD of embodied practices that foreground the connection to and the expression of the inner body in movement and its relation to nature and the elements. This CPD is an empirically based somatic, therapeutic approach to movement that utilises a creative and expressive approach informed by nature to engage the body, mind, and spirit in order to transform stress and suffering and trauma.

Somatics has therapeutic, creative and performative aspects characterised by a fluid expression of form that can shapeshift to embrace all ages, abilities, shapes, colours, genders, sexualities, disabilities, and neuro diversities.

This is a multi-sited exploration where we will visit a range of site to move in, and where participants get to see, feel, and experience in a variety of elemental Ibiza landscapes. We will explore how the ancestral wisdom of the elements can provide a safe container and a stable foundation from which to open doorways into the subconscious realm, where we can excavate body memories, access deep dreams, and reveal transformative insights that can be further developed in the afternoon painting sessions with Romanie Sanchez a highly accomplished surrealist painter and fun, process orientated art teacher who lives and works in Ibiza..

During this five-day intensive, Gemma’s multi sited morning explorations in the elemental body, within the raw, rugged terrain of Ibiza, will cultivate an embodied field of creativity which will be developed further in the afternoons with artist, puppet-maker and storyteller Joanna Hruby. Through their ongoing exploration of the Ibizan landscapes, participants will learn how to give physical form to a puppet-mask being, using cardboard sculpture and papier-mâché, via crafting and adorning. This embodied, creative process will culminate in a eco somatic ritual honouring the inter-relatedness of our body and the earth body, and as a gesture of reciprocity and giving back to the the land of Ibiza.
