What is Embodied Movement?

Our bodies get used to the same patterns & the same movements, day after day, we can become unaware and “stuck” in our ways... physically, emotionally and energetically.  This practice is a combination of different conscious movements, moving the body in ways we just don’t get to do with other forms of exercise (even yoga!)

We will explore movements in a fun & dynamic way, a combination of body isolation, dance, martial arts, yoga, mindful exercises & intutive motions from animalistic, to sensual, to childlike & playful flow, dance & find freedom through movement.. a mix of all kinds of crazy, conscious, fun stuff to move in YOUR way, for YOUR body, building connection with our true Self and others.

Learn to bring more awareness to the body, release blockages, heal & prevent injury, become "un-stuck", improve balance, strength & flexibility & fluidity.  Think & move outside the box (in fact, there is no box!)


My Story

Integrating Embodied Movement alongside my yoga practice has literally changed my life, inside & out.  I used to be very stiff in my movements and with a lot of recurring pain.  I have always loved to dance but back then I would look at videos of myself and cringe!  My shoulders were all hunched up, there was no fluidity in my movements and actually I just didn't feel feminine at all.  I was so shy to express myself fully in my movements and this reflected itself as "stuck" energy in my body..


It is not so simple to heal oneself through "dancing it out" - I had to go inside, outside, all sides.. because this was a lot deeper than a physical surface level!


Just as Yoga reflects our lives, so does Dance and so does Movement.  By moving and bringing more awareness to my body I have overcome ALL this shyness.. unlocked so much of the stiffness in my body and finally I feel feminine, able to embrace my sensuality with a confidence, a knowing, that comes from deep within.  I no longer have these recurring pains and if something does pop up I notice it and find a way to heal it.


So because of this, I want to share all I have learned with others, because I know there are so many out there, stuck in our patterns, looking to make a shift but maybe not sure how to make that first step.. first move.. or first wiggle!

Surrounded by the rolling hills of Andalucia, sits the magical retreat centre of Suryalila.  It really is like a view out of the Alchemist!

Traditionally an old olive farm, it has been regenerated into an eco permaculture site with a beautifully renovated farmhouse along with glamping tents and yurts, offering accomodation types ot suit all budgets.

The property is home to some 200 olive trees and much of the food served is grown on the land itself.


The saltwater pool is perfect for an early morning dip or lounging around in the afternoons, as is the lush green lawn and the many shaded zen areas around the property. 

There's plenty of space to either connect with others or find peace and tranquility with a little lone time if you need.  No matter where you are you are spoilt stunning panoramic views!

All food is lovingly prepared organic vegan & vegetarian and much of which is grown onsite.  Gluten free and dairy free are easily catered for as are other allergies.

Christina is an inspirational teacher and a very calming presence. She created a space that enabled us to bond, share experiences and emotions in a very safe and supported way.  I felt such a sense of bonding and closeness to women I had only known for a very short space of time."
