Embodied Landscapes: Movement and Sound

A space to let the body speak before the mind. Through movement as a gateway, we will work with the intention to feel free in your body. 

Movement helps our bodies to release endorphins, liberates us from fight/flight/freeze mode, restores balance to the nervous system, and serves as a valuable tool for letting go of tension and effectively managing stress. While sound helps us to be in a flow state; specific frequencies invite us into a deep rest state for optimal restoration. 

During the class, we will begin with a somatic (body based) awareness practice, followed by opening the spine through a simple yet effective spinal flow sequence to deepen into the ease, warmth, and widening of our sense of embodiment. Once the fluidity of the spine is open, we will activate our spatial awareness through guided prompts, and transition into an intuitive flow with live instruments, and soothing sound scape to integrate the experience as a whole.

Embodiment awakens the body’s intelligence to heal from within. Movement acts as a bridge for all abilities and body types to deepen their relationship with their bodies, leading into expression and resolution.

About the facilitators

Chloe Calderon Chotrani

Chloe is a queer Sindhi-Filipinx-Singaporean therapist, facilitator, and educator. She is the founder of Body as Earth, a space for connecting to belonging through the wisdom of the body. Belonging by relating to the self, others, and earth as interconnected.

She works with people who experience the wound of separation between the mind-body-soul, which may come in the forms of chronic stress, anxiety, disease, pain, inflammation, and burn out. Drawing upon mature experience in world movement arts, complementary medical health, trauma sensitive facilitation, bodywork modalities, and earth-based wisdom. 

Having come into therapy as a dancer with former selective mutism, Chloe has a strong kinaesthetic sensibility, allowing her to naturally attune to the unspoken story of the body. Cultured by personal experiences with severe anxiety, neurodivergence, and volatile environments; Chloe positions herself in service amid collective trauma, working towards liberation for all.

Chloe is formally trained and certified as a Therapist by Body Intelligence, The Embody Lab, Trauma Center, Soma Clinic and Illuma Health. 

She responds to the meta-crisis of the current climate catastrophe by advocating for ancestral animistic practices through her labor of bridging embodied wisdom to communities. Her diverse heritage reflects a cross-cultural sensitivity and a care-based approach. 

She believes that the deeper we can connect to our bodies, the more we can connect to belonging, peace, and internal harmony to be expressed in the way we live.
