Shivani Soares

Shivani brings warmth, depth, aliveness and authenticity to all her offerings, from Movement Medicine group sessions to 1-1 coaching.

Having an MA in Dance/ Movement Psychotherapy (Goldsmith's College, UK) and trained in Movement Medicine, Shivani has been dancing for more than 13 years, and teaching Movement Medicine for the past 7 years in Lisbon and Aljezur (Portugal), London (UK), and online.

Her approach blends and drinks from Movement Medicine, 5 Rhythms and DancingTao, ISTA (International School of Temple Arts) and conscious sexuality, psychotherapy, meditation and satsang with Mooji and Ganga Mira.

Combining science (she has a degree in Medicine) and embodiment practices, spirituality (she lived with Mooji for 5 years at his ashram, and has been attending satsang with Ganga Mira) with sacred intimacy, polarity and conscious sexuality (she trained with ISTA and tantra teachers), one can say that she is an intrepid explorer of life and its paradoxes and wholesomeness.

Spirit, soul journeys, freedom, authenticity, intimacy, love, masculine & feminine, dark & light, are themes she keeps coming back to, questioning and surrendering to the wisdom of life, and daring to meet the edges & the core with curiosity, love and presence.

Upcoming Events

'Shivani's workshop was next level! I felt very curious and trustful of Shivani as I had witnessed how she can read a group and hold a very special energy together. It would take a few pages to describe all the intricacies and layers of what this weekend brought me, but in a nutshell I can say that it was profoundly transformative. Shivani held a very sacred space where all of us felt safe and welcomed as we were, at that moment in time. Thank you!' - Naya
