forming healthy movement

Eurythmy

This therapy works through movement itself. Specific exercises are chosen for each student and are repeated twice weekly over a longer period of time until they become habitual.

Eurythmy therapy aims above all to improve posture and enhance balance, strengthening the awareness and co-ordination of the limbs.

The ability to release tension and anxiety is practised through flowing movements of contraction and expansion with the arms. We also move to rhythms which can help to strengthen and deepen the breathing.

When there is a difficulty with balance, asymmetry or the ability to remain still, parallel forms are introduced with the arms and legs.

Gradual improvement in all the above areas can usually be observed over the course of time.
