Flomotion offers you freedom through dance.
Follow your body, still your mind and dance your dreams.
Flomotion is a safe space to truly feel alive, spontaneous and be answerable to no one. After a session you’ll be relaxed, re-energised and supported by a like-minded community.
“I can’t dance.”
Yes, you can. You can become more alive and more confident by using your body in dance. Shy? We all are to a degree; we take that into account by offering 1-2-1 sessions with Julia.
Everyone welcome; whatever shape, size, experience, or physical limitation.
Flomotion’s playlists are a wonderous and surprising mix of rhythms. The tracks are an invitation to change your current state; be in motion, move your emotions and be re-energised.
We want you to have fun. We help you relax and relieve your everyday stresses.
So, join a Flomotion session for an upbeat selection of jazz, soul, reggae, house, Latin, afrobeats, funk, disco and surprising tunes.
Well, that depends on you and what you bring. Changes usually don’t happen first time. Like everything else in life, the more you put in, the more you’ll get out.
A guided warm up to music of the body parts
'The shake': a powerful body move to shake off stress and tension held in the body
Free expressive dance to a specially selected playlist
Guided meditation & relaxation to soothing music
What do I wear?
Wear comfortable clothing, bare feet if possible, have a yoga mat, blanket or comfortable chair to lie (or sit), water to drink.
Find yourself: dancing with all our hearts stills us, enabling clarity of thinking, wisdom and inspiration.
Experiment: ‘try on’ different ways of being in dance. By-pass the chatter of the thinking mind, and habitual patterns. Allow the restrictions and roles of your ‘normal’ life to fall away.
Experiment: dancing with your eyes shut; the 'inner' dance
Let go: be open to life; feel free, sad, happy, scared, anything…or nothing.
Emotions can get stuck our body, limit our energy, and reduce our ability to feel fully alive.
Julia has been dancing since school days. She went to a diverse inner London comprehensive school, and there discovered the music of many different cultures and peoples.
The 80s Rave Scene
In the 1980s, she became active in the night club and emerging rave scene, and began organising club nights, which included both live music (jam sessions) and house music during and after the second ‘Summer of Love’ (1988).
25 years in Psychotherapy
Julia has practised transpersonal psychotherapy for 25 years. She has had a long-term interest in dance, community, the body and spirituality. In the 1990s she created Spirit in the House; a workshop exploring the transcendent experience of the rave scene.
Dance Self Expression
Julia draws upon multiple influences. Pursuing her own conscious dance practice for the past 15 years (Gabriel Roth's 5 Rhythms, Open Floor), she holds a Teacher Training Certificate in Ecstatic Dance. Process Work, founded by Arnold Mindell, has enriched her understanding of the body as a channel of self-expression and discovery.
