Movement Invitations

Invitations to movement, relax muscles, dance and connect with your body and your baby.

We are working in partnership with Sport in Mind and Dance Reading to run some relaxing, recharging and reconnecting dance and movement classes designed for you and accommodating your baby and their needs too.

Dance teacher and mum Mafê Toledo delivers gentle and uplifting movement classes for any ability, for free! We will be starting up again when the weather and the guidelines allow, in Christchurch Meadows park.

In the meantime, find some time for yourself and your body with these short invitations to movement. Find a space, some loose comfortable clothing and get moving. Start with a 'relax' video, for a problem part of your body and then move on the dance video. You can come back to these again and again!


Meet Mafê, our dance teacher, and find out more about these invitations to movement.
