Moving Body Awareness
Galit discovered the meditative nature of slow, focused movement while working on strengthening her technique as a dancer. Slowing movement to almost stillness in order to better understand its mechanics and improve quality. Galit found she kept going into a very present yet meditative state. This fascinated her and she went on to explore this further, first on herself and then with other people. In 2007 Galit started teaching Moving Body Awareness to people with and without dance experience, guiding them to awaken their body awareness and to trusting the flow of their own body’s movement
