Dancing Freedom explanation

Dancing Freedom is a facilitated movement meditation/conscious dance practice lead by Sophie Bolton, one of Dancing Freedom's global facilitators (www.dancingfreedom.com).  The practice draws upon the five elements, (earth, water, fire, air and ether) to symbolically relate the power of nature to the wisdom of the body.  In each session a theme is offered to create an intention for a personal or collective matter of the heart that the body can move with and gain insight in to. 

Sophie mixes sumptuous and inspiring music from across the board.  With her years of experience as a Yoga Teacher for adults and children with 'special' and 'typical' needs, Dance Facilitator and Conscious DJ, you can expect a non judgemental, down-to-earth and playful space to let go in.

 

Sophie's inspiration to dance

Witnessing the uninterrupted flow of a small child dancing – totally random and totally natural; a pure expression of play gives me inspiration every time I hold a dance meditation session. I have taught yoga asana, meditation and relaxation over the years and have always had, as far back as I can remember, a deep desire to dance/move to music as soul-food. It brings me the greatest pleasure to facilitate Dancing Freedom as a form of meditation and soul nurturing. 

"Thank you so so much for the space you held today, and for the warmth, genuine joy, gentle support and contagious inspiration your poured into it. We benefited hugely as a family and as individuals, it's delicious, thank you xx"

What an experience, it was what many of us busy mums dream of- to dance quietly in our own littles spaces and re claim these hard working body's. My joy of dance thoroughly re-kindled having listened to my body's impulses n mummers openly....my heart opened, my aches diluted- can't wait for next one!!! thank you for creating a safe candle lit space to privately yet together explore these earthly body's we inhabit for this lifetime. A wonderful 2hr dedication and prayer of gratitude to our body's n souls

I felt totally free and able to express myself in every which way. That kind of freedom emerges from a well held and safe space.
