For anyone wanting a sustained period of time to attend to their own movement practice as a resource for professional and personal development.
STRATA is an opportunity, through the art and practice of movement, to get a new perspective on the stories you tell yourself about yourself.
Take five days, moving in or wherever you can near your home, to be curious about your ever-changing self, to interrupt habits, to receive feedback, to appreciate the sheer joy of movement, to embrace the unknown and to allow creativity to emerge from your life experiences.

Cost: £130.00 or by donation
Although the costs of a virtual workshop are significantly lower than usual, there is more work than usual in imagining, preparing and holding the creative process before and during the event.

This is in line with my movement practice where I invite you (and myself) to ‘find our position for dialogue.’

"The degree of stimulus and the depth of reflectiveness I am left with after the completion of the workshop is testimony to the exquisite quality and richness of the work. I can sincerely say I find this work transformational."
