Classes and Groups

Do you value your yoga or meditation practice, (or wish you had one!) but you also wish you could connect more intuitively with the emergent intelligence within your body, as it is?

‘When I first entered the beautiful studio for Mari’s session, I did not know what to expect… for hours afterwards I felt I had gone deep into my bodymind and I hold deep appreciation for both the journey and the facilitator.  I recommend Mari and the journey!’  ~ SJ, Author, Reiki and Massage Therapist

Honing your ability to tune into the wisdom of your body for guidance in everyday life is as important for your wellbeing as eating, sleep and exercise. The average over-stimulating pressurised life-style causes our bodies to feel overwhelmed and shut down our sensitivity, which means that we don’t know when to stop until we feel pain or get ill.

This work is supporting the changes in my life enabling the integration of these changes in myself at a deep level. ~ PT, Counsellor

How about joining a regular class in which you know that every week you will take time to rediscover your sensitivity in a practice that honours your body’s sensations and movement impulses? Instead of a structure which teaches postures and mantras, the structure is a map to guide you into the feeling senses of your body and follow the movement impulses from your nervous system and living tissues! You will recognise your unique authentic cycles of movement and rest, allowing your nervous system to gently unwind, take space to tell you how you are and how to relate to yourself in each moment with curiosity, kindness, appreciation, and sometimes awe!

This is how to regain connection to your embodied source of wisdom and the confidence of your own embodied uniqueness and authority.

What is your body’s wisdom? As Mary Oliver wrote: ‘let the soft animal of your body love what it loves’… This is the wisdom: it is how we know what we love, what is too much or too little, what nourishes and what stresses us. Your body knows these things within the detail of your physical being: your nervous system and your cells. The sensations and the rhythms of your physical body can contribute to our ways of living, guide us and challenge us to really pay attention to what matters to us.

“I found myself seeing my bones and behaving as a cell. My movements were totally led from a sensing impulse not a thought and movements were strong and dynamic at the same time as being effortless and DEEPLY cleansing and nourishing. I’ll be back.” – CO, Mother and Entrepreneur

What previous workshop participants have said:

“When I first entered the beautiful studio for Mari’s session, I did not know what to expect.  What happened was a journey of authentic movement which involved heightened consciousness of my own being (I think that is what Mari would call ‘somatic movement’) gently and wonderfully facilitated by Mari.  It was also a safe space, with permission and encouragement to completely be and honor oneself.  Upon its completion and for hours afterwards, I felt I had gone deep into my bodymind and I hold deep appreciation for both the journey and the facilitator.  I recommend Mari and the journey!’  ~ SJ, Author and Healer

‘Through journeying with Mari’s ‘Finding home in your body’ work I have been opened to healing, presence and peace. In her facilitating I find gentleness, depth and potency and wish that everyone could experience this great way of awakening to our innate inner wisdom.’ ~ EK, Voice, Yoga and Movement Medicine Facilitator.

I experience Mari’s Somatic Movement as an opportunity to go beyond the knowing of my mind and into the knowing of my body. Mari creates a peaceful space in which I can connect and be with my embodied experience. This work is supporting the changes in my life enabling the integration of these changes in myself at a deep level. ~ PT, Counsellor

The space was very well held, in an informal and supportive manner, allowing me to go deep into myself in a relaxed and personal way. It has helped me contact internal structures and constructs deeply. ~ NC, Storyteller, Mens Transformation Facilitator, Elder.
