Wild Warrior Wisdom Heart

Creative Somatic Dance 

niio stands for new integrated and inspired openings

and is a somatic movement and conscious dance journey 

to find your creativity, abundance and flow

dance is a celebration of life

and invites you to be wild, playful and free

when we connect back into our bodies and make contact with the earth,

cell regeneration and healing can happen

we release the tension in our bodies and we become a channel for creative flow

in this journey of awareness and self-discovery 

we can become an energetic match

for the abundance we desire

'Really surprised by the depth of experience. So valuable to get in touch with the inner truth of my body, from my body. Great to give my body time to freely express my self. I heard so much and learnt so much. Helene is a wonderful workshop leader - sensitive, kind, encouraging, empowered and with good, clear boundaries'

Sonia, Therapist

 'I felt really held and supported by you – your intention was palpable, tangible and I had some deep connections to the universe, the matrix, mother - thank you it was just medicine'

Caroline, Counsellor

Discover your presence, power and purpose

When we dance in moving meditation our molecules and atoms literally shift and change

We release outdated stories to take up our space in the world from a place of deep confidence and calm 

In this creative flow, 
 where we gain insight and inspiration 
Transformation is possible

Roots and Wings : A Calling of the Soul

the niio dance signature programme

niio dance is Informed by 

Somatics and Body-Mind Centering

We journey deep into our bones, fluids and tissues, which have energetic as well as structural qualities. Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen  who created BMC, gives us the alternative holistic anatomical map of the body that Medical school overlooked. 

The Tao

I am Chinese and the Tao is the ancient Chinese ‘Way’ which celebrates acceptance, change, creativity and the natural order and 'flow of the universe.' Symbolically, its element is water with its qualities of yielding, adapting, being soft and strong.

My dance and life Journey

niio dance is an expression of my own life journey - beginning with Ballet, Hung Gar Kung Fu, Yoga, Meditation, Dance Movement Therapy, Somatic Movement Education and extended Conscious, Ecstatic and Shamanic dance journey spanning five decades, a distillation of what has truely resonated. 

Life Art Therapy
Created by one of my teachers the late Anna Halprin, who discovered how dance is connected to our emotional world, healing herself and designing  the Life Art process, that uses movement and art.

Yoga and the Chakra system

This ancient philospophy and system for holistic wellbeing has now seeped into the mainstream. I was fortunate to 'discover' yoga and meditation in India in 1995, and it has been my companion with dance every since.

Nature and the Elements

There is a force and power in nature that human can never match, and indigenous cultures are in tune with its rhythms and cycles of life. We have the elements of nature within us, and it 
can inform, inspire and heal. Interestingly the Inca word for the 'body' is 'animated' or 'luminous' earth...

'Your class was a breath of fresh air and you hold the space so well. I can't remember the last time I laughed like that and played, just being completely authentic in such a long time, it was so refreshing. The classes are really deep and I'm getting a lot out of them. I’m hugely grateful on so many levels.'

Paul-Adam, Multi-disciplinary Artist

‘I love your way of working with me. You have got such wisdom, humbleness and congruence’
