For the last 14 years, Dr Melanie Brierley (PhD) has worked as a dance and health artist, researcher, and trainer at Conscious Bodies. She is a registered somatic movement educator/therapist with the International Somatic Education and Therapy Association (ISMETA) and Churchill Fellow (2014).
On Friday the 22nd of September 2023 (10 am to 11.15 am), Melanie will facilitate ‘Moving, Dancing, and Relaxing’, a new class at the Educational Institute in Arnside.
Who is it for?
This class is suitable for anyone interested in dance and movement for health and wellbeing. Perhaps you’ve enjoyed attending Yoga, Tai Chi, or like to dance with others in a less structured way? Then this is the class for you! The class involves moving in space and some floorwork, but the practice van be adapted to suit your needs. Everyone is welcome.
What will we do?
All ‘Moving, Dancing, and Relaxing’ sessions will follow a specific pathway of movement and dance to help reset, revive, and relax body and mind.
• Through connective movement practices, we will gently ease ourselves into movement.
• We will explore the flow of dance to support inner and outer expression and deeper embodiment and have fun at the same time!
• We will take time to rest, recover, and integrate our movement experiences.
Will I need to bring anything with me?
You will need to bring a yoga mat for the beginning and end of sessions, and you might like to bring a blanket and pillow for the last section of the class.
What should I wear?
Loose and comfortable clothing that you can move in. Some layers would be a good idea and socks for the lie/sit down at the end.
Sign up for the 6 week course (cost: £60 for the 6 weeks) or £12 for a single drop-in session.
