Free Your Dance!
As our presence deepens
our consciousness and agency expands
we dare to go to disowned parts and avoided places inside
unneeded layers flesh off
we let go of control and inner conflict
we become more wholesome and attuned with life's movement
we become more free
This course is an introduction to Constança's life-dance approach - a movement practice that unlocks your physical, emotional and mental bodies, supporting the unfolding of your human evolutionary processes.
It is an invitation to come to your senses and root in the intelligence of your animal nature, which will guide you through a new understanding on the subtleties and power of life's energy and how it is revealed in your bodies and all your relations.
it is simple
the challenge is in keeping it simple

Constança is dedicated to an intense research on life's energetic dynamics and how they are revealed in our bodies. She explored several movement meditation practices with teachers all over Europe, studied Movement-based Expressive Arts Therapy at Tamalpa Institute and Somatic Experiencing with Liana Netto at Associação Brasileira do Trauma. Her home is in Sintra. This land and the immense ocean nearby are an endless source of insight, poetry and remembrance that all we’re here to do is to allow and serve the universal dance as it unfolds.
