• Move Your Spirit

    A dance & movement therapy retreat


Come explore your inner rhythm and move to the beat of your heart.
 
Together with certified dance and movement therapist and life coach Julie you will uncover the unique signature movements of your spirit.
 
Improvising dance and movement, you will express (sub)conscious emotions that you may not find the words for. Bypassing the mind, you give your body free range to process anger, sadness,  grief, joy, love and anything in between.
 
You will experience a deep sense of connection, to the core of our being. You’ll be full of energy, eager to celebrate life.
Slide 1

Through a series of 3 one to one sessions, you will experience greater empowerment and self expression. You will feel a sense of release, wholeness and lightness.
 
Dancing is like a washing machine for conscious and subconscious emotions. The sessions offer a safe space for coming clean with the ebb and flow of life. By dancing regularly we avoid getting stuck in repetitive patterns and instead approach life with a fresh outlook.
 
Julie will facilitate your journey through a unique blend of guided meditation, creative movement and intuitive conversation. She draws upon her rich experience in intuitive dance, management consulting, life coaching, family constellations, tarot and yoga.
