Open Floor Movement Practice is a lively, sweaty, full-on dance inquiry.
This body is a rare and precious gift. – Buddha
And for this one precious life, it is our home address. When we use the dance to be fully embodied – physically, emotionally, and mindfully – it simply means being home for the beautiful ride of being alive. It means we’re present for anything and everything: loving, losing, colliding, learning, creating, connecting and feeling. To be embodied is to come to our senses. To show up and learn to stay with our experience whether it’s good or bad – to feel our power and to make things happen in our world.
When we live an embodied life we are fluid, flexible, and free to experience all of the wild and subtle moments that go by, the ones that are heavenly and the ones that drop us to our knees. To be embodied is to arrive at death in peace, free of regret for having missed our life because we weren’t home.
About Jake: I have a profound love for the medicine of movement and dance. I dance to uncover the wisdom of my body, to move from fixed to fluid, to embrace change and become more awake. The dance dares me to show up as I am physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. I honour uniqueness and diversity in my work, and am always seeking to expand my capacity to experience the fullness of humanity. I am an internationally accredited Open Floor Movement Teacher and received a certificate in Integral Leadership whilst living and teaching Open Floor Movement Practice at the Esalen Institute in California, USA. I am a current student of Integrative Psychotherapy and I thrive to inspire others to live an embodied, resourced, heart centred life.
