This Teacher’s Workshop is offered in conjunction with the Northwest Dance Intensive. Participants will have a chance to observe and/or participate in the exercises that form the foundation of the Beamish BodyMind Balancing® technique.

You’ll discover how to use this innovative method to produce remarkable results for dancers of all levels. We guarantee you will not have seen this material before!

After each session there will be a question and answer session with instructors of the Beamish BodyMind Balancing Technique.

Participation in the exercise portion of the class is not mandatory. However, since the work is quite gentle, it is quite possible to participate even if you haven’t danced or exercised for years. Philip’s work “meets a person where they are at”.

Optimizing Turnout, Flexibility and Connections in Dance:

For the Dance Instructor, Advanced Dancer, Pilates Instructor and Dance Medicine/Science Professional. The Beamish Bodymind Balancing® technique was created by Philip Beamish to train all levels of dancers. It is the product of many years of investigation into the relationship between the mind, the body, and energy flow. It incorporates various aspects of acupressure, Do-In (a Chinese massage and exercise technique), yoga, meditation, kinesiology, and osteopathy, in order to align the body and focus the mind to obtain maximum results while eliminating unnecessary tensions. This can then be applied to any type of physical activity, although it is primarily orientated to classical ballet technique.

Beamish Bodymind Balancing is based on the premise that what we give, we always get back. Philip says: “If you respect the laws of movement, and treat your body gently and with intelligence, then, through dance, you will get back what you put in.” In other words, many dancers put a in a huge amount of effort and get minimal results. The techniques Philip has developed allow “maximum return on investment” – hard work is rewarded with great improvement.

The exercises enable dancers to reshape their bodies and calm and focus their minds, with spectacular results on and off stage. The technique is a tool to maintain a healthy, youthful body, a focused mind, a balanced emotional state, and avoid chronic injuries. It also promotes self esteem, and prolongs the ability not only to dance longer, but to live a richer and more satisfying life.

*If you choose to participate you will need a Yoga Mat.
