Movement Medicine® Founder

Meet Susannah

In this video, Susannah explores the question: "Why is Movement Medicine?" She talks about awakening the physical and simultaneously spiritual experience of being fully alive and how movement is a path for reconnecting with ourselves, with each other, with the natural world and the spirit of life itself.

Co-Founder of Movement Medicine

Susannah's life is dedicated to the quest for a world where beauty and compassion flourish. While navigating various paths including medicine, academia and organic farming, she recognised the transformative power of the interwoven awareness of moving body, heart and mind.

Dance emerged as the soulful pathway to embody this profound connection and to share her love of life. She has been teaching movement as since 1989. Susannah's background includes: Anthropology, Gestalt Psychotherapy, an 18 year apprenticeship with Gabrielle Roth (founder of 5 Rhythms) and Family Constellations.

A soulful Pathway

Susannah runs the School of Movement Medicine together with husband and co-founder Ya'Acov Darling Khan.

She is committed to making the healing power, depth and subtlety of Movement Medicine accessible to people worldwide, including via: the Movement Medicine Study Hub, online courses, 'in person' teaching, plus, along with Ya'Acov, deep professional Movement Medicine training.

Susannah's Embodied Listening work carries the signature of her profound yet practical approach to human transformation and evolution.
