Open Floor Movement Practice is a bold and spirited movement practice sprouting up all over Europe, USA and now Australia. I feel thrilled and privileged to be pioneering Open Floor Movement classes in Melbourne. The emphasis on mindfulness within the movement is truly medicine for our times.
‘Uncover the feelings, sensations and stories that reside in your body. Through conscious movement, conscious breath. So simple and so easily forgotten!’
The moment we step into the dance of life we bring our passions, tensions, joys and aspirations – the full basket of our humanity.
How can we move and include all of this?
On an Open Floor we recognize that we are multidimensional beings, with hard-wired and differing needs: to dance alone, to join together, to reach higher, and for the sacred in us to commune with the vast, sacred space that is all things.
Open Floor is a practice where we mindfully move all of who we are. Supported by layers of music and a fresh, frank sense of enquiry. Asking, how am I now? What’s here? Anchor our selves. Find direction. Add heat, kindness and curiosity. Can I turn my same old feelings and thought patterns inside-out to reveal a new dance?
Can I use movement to bring more space into those fixed joints, fixed ways of being? Stretch my chest, stretch my heart to widen my capacity to receive love?
“The emphasis on mindfulness within the movement is truly medicine for our times.”
