Certification Training for Personal and Professional Development and Deepening the Practice
Movement, Creativity, Expression, and Healing
I had the privilege of being mentored for 2 years by Eva Vigran in her Core Connexion Transformational Arts program and am a honoured to be a certified Core Connexion Facilitator. This healing modality opened my heart and dramatically changed the course of my life. I always hold a healing space in my yoga classes through techniques that I learned through this process and sometimes open my yoga class with authentic movement, as inspired by this process. To learn more about Core Connexion, please watch this short 5 min video. At the core of everybody is the dance. So simple and so inspiring. Thank you, Eva!
Core Connexion Movement Practice & Body-Centered Soul Process
… is an invitation to enter your own dance, wisdom and resources, connecting with aliveness, freedom and interconnection with all living beings. It is a movement and transformational arts practice for personal and professional development, which inspires and transforms people from all over the world.
Dance and movement are affirmations of aliveness and the joy of life.
Through movement we can get in touch with the gifts, talents, wisdom, vitality and resources that are contained within our bodies. We activate our life energy, creativity, joy, awareness and self-healing forces and tap into own innate “dance medicine”.
Allowing our bodies to lead the way, we can remember our bodies and ourselves. We enhance creativity, capacity and fitness of brain + body. We can move out of depression into expression and exploration, opening to the mystery of life more and more. Through increasing our repertoire of motion, emotion, strength and expression in both our body and psyche, we blaze new trails in our brains and find new solutions, no matter what our age. We explore new possibilities and find new ways to truly be ourselves.
During this training we explore the dance of our personal and collective stories through our lives. Through exploring, remembering and expressing our stories, journeys and life dreams we can find our unique soul track and inner medicine. We can discover the possibilities that lie in our own individual life stories, talents and gifts and create our own map of life.
*In Core Connexion we always start with the body, but it is an integral approach to human development that works within all four areas of our lives: body – mind – heart - soul/spirit
*Core Connexion is creative and innovative, as our practice is experiential and experimental and full of wonder
*Core Connexion is transformative, in that all areas of your life are developed simultaneously, creating a transformation that takes you to new levels of integration and expansion.

Body: become anchored in the body’s sensation and discover its wisdom
Heart: acceptance and compassion practice
Mind: stress reduction, awareness based self-inquiry, inner witness, introducing wonder instead of judgment
