EMOVE Institute is so happy to welcome Peggy Hackney in Amsterdam to teach a 4 day workshop,  July 2021!

The workshop it titled: “Breath & Phrasing, Journey through Shape & Space”, and will be open to all movement practitioners.

By studying the basic nature of the Breath and Phrasing you will experience

  • more ease and flow in movement and expression
  • more access to finding the core/essence/center of yourself
  • different possibilities for Phrasing your Self statements…and hence
  • more Self expression
  • access to your own creative resources to avoid burnout and injury

Check out the flyer below.

The workshop is fully booked, so registration is no longer possible.

In addition to the workshop we organize a shared practice time in the afternoon for C(L)MA’s (2.30 pm – 5.30 pm) entitled ‘Embodied Knowledge – Gathering and Sharing’. There all C(L)MA’s can present their work, interests and ideas on how to bring LBMS into the world. We will share our common ground and learn from each other. We ask participants to contribute in the costs for rent and organization of the afternoons (90 euro per person). We really hope a lot of C(L)MA’s will join the afternoon workshop, it is such a special opportunity to work with each other! If you want to join this workshop, please mail to
