Mind To Move classes - official launch
Message from Julia James-Griffiths:
I am excited to announce the official launch of Mind To Move classes, and our first online course with Dance Base!
Mind To Move initially started out as a workshop and outreach programme that I delivered as a part of The Box Project. The workshops involved a sharing of The Box and discussions about the subject of mental health issues, as well as relaxation and movement exercises that focused on supporting mental health needs. Over the years I have been developing Mind To Move, and it has now evolved into a recognised mindful movement practice out with of The Box Project.
During lockdown, I began the development of Mind To Move into an independent mindful relaxation and movement class, and trailed our first Mind To Move classes online with great success. I am excited now to make an official launch of Mind To Move as a practice with Dance Base, and look forward to working with them to deliver these classes online!
Mind To Move classes are focused on supporting mental health and well-being needs and are open to all. You don't need to have experience of mental health issues to join, but are equally welcome to! The classes begin with exercises in breathing, relaxation, and visualisation, before moving into led movement improvisation.
The weekly classes I will be delivering with Dance Base will run for 5-week blocks every Monday from 7 - 7:30pm via Zoom, starting on the 9th of November.

You can also view the Upcoming Classes & Workshops page on our website for future classes and workshop dates.
I look forward to moving with you!

Incredibly helpful for me at a time of personal transition and particularly now as we all begin to explore how we move forward through lockdown. ”
