NB You can also book 2 back-to-back classes together: Yoga Nidra & Sound Healing (6 -7pm) + Movement Meditation (7.15 - 8.30pm). The classes are designed to work synergistically with each other.
The following information is about the Movement Meditation class only.
Move your body, cultivate awareness, awaken energy, inspire creativity, explore, heal and find harmony with how we connect and move through the world with Soul Moves Movement Meditation to live sacred music.
Geeti draws upon more than 35 years of movement meditation experience, weaving together practices and philosophy from the movement arts of Japan (Kiryuho), her training as a Soul Motion conscious dance facilitator and her studies in sound healing and naada yoga.
The practices include both structured and free form movement and sessions are designed to help cultivate ease and confidence in moving alone as well as with others, moving beyond self consciousness and fear into relaxation, trust and flow.
Gyan will be offering soulful and supportive musical accompaniment on flute, guitar, hand pans and keyboards, that helps the body express and move naturally, connecting us with the innate wisdom of our soul and nourishing the body, mind and emotions.

MORE ABOUT KIRYUHO
KIRYUHO is a gentle and transformational moving meditation practice, anchored in the rich traditions of Japan. Awaken vitality (KI), relax into flow (RYU) and harmonise with the natural laws of existence.
Developed in Japan by Master Kajo Tsuboi, this contemporary 'Body Art' is easily accessible to people of all ages and abilities and incorporates the grounding and centring principles of the martial arts, the mindful awareness of meditation and the free flowing feeling of dance.
A key aspect of the practice is the use of the möbius ∞ figure eight movement, which has the powerful effect of restoring balance to our body, mind and spirit by rebalancing the left and right hemispheres of our brains.
As we move in the mobius movement, just like the movement of the galaxies, we are able to attune and reawaken our deepest connection with the rhythms and source of life.
As we harmonise within we are able to cultivate flow and harmony with the world around us. Read more here: www.soulmovesgeeti.com/Kiryuho
