Tamara Candiracci

I’m from Italy and deeply inside I feel a citizen of the world. I’m a Movement Medicine Teacher and I’ve been teaching Movement Medicine for 8 years, mainly in Italy. I’m a passionate of life and of the human being, with a strong sense of social justice, which includes everyone and everything. And I love creating connections and bridges between different worlds and people.

I trust in human development, on a personal and on a collective level ,both as a process and as a creative life’s project, done by small steps. Breathing, dancing and being together, creating a safe space for each other, to blossom and celebrate differences. I’ve been working with a humanitarian organization since 2006, at the beginning in the field, in Ethiopia and Brazil (with another NGO) and Kenya, Sri Lanka, Mozabique and with migrants in Sicily.My role is now Career Manager and I am based in Rome. This has widened my perspective and my ability to put into practice the values of diversity and inclusion.

Alex Svoboda, Ph.D.

I’ve been in service to the liberating power of dance for over decade now. I started teaching freedomDANCE in 2009 and training others to do the same in 2014. It’s been a privilege sharing something that is so accessible and so deep and transformational.

I have been lucky to have work directly with Anna Halprin, train as a 5Rhythms teacher with Gabrielle Roth and be one of the first adopters and graduates of the Open Floor teacher training.

In additional to dance I love research! I’ve studied at five universities and colleges, received a Ph.D., worked as a University instructor and Research Expert at a prominent global management consulting firm.

Prior to the pandemic I had taught online classes for about a decade, although not that often. During the last year, however, I taught the total of 300 hours online!

Silvana Rigobon

My name, Silvana, means “of the Forest”. I am a Movement Medicine teacher and the Community Weaver of Conscious Dance Italy.
I also trained at the Red School as a cycle mentor. Since 2012 I have been facilitating groups in Italy and abroad on individual and collective change processes through body awareness, particularly on female leadership.
Passionate about social innovation, my work is influenced by Manish Jain’s Unlearning pedagogy. I am a TEDx speaker and the co-founder of Ulab Hub Pordenone.
I am Italian, a citizen of the world and nomad at heart.

Maja Stefanovska

Explorer and long years practitioner of different body- mind practices. Covid – 19 lockdown introduce me to conscious dance. Things changed, my life changed and I love the change. It opens the reality of wholeness and  interconnection that rise within. Looking forward  to learn and deepen my embodiment consciousness  through movement.

Biljana Filipovska

I am in education for body oriented psychotherapy, psychology and conscious dance practices.

My previous professional background is in business and consultancy – mostly in the Balkans but also internationally as well.

I am non-religious, nature and wilderness loving mountaineer, hobby musician with passion in discovering the mosaic fit between nature’s elements and rhythms to our own, through local rituals involving all senses. I am in search of the golden thread between the ground which our ancestors hold for us and our current reality.

It was lust for self that led me to embodiment. It thrives me to be part of a project which brings together possibilities which I love and value.

Péter Fejér

I received accreditation to teach the 5Rhythms from Gabrielle Roth in 2011. Since that time I’m offering weekly classes in Budapest, workshops in several different cities in Hungary, Serbia, Romania and Austria, and I offer longer retreats as well. In the same time I’m doing continuous professional development on different workshops with a wide range of teachers.

Lina Kriskova

Quand je danse, je me sens vivante, pleine, aimante. Et quand je transmets la danse à travers mes ateliers et stages d’Open Floor, je ressens en plus de tout ça, le profond sentiment d’être à ma place.

Nina Avdyeyenko

If Nina is not deep in corporate finance (yes, she is a finansist!), then she is supposed to do something physical – social dancing or contact improvisation, bike riding or freeride skiing… Still she has chosen to teach freedomDANCE! This is a practice, it’s not about attaining something, rather it helps dancers widen the endless possibilities of the heart; to live them through their own bodies, to be more open and able to respond to whatever comes towards us and whatever stirs inside or outside . Nina brings to her classes fuss and joy, ability to embody in the dance different states and devotion to the quality of what she is doing. Nina feels honored to witness and support the most profound human beauty that occurs on the dance floor.

Patrícia Mihályi

After many years of contact improvisation and 5Ritmus practice, I came across Movement Medicine. Like great loves usually do, it set my life on a completely different path. Or is it just now putting you back on the track where you really belong? We’ll find out in the end.
I studied pedagogy and body-based therapy. I have never worked in a school or as a teacher, I work in the design of international cultural programmes. For me, the body is the origin, the home and true reality. MM is the best part of my life and of who I am and who I want to become – I am honoured to share some of that.

Meredith Marks

Meredith began her working life as an eco-architect and community organizer, passionate about building a better, more just world through sustainable design and grassroots community development projects.  After becoming ill with an autoimmune condition in 2011, Meredith shifted her focus to an array of global healing traditions. She now works across these disciplines to empower people to alchemize personal struggle into personal growth – to deepen relationships with their own bodies and minds, with family and community, with Nature and with Spirit.

Kata Máthé

For me, free dance is the most direct way to freedom and connection with myself and the world.
The most natural way to be present.
I am a Movement Medicine teacher in training, learning from Adam Barley, founder of ZeroOne, alongside Ya’acov and Susannah Darling Khan.

Catherine Wright

In 1999, I found Conscious Dance as a spiritual practice and path. Since then, I have qualified as a teacher and facilitator in Movement Medicine. The wisdom we can access through our bodies has woven itself into everything I do. In all of my work and study, my intention is to more fully understand myself, and our shared humanity.
