Service Description

If you are interested in looking after your own general wellbeing or mental health and caring for the emotional wellbeing of others then join Julia James-Griffiths, Dance Practitioner and creator of Mind to Move, Dr Corinne Jola, senior lecturer in Psychology at Abertay University Dundee and Emily-May Barlow, lecturer in Mental Health Nursing at the University of Dundee for an insightful practical workshop and discussion exploring the connections of the brain, body, and the mind. Mind To Move is a relaxation mindful movement practice devised and delivered by Julia. The practice focuses on supporting mental health and well-being needs through relaxation and mindful movement; connecting the mind and body together to bring release. Emily-May hopes to enrich the workshop with insights on promoting emotional expression and holistic well-being, and how this can connect to movement. Corinne will aim to give you novel insight into how the brain, mind, and body respond to mindful practices involved in dancing. Corinne’s goal is to provide you with new perspectives from research on how the brain, mind, and body respond to mindful practices, like those found in dancing or Julia’s workshop, which may facilitate greater care, love, and compassion for oneself and others.
