About the event

This workshop event allows you to get away from your 'thinking brain' and into your body, with a series of fun and creative movement games and exercises. From simple starting points, we'll let our imaginations flow & collaborate with fellow participants to explore playful ways of moving and telling a story.

Open to all levels of ability – no movement or dance experience required! From complete beginners in either movement exploration or mindfulness, looking to try something new or for those with more experience looking to explore & play.

The workshop lasts 2 hours and includes:

  • Introduction and warm-up
  • Exploring mindfulness through movement
  • Freedom to explore creative expression without worrying about outcomes
  • Creative movement games to connect with others in a playful way
  • A Pride month inspired playlist with altpop and indie folk music to accompany the workshop
  • Idea generation and physical expression (now in a relaxed and playful headspace, in the second half of the session, we will be more ready to create & collaborate)
  • Creating a short physical theatre piece inspired by our discoveries together at the end

What to expect from the workshop event Movement, Mindfulness and Playful Fun:

**A relaxed and supportive environment

**Movement approaches to mindfulness: discover the peace and mental well-being that come from mindful movement.

**Joy of setting free your imagination and physical expression

**Meet new friends and connect with fellow participants and a special piece will be created through the process.
