Exploratory movement allows us to create movement sequences from our explorations with our moving bodies rather than simply learning a fixed choreography. In these two hours we will use elements of dance, play and awareness and engage with our bodies to gain insight into our personal narratives and life stories and the ways in which we relate to the space around us and within us.

Classes will draw from practices of dance, and awareness but the emphasis is on getting in touch with an individual quality of movement we each possess. There will be structure but also the freedom to play and explore around it.


Karunya's movement experience includes Bharatanatyam, Indian Contemporary and Latin Dance styles. She is currently training in the Feldenkrais Method, a practice devised by Moshé Feldenkrais that has Awareness through Movement as one of its core components. She also teaches exploratory movement to a group of adults with special needs and conducts Movement Modules for adults.
As a performer, artist, writer, dancer and expressive arts therapist her work is deeply rooted in her belief in the power of the arts as a tool for healing, expression, transformation and engaging with ourselves more deeply and authentically.

Healing minds, one word at a time.
Sanation is an educational organisation that believes that learning starts from within. By breaking through the years of conditioning from mainstream education, we can heal oursleves by unlearning and relearning major ideas we have about the world. Working with art, writing, performance and discussions, the Sanation community aims to change priorities in Education.

Samana Art Movement is an invitation to engage with ourselves more deeply through the arts; to exist in a space of discovery and curiosity, which allows us to sense ourselves from new perspectives. It is a space where different disciplines - visual art, movement, poetry, music, theatre, performance - can meet, connect and inform each other as we meet ourselves. When we let go of the idea that art can only be perfect and aesthetic, we allow ourselves to emerge as our most authentic selves; we gain access to the joy of creating without fear and feel art move through us like breath - a life force.
