Tuning Moving Meditations
In a perpetual dance, your energy flows within and around your body responding to your moves, emotions and thoughts. Like a musical instrument you can consciously choose what you are Tuning in, to develop your well-being. Starting with a Tai Chi style warm-up, you will be invited to practice positive affirmations with gentle moving meditations. Tuning more of who you are, dance fully present in your body!
