Somatic movement education: learn how to learn through your body
Pregnancy yoga: your body, your practice, embrace change
Live online movement principles classes for 2021 updates coming soon. Thank you to all who attended in 2020!
I am enjoying the building of movement tasks during each lesson – simple to more complex – allowing my body and mind to warm up and tune in. I am enjoying learning a new language in my body and a new vocabulary to speak about my experience. During these stressful times I have found the practice to be a nourishing release of unhealthy tension and a great way to begin a day (Bronwen Kamasz, dance artist, Melbourne)
I just wanted to say thank for the classes. I am amazed with them. The explorations helped me to get in touch with something very deep in me – the source of creativity, vitality, spontaneity. (M, Poland)

It is open to every women, not only dancers/movers. Alexandra is holding the space so we can totally relax and find our ways. (Emma Zangs, dance artist)
I hoped to be exposed to new movement possibilities during pregnancy, try out new postures and positions and get to know my body during this process of change. I am enjoying having the set time to connect with my body, my movement, the baby inside of me, discovering the movement advantages pregnancy has, instead of paying attention only to the ‘disadvantages’. (Maya Felixbrodt, musician, Netherlands)
Movement Principles class series streaming coming in 2021!
- Bartenieff Fundamental Principles
- Themes of duality
- Playing with principles
My movement principles classes are developed from Laban/Bartenieff Movement System, somatic movement education and dance improvisation. LBMS is a comprehensive system used to understand and explore many aspects of human movement patterns. LBMS is unique as it identifies both the qualitative as well as quantitative aspects of movement, taking into account functional as well as expressive content. I (Ali Baybutt) teach it as a somatic practice (through the felt-sense of the body) with an emphasis on creative exploration.
