MOVEMENT FOR CHANGE combines Personal Effectiveness Coaching with the art of PRESENT-NESS, body awareness practices and expression through free, physical movement to music.
The process of being fully present in your body invites you to recognize your resources, clarify the changes you want to make and put them into action effectively.
This sensitive, fun and creative practice is suitable for all physical abilities.You are encouraged to go at your own pace, to follow how your body wants to and can move.
The non-judgmental group format enables deep connection to all aspects of self: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual, leading to understanding and overall confidence to effectively deal with challenge and change.
WHAT TO EXPECT: Initially one of the aims is to be still, to find that clear place within each of us to be with ourselves, to unwind, let go of tension, release fatigue, thinking, resistance, in order to make room for creativity.
A CAREFREE YET MINDFUL setting for connecting with one’s authentic self, drawing from the Somatic Movement work methodologies of Arianna Economou’s teachings and research, in combination with Personal Effectiveness Coaching for change.
THE SESSION INCLUDES gentle warm-up stretches, body awareness, grounding centering aligning, easy movement within the group dynamics and concludes with exploring and visualizing the outcome you seek through expressive dance improvisation of your own devise.
BENEFITS: Feel good about yourself – explore and build on your resources – gain confidence in managing challenge and change effectively – discover ways to overcome what holds you back – move into the person you want to be.

About Anita Michaelidis
i work with individuals and groups who seek to achieve positive life changes and deal with challenging times. I combine movement practice with personal effectiveness coaching, the integration of which makes change more effective.
The Somatic Movement part of this programme is based on the research work and teachings of Arianna Economou (teacher, performer, somatic embodiment educator). As her student, i draw on information from Arianna’s body work on the intuitive, the autonomous and the creative.
I have extensive experience of how we find deep change, health and individual meaning which has led me to believe in the profound benefits of body-mind-spirit-energy systems.
Furthermore I approach life from a grounded perspective having 27 years experience in production services in the film, television and theatre industries.
As a result I value ways we can approach wellbeing in the moment, moving beyond limiting beliefs and stories, to listen to the body’s wisdom and support ourselves with compassion and awareness.
