Workshops for Everyone

Moving Presence offers eurythmy workshops in Edinburgh for adults of all ages. Eurythmy is Greek for ‘harmonious movement’. It is a movement art which is both harmonious to do and which prepares a fertile ground for harmony to take hold. It can be done by anyone as it does not require great levels of fitness or any experience with movement. While you often do get quite warm from doing eurythmy, it is not physically taxing; rather, it helps us to develop our awareness of ourselves and others and our ability to manage our will, thoughts and emotions. There are a lot of different movement activities available today which encourage letting go by simply letting go of control. Eurythmy does the opposite in that it encourages letting go by becoming more aware of our breathing, our tensions and our inner and outer space. It equips us for the busyness and distractions of modern life and gives us a method through which we can stay more centred and present throughout the movements of our daily life.

“I loved every minute!”
