Authentic Movement Healing Groups

 for All Genders

Authentic Movement is a practice that needs to be lived in order to be comprehended. In the ongoing groups, though your experience is still individual, we all share the power of being together in community to find healing through movement.

We begin with a rediscovery of your physical self through a series of semi-guided, warmup explorations. 

We then progress to creating a space where you are free. Free to listen to your body, free to follow the guidance of your soul. In this space there are no rules, except those that you create; there is no obligation, except to yourself.

In the group sessions you are the mover and I am the witness, and there is a specific time for movement / stillness with the eyes closed.  After each exploration, there is additional time for the movers to use journaling, drawing, sound, clay, or movement with open eyes to integrate the experience, before we all come together and share in our final circle.

By participating in the group you will be able to find :

  • healing for your inner child

  • release from embodied wounds

  • connection with your authentic needs and desires

Groups are limited to 10 movers.

New members are required to join first an Introductory Workshop. 

Check our Calendar for your next opportunity.

Opening NEW Authentic Movement group:

A new Authentic Movement group will start on Tuesday, November 5 from 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm at a new space, the Bija Yoga Studio. The group will meet for 5 sessions during November and December.

Participants with no experience in Authentic Movement need first to join the Introductory workshop on Tuesday, October 29.

Experience has shown that the major benefits of this practice come when being part of a committed group in which each mover is opening up themselves to a process. That is why your commitment to the entire or part of the cycle is required to be part of the group.

Total cost for the 5 sessions when payed in advance is $275 that is $55 per 2h.

Total cost for 3 sessions when payed in advance is $198 that is $66 per 2h.

Payment plans available for students and old members.

The is also a group on Saturdays from 10:30 -12:30 that will open up for new participants to join on  January 11, 2020 and will meet for 10 sessions until May 16, 2020, on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of each month.

I am very happy to talk briefly over the phone and answer any questions you may have


Authentic Movement has been very freeing for me -

I love the feeling that I can do ANYTHING! I can explore something challenging, or just have fun. Grown-ups need play-time too!
