The Vitaleurythmie Network

We want to continue sharing and developing the Vitaleurythmie concept – through dialogue with fellow eurythmy professionals. Our intention is to explore aspects of Vitaleurythmie together, to convey didactic skills, and to use learning-by-doing as a basis for developing a concept for imparting information that incorporates group dynamic processes.

We would like to discuss exercises and methods, and to gain insight into one another’s experiences. “Eurythmy resources and their use in relation to the topic of stress” is a very broad field, allowing productive dialogue and debate that is also important to scientific research.

Together, we can achieve things we would never manage alone! This is why we are especially interested in establishing a wide-ranging Vitaleurythmie network.
