Comments from Participants
“Inner Dance brings me into myself, my internal processes. I’m learning new ways of moving, new ways to perceive…it’s about renewal.”
“For me, as a psychotherapist, this work & it’s practice is deeply valuable, not only for it’s intrinsic pleasure & the results I experience in terms of my growing strength, endurance & flexibility, but also the way it supports experientially the trust in creative emergence that I want to bring to my work with clients.”
“There has been an integration of pre-verbal movement & sensation with current emotional issues…”
“I just started Jungle Gym 7 months ago at 57… Now I am confident that I will be even more vital, vibrant, strong, and flexible at 60 and beyond than I am now & awareness has given me a whole new perspective on the next stages of my life in all areas.”
“I’ve been looking for a class like this for a long time… Val creates a space of absolute safety & welcome!”
“I have experienced profound discovery in the undoing of form, the dissolve and the emergence of self. This work, this Inner Dance, is far reaching, effecting my relationship to loved ones, my sense of connection to all things on a universal level and especially to myself.”
“The warmth and safety of the group offers a web of support for exploration. Our sound and movement create a resonate field where my body and emotion integrate in the play of breath.
By being a witness to my own vulnerability in a preverbal space, i’ve been able to face and resolve huge chasms of grief and regret.”
“Val Leoffler has focused her life to this moment of offering. Her gift, her offering, as a teacher is oceanic in depth and volume. I come to immerse weekly, as I experience deep joy in the freedom and buoyancy of the dive.”
“..Sense of Connection to all things on a universal level and especially to a rich intimacy with myself. The key experience for me is the word relationship, the concept of conscious interconnection, the bringing to awareness that all is related; from the intricacies and pulsations of blood, fluids and breath moving in my body.. to the spinning of the stars in the sky. The more I am made aware of thru discovery in this body form, the more I live in utter mystery.
Comments about Fusion Movement:
“Val offers the most comprehensive, intelligent work out imaginable.”
“Her 30 + years of experience in the bodywork field are to the classes rich benefit. The class weaves stretching, yoga, cardio, dance, improv, balance and building core strength in a way that keeps my body enlivened and in shape for sports like surfing. Doing this in a group is fun, community is created, and the spacious westside studio helps me bring a little breath into the middle of the week.”
