Hi, I am Hayley.
Woman, mother, dreamer and lover of wild landscapes. Explorer of culture, embodiment and belonging through the artistry of the moving body.
I work as a trauma informed, ISMETA registered, somatic movement therapist and educator (RSMT, RSME), yoga therapist and educator, and singer.
For the past two decades I have been facilitating movement and collaborative somatic explorations within diverse communities.
For much of my life I have been tending the living landscapes of body, earth and the liminal, through movement, voice, therapy and ritual.
Body as Support: In response to this cultural paradigm, I am motivated to share simple and effective tools that allow you to inhabit your own body with a greater sense of presence and in relationship with the world around you. I see connecting with the body’s innate faculties of support as the groundwork that allows this work to unfold safely.
Body as Guide: Somatic practice evokes awareness of, and offers expression to, body systems that can often sit below the threshold of everyday awareness. Contacting these systems and remaining attentive to body as living process can inform and guide you as you navigate your unique path.
Body as Nature: I work to validate the living wisdom of the body and its place as part of the animate Earth.
Embodying your relational interconnection with others, the space you inhabit and the Earth forms an important part of this work.
We are not apart from nature. We are nature. At its heart, this work is dedicated to the remembrance of this through the body.
My one-to-one therapeutic and Authentic Movement practice is currently based from MoveForward studio in central Totnes. The studio is opposite St. Mary’s church and there is a flight of stairs upon entering the building. Due to my current capacity and availability of studio spaces in Totnes, this is where I base my practice for now.
I would like to acknowledge that this venue may not be accessible for everyone and my intention is, as space opens up more in my own life with regards to mothering, to seek out alternate, more accessible venues to include in my practice. Please bear with me and thank you for your patience.
