Structure of Therapy in Motion Training

The Therapy in Motion Module is 10-day course. It can be taken as part of the Therapy in Motion Teacher Training track, which means it can be taken as a Module 2 or as a 4th module. Therapy in Motion can also be taken as a Stand Alone program for qualified therapists who want to add more embodiment to their client work but don't necessarily want to take the full Teacher Training program. Future plans include more Therapy in Motion Modules and more subjects and training in Open Floor Encounter work.

This program assumes that:

  • You are a trained, accredited and working therapist.
  • You have a high level of emotional intelligence.
  • You have a rounded education in psychological dynamics and experience in therapeutic practice.
  • You are a clinician who respects and values the place of body and movement in the psychotherapeutic encounter.


  • Licensed therapy professional with at least 300 hours of supervised practice
  • Personal experience in conscious dance and/or other embodied movement practices.
  • Attendance at a Ground Floor Lab program to familiarize yourself with Open Floor Movement Practice curriculum that is the ground of the TIM Training.

Therapy in Motion is open to movement, art, drama, and music therapists, psychologists, social workers, psychiatrists, and mental health counsellors from a variety of backgrounds.
