‘Moving body is a living body’

Creative movement therapy is the psycho-therapeutic use of movement as a process which furthers the emotional and physical integration of the individual. Expressive Movement Therapy will explore our unique inner dance and self-expression.


‘Creative Movement therapy’ is a form of expressive therapy which uses the human body’s natural movements to achieve a balance between emotional, cognitive, social and physical facets in individuals. Eventually, participants evolve a strong, personal movement language to enhance their holistic growth leading to healthier functioning.

Movement experiences will be interspersed with verbal dialogues to expand and enrich one’s discoveries & introspection. The workshop will utilize elements from movement therapy & creative dance to unlock our capacity to express and communicate better while building and strengthening our body’s relation to space, time, people & energies.

Eventually, we will evolve a strong, personal movement language to enhance our holistic growth leading to a healthier functioning. It will help us in experiencing enhanced creativity, problem-solving skills, and renewed capacity for introspection and exploration. We will emerge equipped for resonant and fruitful daily interactions, as well as the ability to use movement activities & games to enhance our own journey of personal and creative exploration.


Workshop Space enough to accommodate 25 people, music system, art materials like chart paper, crayons etc.

    Shivani is a very warm and sensitive individual. She immediately makes you feel welcome and helps create a safe space for creative exploration. It comes from an innate desire to connect to people at a personal level and from a desire to spread sunshine around her.
