About the Event

I see you holding it all my sweet thing

I see the tension rising as we move again to the silly season

I hear the tightness in the breath, in your body

I see your head above water

I see you doing your best with what you have

I feel the uncertainty

I feel your joy in these moments

I sense the greif as well

I honour you in all that is, and all that is not 

I gift you a rongoa

a sweet release

an exhale

try it just here...

take a moment to inhale catch it at the top and then exhale, honour it all the way out 

let it all out

let it loose 

let it flow 

let it stop 

let it empty out

a sweet full stop at the end before we are ready again 

and we breathe in fully. 

With what is next, 

with our next inspiration, 

with our next moment, or next movement. 

The dance of honouring your exhale was gifted to me on the Dfloor in Bellingham, Jenny Mackie simply said to us all, now 'honour your exhale'...there was something absolutely freeing in not knowing what next but being right here with this flow, this breath, presence, my truth in movement. 

It was and still is my practice for these moments ahead. 

I know it's all coming towards us, the christmas, the crisis, the end of the world!!!

I know it's challenging and real, and I know we stand for our truth! 

I know, I see you I am you <3

And for the next four weeks we end well this gregorian year, 

we honour all that has been with us and all that has been let go of.

Its time, to breathe, to dance, to exhale. 

Let it be the sweetest note to pass your lips, give yourself time to hear yourself, to move with it

empty and full

the titration of living

...And when we meet that next breath in our bodies, our inhale > we have created a space with in us to be with it, 

to deeply appreciate as life floods into our lungs our veins and fill us full of mauri! 

Yes even amongst all this hardness and collective struggle we are alive.

This is real and we move/dance, to be able to live well with what we have, and who we are!

Change is here, the world is pivioting,  let us appreciate this living. 

Tihei Mauri Ora!

There is plenty of time for the inhale this summer, 

for now we honour, we saviour the sweetness of your breath, 

of this practice and of you, 

my dear human of you!  in movement that is true x 

I honour you. 

For this to go ahead I require a dedicated body of movers that commit for the four weeks.

These classes can be taken separately and build on each other.
