Eurythmy is a very versatile movement art, which has many applications and uses. Saraphir is especially interested in how Eurythmy can be used to support and promote individual development and well-being, as well as how it can help groups and teams work together better and improve organisational processes. She is committed to bringing the benefits of Eurythmy to as many people as possible.
Saraphir has a background in the third sector where she has worked with adult support and development for many years. During this time her prime motivating factor was always to find ways of encouraging and promoting learning, independence and confidence in the people she worked with, a practice she is now continuing in her work with Eurythmy.
She completed a BSocSc in Social Science and Welfare Studies from Roskilde University in Denmark in 2000 and has a Diploma in The Art of Eurythmy. She is currently completing a Diploma in Coaching and Mentoring.
Over the years she has gained experience of working within many different organisational structures including commercial businesses, charities, intentional communities and a political party. For more information about Saraphir’s experience please see her LinkedIn profile.
