Dove believes we all benefit from a balance of effort and rest. She integrates mindfulness with movement and encourages a deep awareness of the breath in all of her sessions. She guides her students through movements that support the physical body and carries the body into deep rest. The rest is the most important part in the journey to Dove; one’s willingness to be still and receive is where deep transformation and healing can occur. The body is warm, open and receptive to allow all the benefits of the effort’ing to seep down into the body on a cellular and energetic level during the stillness. Dove always make space for this time at the end of each session so one can restore and renew; coming back to a place of harmony and peace with what is in the now.
‘I love what I do. I am blessed to do what I do everyday; and for the past 32 years. I am grateful for every opportunity to support my clients and students on their journey of wellness and Self-care. I wish you well and may you find movement and stillness; mindfully.’ ~Dove
