Rosie Perks

Rosie offers a place in which to land and explore that is safe, non-judgemental and expertly held, her guidance is both sensitive and clear. She works with both groups and individuals, in the room and online.

Rosie has over 30 years of experience as a dancer and many years teaching movement internationally. She is a senior Movement Medicine Teacher, a professional mentor and previous faculty member of the School of Movement Medicine.

As one of the first cohort of trained Movement Medicine teachers she developed her work on the pioneering edge of this practice. Her teaching is interwoven with many years of personal practice; alongside an understanding of our shared humanity and additional training in Processwork. Rosie gently encourages the emerging voice as extra support for the body in motion, she provides a space to dance that is safe and expertly held.

Rosie lives in Devon, UK with her husband of 25 years, teenage daughter, dog and 2 cats and spent many years running a small graphic design agency. She grew up here, in the South Hams of Devon and finds the land, rivers and seas here to be one of her strongest resources as a Movement Medicine teacher. She is never happier than when walking her dog or cuddling her cats - or dancing!

“I am beginning to understand the purpose of my teaching to be in creating an environment in which we are able to allow ourselves to simply exist in each moment.  When this happens and we are not trying to be more or less than we are there is a magic of interconnection that makes the breath between us alive and open. What I see happening in this space is people wake up to their right to exist and to the possibility of really being with others in the simple truth of our humanity." Rosie

"Rosie offers a safe place, a place of permission, permission to be, to explore, where everything is welcome. This enabled me to go to places I don't usually go, to take risks I don't usually take." Jasper Drent, The Netherlands
