Physical and mental health are intrinsically related. How we are in our mind is reflected in and affects our body and how we are in our body affects how we are in our mind. When we hold our breath because we feel fearful or anxious, we increasingly begin to feel anxious which can then lead to feelings of panic. Food, exercise, and sleep, among other things, also affect our emotional and mental well being. Emotional holding, trauma, and how our bodies hold our stories can take a toll and create mental dis-ease and chronic patterns often lead to disease.

Movement explorations can increase body awareness, release stuck emotions, and create more fluidity in movement and self expression.
