Self-expression beats depression
"ITS MINDFUL MOVEMENT MEETS PHYSICAL AND CREATIVE EMPOWERMENT MEETS HAVING FUN!”
CIMPLAY was born out of injury and my passion for movement.
From London's Hip Hop clubs of the 90s to grainy dance throwdowns in Brooklyn to dusty old Latin tracks sampled for their grooves, my influences span decades and cultures. These influences blend with my experiences as a Londoner, dancer, Pilates trainer, movement educator and fitness expert.
After many recurring dance injuries and subsequent operations, I was forced into period of rehabilitation where I took the time to think about all the attributes of Pilates, holistic movement and athletic conditioning, and experiment with how I could combine them into a new style of training, that would be non impacting for the body. As our lives have got busier and busier, we’ve all fallen into roles we think we should fit into to conform to society. We’ve forgotten how to express ourselves and release the playfulness within all of us. I coax this out by helping you get in touch with your surroundings and people around you, to look at your surroundings with creativity and inventiveness.
The CIMPLAY experience is an outdoors movement adventure, releasing the mind, whilst incorporating a sense of forgotten play.
Our experiences are designed to help people come out of their sitting shells, show you new ways to interact with your urban environment whilst, inspiring you to express your burgeoning creativity in the city!
