Body as Earth

Movement is a
gateway to expression.

Expression heals
repressed emotions.

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.

Classes

Embodied Landscapes™

An embodied exploration enliven nature within.

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

Chloe is trauma aware and assures accessibility in movement for all bodies.

Embodied Landscapes  is created by Chloe and has been offered in Singapore, Hong Kong, Philippines and Thailand.

What to Expect

During the class, we will begin with a somatic (body based) awareness practice, followed by opening the spine through 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.

Why Should You Join

Embodiment classes and workshops are focused on sharing healing power of the body. Movement therapy acts as a bridge for all abilities and body types to deepen their relationship with their bodies, leading into healthy expression and resolution.

Percussive Pulse™

Inspired by during her time as dance-resident in Senegal, West Africa, Chloe created Percussion Pulse™ which combines her embodiment class with live percussion and drum music by local musicians.

Dancing and drumming share a common ground of rhythm and movement. As seen as our inner impulses, within the cosmology, and as a way of life.

Event

Ecstatic Dance

Ecstatic dance is an event where liberating and spontaneous form of movement where individuals express themselves freely through dance, letting go of set choreography and allowing the music to guide their unique journey of self-discovery and creative exploration. It’s a holistic experience that combines physical, emotional, and spiritual elements, fostering a sense of community and personal transformation.

Chloe host and facilitate Ecstatic Dance events in collaboration with local Ecstatic Dance DJ’s and musicians. 
No Alcohol, No Talking, Just Dance

In our sessions, anticipate a vibrant, judgment-free space where you’re encouraged to move authentically and connect with your inner rhythm. We foster a conscious community by adhering to a few shared agreements: no drugs or alcohol to keep the experience clear-headed, no shoes or talking on the dance floor to enhance the mind-body connection, and a commitment to respect consent in partnering. Our dancers use signals such as a hand on the heart or crossed arms to communicate boundaries, ensuring a space of trust and shared understanding.

What is Embodiment & Movement ?

A Dynamic Dialogue of Body-Mind Connection

Embodiment is the practice of being fully present in your body, acknowledging its wisdom and intelligence. Movement is integral to embodiment, serving as a gateway to express emotions, release tension, and enhance the mind-body connection

In a world often dominated by cognitive or mental control, embodiment practices aim to shift the focus to a more holistic approach.

In other words, embodiment emphasizes the bidirectional relationship between the mind and body. It acknowledges that the body holds valuable information, emotions, and intelligence, and by tuning into the body’s signals, we can manage our mental states, decision-making processes, and overall well-being. Embodying a shift from mind control to a holistic integration.

This shift from mind controlling body (top to bottom) to a body integrated approach, where the body informs and guides the mind (bottom to top), is a fundamental principle in embodiment practices.

Embodiment is a journey from mind control to a harmonious integration, where movement becomes a profound tool for self-expression, emotional release, and holistic well-being allowing movements to guide our mind.

 

About Chloe Calderon Chotrani as

Embodiment Facilitator

Chloe: “I barely spoke as a young child. Later discovering, I had selective mutism. With no voice, dancing became my refuge. I did not speak to people but I could dance in front of thousands. I did not socialise, but I listened deeply to my body, and too, understood other bodies before words.

I learned ballet, excelled, and then left once I experienced judgement and shame from the Western standards of ballet. I fell in love with street dance as they embraced all flavours, colours, and sizes. I learned – not the kind of street dance you see today in studios – but the kind found in parking lots, cyphers on concrete, and break dance battles. We worked with children from the slums to bring their attention from violence and drugs into dancing and expression. Dancing went beyond economic class or social status. It taught me about community and joy – the roots of dancing. That was my world for 12 years.

Dancing is our most ancient ceremony

I learned West African Modern Folk Dance, from the lineage of Mama Germaine Acogny in the coast of Senegal. I learned salsa, contemporary, somatics, and experimental improvisation from downtown Gibney Dance and the underground communities of New York City. I immersed  between traditional and contemporary forms through Malay dance from p71sma and Indian Odissi dance from Chowk in Singapore.

I am akin to an octopus – I integrate all that I have learned, embody dancing beyond category, and share this wisdom with all peoples that desire to deepen their relationship with their body. No one needs to be a dancer to dance. As seen in the thousands year old rock art in caves, dancing is our most ancient ceremony.”
