Come into the wordless community---

  • Dissolve stress
  • Clear your mind
  • Energize your body
  • Drop into profound intimacy with yourself and others

    Open the door of possibilities.
    Below the words...

  • Our bodies know everything.

  • Our bodies are continuously communicating with us.

  • Our bodies' language is called "sensation."

  • As we remember how to listen and respond to sensation, we can discover --- everything!
  • Gain Insight. Relief. Balance.
    Real power lies within!

    Join Fred Sugerman, an expert in guiding people deeply inside- for a powerful body - based inquiry into healing and well being. This workshop will visit deep stillness and silence. It will include more active movement, reflecting on the outside what is occurring on the inside. Mindfulness techniques, with the inclusion of breath and music, will leave you feeling physically exhilarated, mentally stimulated, and spiritually uplifted.

    Special Note to Health Care Professionals
    Health professionals who participate in this workshop will leave with tools to help clients to reduce stress, lower heart rate, boost immune functioning, manage pain, relieve depression and anxiety, and to promote a greater overall sense of well being.

    Fred Sugerman
    Fred Sugerman's training includes the Dance Alive® system, which looks at the parallel relationship between different systems of the body (i.e., fluid, muscular, connective tissue, and skeletal) and how we live our lives, alone and in relationship with others.

    Originally a professional dancer and actor, with credits in Los Angeles and New York in theater, film, and television, Fred's background includes extensive training in improvisation, emotional release, sense memory, natural sound and voice production, classical and modern dance, Alexander Technique, and various forms of relaxation.

    Through his work and his personal life experience, Fred has embraced the therapeutic effects that having permission to fully express one's usually hidden internal life through movement and dance can provide, along with the benefits of feeling wide awake in the present moment.


    This class offers a verbally guided
    and music-accompanied exploration of capturing present moment thought, feeling and sensation and allowing them to be expressed through the body.

    This class meets Saturday mornings 10:00AM - 12:00 noon @Continuum Studio in Santa Monica.
