Practicing Embodied Leadership On and Off the Dance Floor

Michael Moli-Skelton.jpg

Soul Motion™ is a practice, a philosophy and a pathway to coming home to the master teacher within us. From this place we all become greater leaders, more influential in our ‘non-doing’ – in our being – because we are in a state of relaxed presence. Relationships blossom, our mind becomes more focused and our communication is enhanced. In the everyday dance of home life and business, Soul Motion™ principles cultivate a culture of heart and soul centered leadership.

 The Soul Motion™ School can help you bring Soul Motion™ to your community by connecting you with one of our Soul Motion™ Ambassadors – certified Soul Motion™ Teachers who are qualified to lead workshops. Find a workshop or class near you here.
