This class deepens our connection to the body through conscious movement, breath, touch, sound and imagery. In learning to move from the body's own innate rhythms and impulses, we open to deeper expressivity and vitality. Grounding experience in the moving body dissolves the separation between inner and outer experiencing, allowing us to sense and feel ourselves and others with greater compassion and curiosity.
Paula is a dance artist, choreographer, equestrian, author, movement educator and therapist. Her background includes deep research into theater, somatics, improvisation, film, Deep Listening, Laban Movement Analysis, Body-Mind CenteringⒸ, interspecies relationships, equine studies, Authentic Movement and eco-performance. Much of Josa-Jones's solo work arises from her own experience of being gender non-conforming, and movement explorations of the deeply complex architecture of identity and expression.

She is also a Guild-Certified TTEAM (Tellington Touch Equine Awareness Method) practitioner and a Somatic Experiencing ® practitioner.
