Movement Medicine is a practice which directs our awareness to our movement, thoughts and feelings, supporting us to get more in touch with who we really are. It is an active and embodied meditation practice, opening the way to deep internal reflection. Through the dance we are invited on a journey of personal empowerment, relationship with community and connection with the creative, universal life force. Ya’Acov and Susannah Darling Khan, founded the School of Movement Medicine, integrating their experience with a lineage of practices such as 5Rhythms, Gestalt Psychotherapy, Family Constellations and shamanism.
Everyone is welcome – whatever your background, culture, age, gender or experience, or whether you think you can dance or not. Movement Medicine offers a safe and supportive space to dance freely, encouraging your true and unique expression. No steps to learn, no right or wrong. An invitation to journey within an immersive environment held with captivating music and clear guidance. A space to creatively engage with whatever is present in your life. Dancing with ourselves and at times with each other, within the safe container we create together.

"Mira has an intuitive understanding of movement and transformational process. She creates a safe, sacred space in which to connect deeply with your own body's wisdom. I have often surprised myself with the energy and insights I've accessed under her attuned guidance. Resistance and inhibitions melt away and I am transported by the evocative music to a place within where I can dance with all my being."
