"Soul Motion is a conscious dance practice that views creativity as an inherent expression for everybody. Nurturing and developing the awakening of stillness in every movement moment." Vinn Arjuna Martí (founder)
Soul Motion® is a transformative movement practice allowing mental, emotional and physical restoration and relaxation. It allows a busy mind to pause and the body to deeply feel by cultivating full presence and exploring with curiosity alone and together. The dance floor is a place to experiment and express, allowing us to cultivate our curiosity of life so we can inhabit this body more fully as it serves us in our everyday life. Soul Motion is a relational practice and its architecture is built around the spiral of life, representing our 4 main life relationships, ourself (dance of discovery), one other (dance of dialogue), community (dance of diversity) and spirit (dance of divinity). A spiral has no beginning or end and yet there is a core to its being. This core is you and your body, the relationship of self is always ever present and available whether we are moving on our own, with another, others or with space it self. A place to come home to. This body.
"The body is nothing but rhythm. The universe is nothing but rhythm. Everything in the universe is also in your body" Dr Ran Krishna Bhosle
Samvahan is a method of treatment that creates healing experiences through vibration. In Sanskrit Samvahan literally means 'the vehicle for delivering balance'. It is a method that offers a healing environment that is both subtle and grounded.
All healing requires movement. Trauma, emotions, tissues, fluids and energy must move for healing to progress. Samvahan is an ancient Indian vibrational treatment system based in Vedic philosophy and is a method of balancing the natural healing rhythms of your body. Using therapeutic touch and gentle movement to support the body to find it's own natural healing pathways it physically amplifies the internal vibrations that drives your health. It is profound, musical, and meditative. These sessions aim for people to feel grounded and centred, move held emotions or stress through the body, improve balance and spatial awareness, bring ease to the nervous system and develop greater capacity to respond to the world with ease.

Samvahan - A way of Being
Where did Samvahan originate? Samvahan was practiced for millennia in ancient India.Doctors treated the maharajas and maharanis with gentle touch from their hands.The first wetter reference claiming the value of Samvahan was 2,500 years ago by the Indian scholar and doctor Charuk. Like many of India’s great arts and sciences, Samvahan fell into disuse after the Mogul invasions.The years of British rule and introduction of modern medicine drove Samvahan further into the pages of history. In the 1930’s a young Indian chiropractor with European education, Dr. Ram Bhosle, was inspired to begin using vibrations from his hand to heal his patients.Dr. Bhosle began reading the ancient texts about vibrational healing, and eventually spent six years in the Himalayas studying with Maha Avatar Babaji and other yoga masters to perfect the method.His successes led him to become the personal healer for Mahatma Gandhi, Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru and leaders from around the world.
Who did Kate-Marie learn from? Michael Trembath was a Samvahan therapist and teacher with over 28 years of clinical experience. He apprenticed with Dr. Bhosle in India and brought a wealth of practical guidance and wisdom to his classes. The blessed Michael recently passed away (march 25th 2021) and his teachings now live through a circle of practitioners world wide. His warmth, subtlety and sacredness of this work was incredibly accessible to all. He taught Samvahan around the world since 1998.
"No one heals us. We heal ourselves. And we can heal no one else" Michael Trembrath
Somatic Counselling / Psychotherapy
Our bodies are involved in all of our thoughts & emotions. Sometimes words can't convey the depth of our experience or shift unhealthy patterns, but mindful attention to physical experience can open up new awareness and self-compassion. The main practices offered with InBody sessions are person centred counselling and learnings from ongoing trainings in the Hakomi psychotherapy principles and practices. Kate-Marie's ongoing training as a registered counsellor supports people to digest historical or current traumas, understand how to self regulate the body system through breath and body awareness and bring loving attention to the parts of self that are restless and ready for change. Research shows that trauma gets stored in our bodies via our central nervous system’s response to distress. Understanding and regulating these responses is a crucial step towards healing. As you build the permissions to inbody stillness and sensation, new ways of relating easily and safely arise. A form of re-sensitising the body to listen, feel and embrace the whole self.
