What Moves You Grant Winner: Sandrine Harris


Whole Body Wellness Through KINESOMA℠
Movement has the power to transform your mind and body. Moving daily has been a part of my life since I can remember, and it is what I am most passionate about! It is this passion that drew me to create KINESOMA℠, so I can help others experience the benefits—and the joy—of mindful movement.

KINESOMA℠ is a comprehensive system that creatively blends principles and practices of
Dance, the Feldenkrais Method®, and Mindfulness into a gentle, whole-person approach to exercise. With an emphasis on deliberate movement, observation, learning, and FUN, classes are accessible to every body and everybody and re-teach how to move with ease and efficiency.

My history with movement work began early in life. I was a professional dancer and trained rigorously, every day, for more than 20 years. Along the way, I experienced my share of chronic injuries and body changes that led me on a search for how movement could contribute to overall wellness. Through studying many different modalities, I have found a way to move that is balanced and geared towards healthy joints, strong muscles, and a peaceful mind. I share this with others through KINESOMA℠ classes and private sessions.

Thanks to the generous support of a What Moves You grant from FABLETICS, I have created a 12-workshop program for my community called WHOLE BODY WELLNESS THROUGH KINESOMA℠. Each workshop is devoted to a different topic related to movement wellness. From March through December 2014, I’ll be helping my community explore movement through these dynamic classes:
■ KINESOMA℠ Movement Learning
■ Breath
■ Your Pelvis & Pelvic Floor
■ Balance
■ Strength Through Ballet
■ Your Dynamic Skeleton
■ Happy Hips & Knees
■ Tension Relief for Neck & Shoulders
■ Rhythms of Movement
■ Rediscovering Your Hands and Feet
■ Movement for Stress Relief
■ Dance for JOY!
