Wild Moves is a series of outdoor mindful movement events where people gather together to dance outside in areas of outstanding natural beauty such as down on the beach or out amidst the redwoods.
We use "silent disco" style headsets to deliver our outdoor dance experiences; the sessions are gently guided through the headsets, letting us find the freedom of moving together in areas of wild nature- with no nasty noise pollution to the surrounding environment.
Wild Moves events offer a free form dance practice, so all you need is the willingness to follow your own feet! There are no steps to learn and nothing to get right. No previous experience is necessary- you are warmly welcome to join exactly as you are.
We use the dance is a potent movement-based mindfulness practice. It’s a great way to enjoy ourselves, to exercise and to meditate- all in the same moment! Dancing in this way not only increase our physical agility and fitness; it also increases our authenticity, our emotional awarenes and our effectiveness in the wider world as we become more embodied. There is potency in being present; our dance practice supports us to keep coming back to being here, now.
When we dance outdoors we feel connected: to ourselves, to the others that come together to dance and to the wider world around us. Compassion and community grows. When we are outdoors our vision get wider, we relax and receive more, we becoming open to greater intuition and increased insight. There is no doubt that nature nurtures us.
Wild Moves events are facilitated by accredited 5 Rhythms teacher, mindful movement guide and accomplished dance producer Tess Howell, whom has been running these highly popular events world-wide since 2012.
Tess leads these events with warmth, vitality, humour and depth; skilfully using the dance to guide us back towards what matters most in life.
