Dance/movement therapy (DMT) is defined as the psychotherapeutic use of movement to promote emotional, social, cognitive, and physical integration of the individual, for the purpose of improving health and well-being.
These classes are ideal for those who want to get started with dance therapy. The purpose of these classes is to obtain body awareness, relieve stress and at the same time exercise every muscle in the body. We learn about breathing techniques to liberate muscular tension and to relieve emotional stress as well. The class is divided into 40 minutes of stretching (focusing on posture and alignment) and 20 minutes of relaxation techniques. This class is perfect to start the day with energy and peace of mind or to finish a long day and improve your quality of sleep.
In this course we explore diverse forms of movement, feeling the music and letting go to feel the freedom of movement. With simple exercises as a guide we learn to connect with ourselves to be able to express different emotions and sensations. This course becomes therapeutic and beneficial to our mental and physical health since we achieve with practice the ability of expressing supressed emotions (past or current) that we sometimes don’t find the words for to express verbally.
