What happens when we tap into our own bodies? What happens when we listen to the quiet and lingering urge to dance like no one's watching? Transformation? Healing? Find JOY? Journey into our SELFish zones? Come prepared to move at this interactive workshop on the benefit of movement, authenticity, and community with movement and music artist, @iamsanovia. Movement supports emotional balance, mental stability, and physical health. All of these elements support resilience for providers working in a fast-paced, crisis-driven field.
Guest Faculty: Sanovia Garrett is an Energetic Storyteller that uses music and movement performances, Sanovia instigates an instinctual full-body expression that sparks her audience to infuse more authenticity and joy in their everyday lives. Sanovia leads first as a trauma-informed artist with a MA in Urban Studies (Community Arts) from Eastern University/BuildaBridge International. You can find her on Youtube and instagram using her hashtag #catchmeinthelight, @iamsanovia.
