The figure at the very heart of Move with Jude - a movement educator, practitioner and writer with a multidisciplinary and multifaceted approach to teaching, sharing and practising movement and associated practices. This approach is infused with functional movement, relaxation, somatics, yoga, meditation, strength and mobility training, along with theatre and dance.
Jude is a continual student of ancient philosophies, practices and spiritual traditions, including yoga and Traditional Chinese Medicine. She believes in the importance of valuing these ancient roots and incorporates aspects into her teaching, personal practice and approach to life.
Jude's purpose is to facilitate students building confidence in and through movement for day-to-day life and in other settings (e.g. sport, performing arts). She encourages students to fall in love with moving and creative expression, creating pathways to heal themselves, communities and the wider world, ultimately leading to living life in the fullest way possible.
Movement (in its widest sense) serves all bodies, from all backgrounds and Jude believes it's vital to recognise, acknowledge and make this possible. It's about being human after all. Come move, connect and create!
