Some other movement teachers whose work I would recommend:

www.movesintoconsciousness.com Alain Allard, the godfather of 5Rhythms in South London, is a teacher of both the Heartbeat maps and Andrea Juhan's potent Open Floor work.

www.adambarley.com Adam Barley has been doing this for as long as almost anyone in Europe and relishes dancing with the edges of human experience.

www.soulwave.co.uk David and Julie Rose offer a powerful blend of work drawing on 5Rhythms, Movement Medicine, psychotherapy and shamanic ritual

www.bodysong.co.uk Chloe de Sousa, Christian's partner, started the women's Full Moon dances and held a legendary class in Oxford for 8 years.

For Facebook users, there are a multitude of groups for dancers, including pages for the London 5Rhythms community and the Movement Medecine community. Just think of a place/name and search...
