Body in Movement with Dr Sandra Reeve UKCP, DMP
Dates: 21st-22nd October, 2017
Location: Vilnius, Lithuania
For most of us, our daily movement is something we never notice. Yet our bodies and our movement store memories and habits that affect and condition our whole lives.
This workshop starts from everyday movements: walking, sitting, standing, crawling, lying down, in all sorts of different ways and you are guided to become more aware of the structure of your body as it moves through space.
This gives you a chance to pay attention to the way you move, to identify what is happening within you and outside of you as you move, and to play with ways that you might move differently.
Some examples of movement tasks include exploring:
The central teaching of this workshop is that there is no movement without attitude and no attitude without movement:
This practice cultivates an attitude of curiosity, generosity, and fun. The workshop is open to all, takes place indoors and needs no previous movement experience.
12 CPD hours available.
“There is a clarity and simplicity in Sandra Reeve's teaching that enables even the most desk- and mind-bound of participants to leave behind any habitual sense of physical awkwardness and explore their body in space like a three-year old.”
About Sandra Reeve
I have studied, practised and taught non-stylised, daily-life movement for more than 25 years. For me, our movement is a vocabulary as rich as our spoken one. It can offer us insights into ourselves and our relationships with others; it can reveal unconscious habits and patterns; it can facilitate change in all areas of our lives and it can be a kind of meditation.
Body in Movement is the foundation workshop in my movement teching programme – it draws on Buddhist practice, the work of the internationally-known Indonesian movement artist Suprapto Suryodarmo (Prapto), my training as a Dance Movement Psychotherapist and my PhD at Exeter University on The Ecological Body.
