An Antidote to Hong Kong’s Fast-paced, Stressful Lifestyle

“Once upon a time…your Body – Somatic Movement Exploration Classes”

Life in Hong Kong is fast-paced, stressful and sometimes overwhelming. How do you relax, slow down and return to ease and balance?

Let yourself be guided into a deeper, lived experience of your posture, your organs, the flow of fluids, breath and energy in your body. Explore how your body moves the mind and how your mind moves the body.

This bodily approach is based on Body-Mind Movement Education and Therapy.

In these Somatic Movement Explorations you’ll learn how to find the goodness inside:
  • Be present in every organ, tissue and cell of your body
  • Connect with your body’s innate ability to find balance
  • Be more present with yourself and others
  • Access a place of ease and balance, no matter how noisy those Hong Kong taxi horns are!


Being with self and others, communicating, expressing, sharing

The classes offer “A living Lab'” for self discovery, a place for mind/body integration and awareness through experiential anatomy.

You will explore aspects of your living body and self through breathing, hands-on, imagery, drawing, sounding…in addition to movement.

The result is:

A long lasting improvement in your physical function, health, self-understanding and self-sufficiency. A sense of being at home in your body.

Your blood vessels are like rivers flowing in your body

Become a living scientist! Let your body teach you its ways!

Hi Anne! At your workshop, I had a such wonderful experience and was amazed to realize about my body & mind through your work.

Because of raising my little daughter, I always have very stift neck and shoulders. And it was such a long time I did not have so much relaxed feeling during and after your workshop. I wish I can practice more in daily life though…

I am looking forward to taking your workshop very soon.

Thank you for sharing your great work.

Till then,

Tamami Nooruddin

Thank you so much for your workshop last night.

So nurturing, nourishing and self-loving. Such good medicine.

I really appreciate your guiding self, the way you led and also allowed us to lead ourselves. I felt no expectation from you beyond the structure you created softly and lovingly, and that allowed me my self-exploration in safety. Thankyou!
