Welcome to Somatic Grooves
Play, explore, dance. Discover Yourself.
Dance and movement has always been a soul calling of mine and I have now taken this passion and combined it with all I have learned throughout my journey. I take knowledge from my teachers and mentors in my studies of dance, Somatic Experiencing, The Feldenkrais Method, and most importantly, my own intuitive knowings that have come to my awareness along the way of doing the work, to create an experience that flows from the deepest part of me. I feel so blessed to be able to share this with others and I look so forward to exploring and learning together.

Somatic Grooves is an awareness based exploration of self through attention and movement. We will embrace curiosity and investigate what we notice about our physical bodies and the internal landscape of ourselves. We will notice our sensations, our physicality, our emotions. We will play in solitude and in connection and notice how this changes our experience. We will play with tools of self regulation that will allow us to "empty our cup" and enable us to be with more of ourselves and contain our experiences with more resiliency. We will travel through space to first learn how we move, so we can then find ways to move with more ease. We will discover how does our physical body propel us or hinder us in movement. We will walk, we will dance, we will go down to the ground and get back up again. We will pause. We will notice and follow our impulse. We will play, and find new ways to move our bodies. We will spend time with and befriend the sensations of our internal landscape and connect to the compass that lies within all of us simply by paying attention to what we notice about our bodies. We will learn how to use this compass to experience life with greater ease and flow and we will leave with a deeper sense of presence and embodiment.
