WHAT IS FIRM FEET?
Firm Feet is an Open Movement active meditation in a warm, lowly-lit, atmospheric and calming environment. There is nothing to learn or follow, it is simply a space to dance. Nobody is watching you. There is no judgement and no right or wrong. You are invited to move in your own space, barefoot, with closed or with lowered eyes. In darkness or with closed eyes, there is no visual stimulation, which allows us to drop deeper into meditation, find our natural rhythm and let go of the mind.
As we work on our bodies we are able to focus on a balanced mental and physical well being. Movement is a crucial stage of healing and personal development. People often come away feeling reformed, with a sense of liberation, purpose and self empowerment. Firm Feet sessions focus on the self and can be part of your regular meditation practice.
LOST IN MUSIC
Dance is used creatively, therapeutically and recreationally to help let go of things we no longer want or need. You often hear people comment about how they are going to ‘lose it on the dance floor’ or ‘get lost in the music’. Each session will feature a carefully selected playlist designed and chosen to tap into different moods and emotions to enable catharsis to create freedom of the body and mind. Focusing on deep electronic, experimental, drumming, ambient and uplifting music from every corner of the globe. In open movement, you can reach euphoric highs with just the use of music, breath and your body. It’s an exhilarating experience as you release serotonin and endorphins and a gentle low impact cardiovascular exercise.
WHAT TO EXPECT?
