To Realign: Open Floor Movement Practice

5-day workshop at Esalen with Andrea Juhan

It is easy in this big bad beautiful world to be thrown off, distracted, or so overwhelmed we can’t feel ourselves. Most of us need concerted focus, inspiration, and support to engage in the deep listening of the inner workings of our own body and being.

Join Andrea Juhan, co-founder of Open Floor International, LMFT, and returning Esalen faculty member, for this stunning week of returning home to yourself through intentional movement.

To reconnect, to reimagine, to remember, to recharge, to re-access. The prefix “re-” points to circling back to something known or held as valuable before.

In movement practice, the dance of ‘circling back’ can be poignant and illuminating. To realign with something essential in ourselves is vital to living our own values and gifts. The movements of returning are known to us, and the practice and art of doing so vitalizes and aligns us with our core selves.  

If there is to be a reinvention or a recommitment to something we have been with before, we need to know what we are capable of now, in 2022, at whatever age we are, and in whatever state of health we find ourselves in. A time of retreat and the focused play of embodiment practice invites us into re-evaluation and renewal.

During this week together, we will play with these methods.

  • Movement / Dance
  • Impact / Embodiment
  • Inquiry
  • Mindfulness
  • Group process for the purpose of support

Open Floor Movement Practice is mindful movement and can be done at any level of fitness. Please wear comfortable flowing clothing to support your experience.
