Coming Together: A Nia® and Soul Motion™ Playshop with Camilla Steen Larsen

Coming Together: Nia® and Soul Motion™ Playshop

with Camilla Steen Larsen 


coming together - the social act of assembling for some common purpose

Together - you and I - begin and return to the potent pause of presence. We start close in with the dance intimate; the one closest to our skin. This is a dance of discovery; one in which we move with what is here, near and far. We investigate how to be present and grounded in relationship to ourselves, others and the world; dancing alone and together – unique yet never separate – meeting ourselves and others with open hearts. 

Through our own body as teacher and guide, the dance may bring us one step closer to ourselves. We may experience a heightened sense of presence ~ a feeling of coming home. Whether you have a weekly movement practice or are stepping onto the dance floor for the first time, these practices will condition your nervous system and set your soul in motion. 

“To become human is to become visible, while bringing what is hidden as a gift for others” ~ David Whyte

About Camilla: 
Camilla Steen Larsen brings 25 years of experience in teaching movement, dance and life change. She began teaching dance, hip/hop and aerobics in 1991, which led her on an exploration of multiple body-based trainings and the eventual creation of StudioNiaCph (Copenhagen) where she teaches and shares her work of conscious movement as a lifestyle practice. She has facilitated on international dance floors across the globe, bringing what she calls Motivation Through Movement – Mastery of Self to inspire and motivate movers through a creative and authentic tool box enriched by her education in Biyun Medical Qi Gong, Nia (Black Belt) and Soul Motion™. She is an honest, open and loving teacher.
