What is MovMeant?
Emotional memory is stored in the mind-body. It lives within every crevice of our being. MovMeant releases the mind-body of stored trauma to bring forth healing through a felt sense creative process. Not all feelings can be expressed verbally. MovMeant supplies a safe space to explore our emotional landscape by physically moving our way through the storm. The body constantly gives us subtle cues. Many of us are aware of external or verbal signs but unfortunately we quickly dismiss our powerful intuitive nature. MovMeant will guide you towards reconnecting body-mind-spirit by using various movement practices, explorative exercises, vocalization, breath and playful imagination to assist in your self-love journey towards a more peacefully connected you.

MovMEANT Healing Arts
Tamara has always used movement as a source of self care, even as a child. It’s therapeutic-like tendencies combined with a creative outlet, invite an inner cleansing like no other form of expression. Being a feisty little scorpio, movement was always available to her as “medicine”, no matter the space, money or time and she has embraced her calling to share it’s magic with the world. Noticing a lack of safe space to move free, Tamara decided to redirect her more technical movement based classes towards soul searching free movement. The effects of this euphoric practice are felt instantly! Students leave classes feeling refreshed, energized and inspired! No one can deny the mind blowing power of MovMEANT medicine! This practice provides a non judgment zone to be YOU, be boldly unapologetic and speak through whatever means necessary to release your inner toxins and confront your fears. Tamara has forged ahead sharing her guided free movement throughout the world and couldn’t feel more fulfilled and inspired.
WHAT TO EXPECT?
MovMeant is rooted in the power of breath and vocalization. Unlocking the throat chakra is at the core of this empowering practice. Tamara guides her students through breath-to-movement creative explorative exercises and lightly choreographed movement sequences to assist in activating your felt sense. This is done without labels, rules, or expectations, within a non judgement zone inviting YOU to be unapologetically YOU.
Tamara guides, but you decide! Classes and workshops are ALL LEVELS unless otherwise noted. MovMeant is YOUR practice first and foremost. YOU choose how far you want to dig in.
