Conscious Breath & Movement

An emotional detox for your body. Half a day workshop with Griet Verstraete

This workshop is a combination of conscious breathing and embodied movement.
We will connect to our body through movement and open our senses for a full breathing session.

Transformational Breath® is a powerful, self-healing technique that optimizes the full respiratory system and enables an open and connected breathing. It provides integration and transformation of trauma, suppressed thoughts / beliefs and unprocessed emotions. It allows people to (re)connect with their own power and potential for a better physical, emotional and mental well-being.

Open Floor Embodied Movement synthesizes the universal wisdom that underlies all movement practices. Breath, freedom, awareness, connection to others, self-expression, creativity, emotional fluidity, mindfulness, community, meditation – these and more can be found on the Open Floor.
Open Floor feeds all our hungers: through dance we explore connection to ourselves and others, to community and to spirit. And breathing is the starting point.

As human beings we are born into bodies that travel fluidly through an infinite range of movement and feeling. Over time, through physical and emotional injury, cultural messages, age and sedentary habits, our movement expression gets narrower and narrower. On the Open Floor, we use dance as a physical meditation practice to reclaim our lost embodiment, to move us from fixed to fluid, from habit to choice to creative possibility. On the Open Floor we bring a mindful, embodied movement to our lives as human beings.
