Activities at Atsitsa Bay, Greece

Movement Medicine Dance with Jo Hardy

Sat 17 - Sat 24 Sep 2022

Movement Medicine Dance

We are all born with the freedom to dance. During this course we will learn to listen to our body, and to surrender bit by bit to its unique dance. We will dance to gently wake up to our creativity, to love, power, ecstasy, acceptance, playfulness and sensuality. We will discover our body loves to dance and find ourselves making moves we never knew we could make. There will be space for sharing experiences, massage, writing, meditations, visualization, and laughter. A great sense of support and connection opens as we witness, and are touched by each other. 

No previous dance experience is required.

Community Dance - drop-in

A drop-in Community Dance session is loosely base on the 5 Rhythms and has a focus on fun and play. It is a very community-building event and can have any number of themes depending on the needs at the time. e.g. it can be high energy and full on, or relaxing gentle and integrating.

Early Morning Movement - Wake up the Body

We will greet the day by welcoming our body, breath and feelings with a period of dance movement followed by a guided mindfulness meditation. We will emerge refreshed and ready for the day!

Morning Meditation - Mindfulness and Presence

Mindfulness meditation is increasingly popular and especially good for stress reduction and helping you to relax more deeply into your body.
