July 2022 Elemental Body Programme on Zoom

  • Warm Breezes (Summer Body)
  • Friday 8th July – Friday 5th August 2022
  • 5 Consecutive Weeks Fridays 10 – 11.30am (UK Time)
  • Teaching Faculty: Gemma Mallol
  • Cost £75 per cycle

Elemental Body (Warm Breezes) is a deep dive into the the elemental nature of the body. We will be exploring the mystery, movement and stillness of the Summer body through contemplation (Buddhist Insight Meditation), Inner Dance (Butoh inspired) & Somatic Movement and Therapeutic Techniques and Principles. If you would like to explore inner dance and movement, unlock creative energy and expression and dive deep into meditation from a somatic nature based perspective then do come and join this group.

This is a therapeutic session and integrates principles of Peter Levine’s Somatic Experiencing (body orientated trauma healing) working with embodying the elements as a bigger container within which to regulate the nervous system, and as a conscious return to nature through our body which is part of the greater earth body. I work with spacious embodied guidance through somatic movement, inner dance, contemplation, breath, sound, music and the embodied imaginal realms. There is space at the end of each session to develop your own own expressive arts practice and sharing and integration within the group.
