WHO IS THE Professional Training FOR?

Our Professional Training is open to those who have completed a Movement Medicine Apprenticeship Programme in which you learn to apply the principles and practice of Movement Medicine to yourself and your  life. This prepares the ground for learning to hold space for others. 

Applicants for the Professional Training will also need to complete the Embodied Listening self-study course. You can expect a high-intensity training in which you get to 'see under the bonnet' of how and why Movement Medicine works. You will part of a diverse and committed circle of fellow trainees.


To pass on the skills of holding space and guidance for other people to grow, develop and flourish, using the principles and practices of Movement Medicine. Our expertise is about how to teach this on the dance floor, so that will be a strong focus. However, we feel that these skills are transferable to any situation that requires movement of any kind.


  1. You want to train to teach Movement Medicine as an accredited Movement Medicine teacher or integrate Movement Medicine into your existing movement teaching.
  2. You want to take the training to become an accredited Movement Medicine Facilitator in order to be able to use the principles and practices of MM to hold space for others and apply/translate/integrate this learning in your own field of expertise and work.
  3. You wish to take the training for your own ongoing study and are not sure where it’s all going to lead.


10 days of Intensive Study in a wonderful venue, including DJ skills, teaching practice, safety, trauma awareness, and so much more! It's going to be a ride!


At the end of Module 1 we will discuss your plans with each one of you. For some of you, this will involve beginning to teach depending on your previous experience. All students will be asked to complete one community service give-away project, which will need to be documented in some way. There will be four Zoom sessions with staff to support you in your work. Once a month there will be Zoom sessions with peers for peer reflection.


Training Dates: Fri 7 - Sun 16 March 2025

Your second 10-day intensive will give you the tools to deepen your practice and your capacity to hold safe, transformational spaces.


Your time as a Movement Medicine Teacher in Training or Facilitator in Training will begin from the time you begin to teach or apply the work. This period will last for a minimum of 18 months. In order to be accredited as a teacher or facilitator, you will need to:

  • be in supervision with a member of a Movement Medicine Professional Mentor
  • teach or facilitate for a minimum of 120 hours
  • complete a research project of your choice relevant to your professional development as a Movement Medicine Teacher or Facilitator
  • be assessed at the end of your time as a teacher/facilitator in training
  • stay in once-a-month Zoom sessions with peers to give and receive support
  • adhere to the School of Movement Medicine Code of Ethics
  • have up-to-date first aid qualification
  • assist Susannah & Ya’Acov and other experienced Movement Medicine Teacher - an essential component of training
  • have taken part in three Long Dances

Costs during stage 2

During this time you will need to cover the cost of your supervision, insurance, first aid training, assisting and Movement Medicine Association membership. When you assist you will need to pay for your food, accommodation and travel costs. There is a charge for the graduation process and you may need extra supervision in preparation for this.

Assuming you complete your work to a satisfactory level, you will then be accredited by the School of Movement Medicine - and you'll be able to take your place on this website! In order to maintain your status as an accredited teacher or facilitator of Movement Medicine, there are ongoing requirements, such as ongoing supervision and continued professional development.
