indicating state, condition, action, process, or result: motion, notion, emotion  


(Mo)tion is a two day opportunity to dive into the movement perspective - ideas and concepts put into practice in the form of tools, physical tasks, riddles, play and structured materials.   

This seminar will introduce participants from all levels of exposure to different forms of practice and thinking on movement, physicality and the body with reflections into our lives and being.   

Movement is now recognised as the most potent force in developing our brains, bodies and awareness.

No prior experience with any form of physical practice is required. The materials are constructed in a way that will challenge all levels.
