In response to my PhD observation and movement analysis research findings, 20-years experience teaching Dance and Movement in Higher and Further Education together with my Dance Movement Psychotherapy training I have created and developed the Move into Balance Framework.
The Move into Balance Framework is used in all my workshops, programmes, courses and my forthcoming Move into Balance Challenge (which forms part of my PhD research) and it’s key aim is to help you find your way to access your ‘Flow state’ with ease.
Being in this state frees us up from self-consciousness and self-talk (which, let’s be honest, is quite often negative!), and so we relax, our creativity expands, we become adaptable and our performance is taken to the next level.
At the heart of the Move into Balance framework lies the intention for you to connect with yourself in a non-judgmental and supportive manner and for your relationship between your body and mind to be brought back into balance.
Balance is the key to achieving the ‘Flow state’.
By allowing your body to express itself, through carefully crafted guided movement meditations you can transform how you feel, adjust your movement and thought patterns and so ‘Move into balance’.
After running hundreds of sessions using the Move into Balance Framework and seeing the resulting benefits in my clients, and experiencing the effects myself, I know now it is all about giving our bodies some space and time to be expressive.
It is about us connecting with our bodies and selves in a kind, non-judgmental way. It is about learning to listen to the cues our body gives us and tapping into the wisdom our body holds. Doing this allows you to
- be balanced (physically and emotionally)
- focus your thoughts,
- have enough energy to work and play afterwards,
- be creative,
- feel healthy, and
- be joyfully productive
And, as my students tell me, it’s also a great “core workout.”
