Conscious Touch is fun, encouraging and challenging. The day will include group processes, practices rooted in Tantra and play.

The facilitators aim to create a safe space, where everyone engages with respect and integrity. The workshop may involve some level of nakedness. There will be a strong emphasis on respecting boundaries and you always have the choice to take part or not, and to the degree that suits you.

Uma Laurence Clapdorp

“I am passionate about presence, conscious movement and continually exploring the themes of flow, connection, intimacy, inner voice and relationship.”  

I am a School of Being teacher, trained in Living Tantra with Jan Day. My work is rooted in Sensitive Dance which I have practiced for 15 years and trained in with Claude Coldy.

I am also a Free The Inner Voice Facilitator (Nikki Slade) and a Thai Massage practitioner. Inspirations include Movement of Being (Fanny Behrens and Colin Harrison), 5 Rhythms, Contact Improvisation and numerous precious teachers along the way, as well as being an Architect for numerous years, working in Nature Conservation and building Communities.

In a world of busy-ness and exhaustion, Uma Laurence offers a space for groups and individuals to

  • slow down,
  • land into our human body,
  • discover the responses and resources that arise moment by moment,
  • explore the space of our verticality as humans between Earth and Sky,
  • experience being fully present.

“Each time I have taken part in one of Laurence’s classes, I have journeyed deep into my being and emerged nourished and connected. She holds a very beautiful space for conscious movement both inside and out in nature. I would wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone who is seeking somatic congruence.”  Tara Hazel Loveridge
