"Up & Down" is a movement workshop taught by Elia Mrak and Irene Lyon. 

Our unique workshop teaches you how to connect with yourself, others and the space around you in a profound and joyful way. When you join us you'll learn how to break free from familiar patterns of stress and tension through the art and science of movement.

A typical workshop day begins with a playful movement warm-up that brings us into an open state to learn. From here we spend the day in deep exploration, experimentation, and engagement with self and others through our movement principles and practices. Over the course of the day we reflect, integrate, and invite discussion and sharing of personal experience.

After many years of teaching we’ve found that no one ever wants to leave at the end of an Up & Down Day! This is a testament to creating a learning environment that is fun, transformative, and safe.
