"I noticed when I was dancing today how much my soul needed what you were creating in the space. And I'm feeling very grateful. As I so need spaces for connection with my body and with others in the raw humanity of the joy of movement. And so I'm moved to offer my heartfelt appreciation for your service. It will live on in my memory as one of the first times I engaged in such body connecting joyful movement outside of an alcohol environment." dancer anon
"I have been coming to Sarena's Sunday morning 5Rhythms class for many years and I absolutely love it. It is liberating, restorative, grounding, a safe space where I come home to myself and connect deeply with others. And it is all these things because Sarena holds the space so beautifully, with humility, honesty, authenticity, wisdom, warmth and compassion. And of course some great music!"

Dream Doors - in person in Edinburgh -2024
Dream Doors, a series of Saturday afternoon workshops, providing space explore different themes in movement. Ultimately by getting to know myself, I move closer to self compassion – because I do not have to fulfil or live something that is not me. I do not have to respond to any demand from outside or internal. I become my biggest project.
In these 4-hour workshops we will explore and dance, write, draw to discover what in us is ready to emerge and grow. Do one workshop or all. You also get an optional 30-minute one to one session supporting you to integrate during the week after the workshop.

Living Closer to the Dreaming - on zoom
Three 2 hour session online over 3 weeks - you commit to all.
We use movement and the spoken word creating the poetry that is present in our bodies. We hold space for each other, dance, feeling into our current physical state and our mental mood, have an opportunity to explore one to one, be the witness, feeling into those same places in ourselves, be witnessed as we step into a new layer of trust in our bodies, and over time learn to trust our body's movements and sensations - quirky, strange, pleasant.
I love this unique way of working as it provides safety in a group, connecting in ways we don't normally do in everyday life. It opens up to how else we can be in communion with the world and those close to us.
Dates: NEW DATES TO FOLLOW
Time: Either 10am - 12noon or 6pm - 8pm
Cost for each block: £50 per session or £120 paid in advance (you commit to all three session)
