Life and responsibilities can hold us back from experiencing the joys in life, taking over our body and our mind’s fundamental needs, blocking our creativity, silencing our voice and entombing our faith. This can bring forth self-sabotaging barriers that disrupt our peace of mind, our sense of balance and our self-confidence, hindering our decisions and ability to follow our dreams.
More than just asana-yoga mind and movement Medicine is a hypnotic and sensory-awakening self-exploration through the fluid and spiral movement, expressive vocal and breath freedom technique.
