“DANCE FIRST.  THINK LATER”

Movement Medicine is a dance practice, and an awareness practice. It invites us to dance deep into the experience of our own bodies. You need no prior experience, only a desire to dance and connect with your own wisdom and wildness. In movement we can learn to be inspired by the elements around us and within us, the Earth, the Water, the Air and Fire. Movement Medicine keeps bringing us back to the dancers that we are, and allows us to tap into the wisdom of our own bodies.

Each person is a dancer. Our bodies, even in stillness are dancing with life. The breath in and out of our lungs. The blood pumping round our bodies. Eating, sleeping, digesting… all of it is a dance with all of creation. And through Conscious Dance we can become more profoundly connected with Nature and with our own true nature.

Ya’Acov and Susannah Darling Khan are the founders of Movement Medicine. I have been studying and dancing with them since 1999.  They are inspiring, encouraging and profoundly kind teachers, and my teaching has been deeply influenced by them.

  • They inspire me to love who I am right now and to become all I can be. And the dance can inspire you to love who you are right now and become all you can be.
  • They have encouraged me to step more deeply into faith in myself and in the whole of creation. The dance can encourage you to step into a deeper faith in yourself and your connection with all that is.
  • They have been profoundly kind to me in all sorts of journeys and challenges. The dance gives us tools and processes to grow our own kindness to ourselves, whatever life throws at us.

Movement Medicine in Edinburgh, this week of the solstice:
Week beginning 17th June
Thursday 7.30 - 9pm Bernadeta Zyla is teaching in St Stephen's Stockbridge Community Centre, St Stephens Street (at bottom of St Vincent St)
Friday 7.30 - 9.30 Catherine Wright is teaching in Stockbridge House,
Cheyne St., EH4 1JB

This Friday's class we will honour the solstice. The Summer Solstice is the time when light energy is at its longest and most powerful in our Northern Hemisphere. It is a moment to lift up our hearts and feel our own fullness. It is also a moment to look outwards, and to remember that our personal wellbeing is connected to the wellbeing of the whole planet.

Akram Khan
Sky Arts posed one very pressing question to Akram: Why do we dance? To respond to this, Akram is taking us on a five-chapter journey to investigate this burning question and results are remarkable. The first episode of Why Do We Dance? airs on a week from today, on Sky Arts at 10pm.
