Playful Movement in nature aims to increase wellbeing by being creative in a natural environment.
It’s a chance for you to get energised, and absorbed in a natural environment and leave busy thoughts and concerns behind.
It’s a space to reconnect with your body, others and your surroundings through play, movement, mindful based activity, using your imagination and paying attention to what’s around you.
Discover a new sense of self and relate to your surrounding creatively.
Increase your capacity to be in the present moment and have fun.
Improve your listening skills use a multisensory approach.
Deepen your experience of how creativity and nature contribute to your wellbeing.
The session is usually a mixture of talking, playful movement, sometimes drawing, reflecting and seeing how we can bring these experiences into our daily life.
No experience is needed. Open to 16 years old and plus.
What to bring:
Water, a snack and something to write on (notebook, journal).
Comfortable layers of clothing.
Examples of past workshops run are:
Therapeutic Movement in nature: rediscovering self and place.
& Playful Movement: Explorations in nature.
I have run these by myself or in collaboration with other artists like Emma Forbes of Relational Rituals (Rachel Lyon) at festivals like Ready Steady Grow in Pollockshield, community gardens such Woodlands Community Garden and Urban Roots, the local community at North Kelvin Meadows or private groups.
They have been inspired by Anna Halprin’s expressive arts healing movement work in the natural environment.
Participants have ranged from adults in recovery from substance abuse, to adults and children, adults only.
Each workshop is unique and tailor made to the group.
