What Is Open Floor?
Open Floor is an embodied movement practice bringing self awareness, mindfulness, and purpose to life.
“With no dance steps to learn, we will follow instincts and simple invitations to spark curiosity. Dancing to a varied musical soundscape, we’ll move to find presence…to question…to feel and allow possibilities to emerge in the moment.” Ann Shuptrine

Developmental Movement Patterns
According to Bonny Bainbridge (BMC), all mind patternings are expressed in movement, through the body. And all physically moving patterns have a mind. That’s what I work with.
Move and Include
As we practice, we learn to move along these Continuums:
- Fixed and Fluid
- Habit and Choice
- Move and Include
- Open Attention
I believe that the world needs embodied, empathic, creative and authentic people. I strongly believe in linking instead of ranking, in collaboration instead of competition. In equality against hierarchy. Embodiment is key and basic in life because we perceive all of life through the body and our physical, emotional and social inherited patterns. Instant knowing and decision making seem to be more and more important in a fast running digital world. When we can reach that creative moment of being present in the here and now with whatever is there, everything changes!
“All that she has learned, all of her life up till now, has all been about freedom.” Heidi Sawyer
“She brings adequate class instructions following the groups flow, as well as clear instructions individually. She motivated many woman to reach their goals in a short period of time. ” Frieda Wawer
“Zij weet met haar intelligente creativiteit je diep in je ervaring te brengen. Kom proeven, kom dansen, kom ervaren!” Monika
