Well-ness

The best way to health is through an eclectic mix of movement techniques. Rudolph Laban

Wellness -Restorative "mindful movement"classes. "all that is important is this one moment in movement. Make the moment important, vital and worth living. Do not let it slip away unnoticed and unused". Rudolph Laban

What I offer:


Wellness and mindful movement classes in Tunbridge Wells in the winter and Ithaca Greece in the Summer. On line classes

What are wellness classes? These classes are a fusion of many movement disciplines, learnt and practiced over many years (thirty plus) personally and some more recent knowledge about movement, endorphins and mindfulness. Wellness; to create a natural flow and find your rhythm in the moment and restore YOUR body. You are already perfect and beautiful, you are already well. Respecting our Psyce(soul) through movement brings growth and healing to our bodies; change happens within as we restore our true self and discover deeper parts of ourselves that may cause blockages in our movement and visa versa. These classes are about finding ease in your movement and every day life; not forcing our bodies to be another's expectation of ourselves or being bullied by Gurus who think they know what is right for you "there is no such thing as a perfect pose only your pose". Main disciplines: Pilates, Feldenkrias, Alexander, Mindufulness, Meditation, Happy (endorphin) cells, restorative Yoga and movement for actors and of course walking for health

Benefits: better breathing, flexibility, core strength, injury prevention, back health,mind-body awareness, increased mobility, healing and relaxation and help for depression - "exercise is medicine for depression, it should be made into a pill", Stephen Ilardi
