Jason Yates will bring Therapeutic Eurythmy movements to support the immune system. Eurythmy therapy developed out of eurythmy as an art. The therapist studies eurythmy for four to five years, then spends several years developing the art into a therapy. Eurythmy has for its vast vocabulary all the sounds of speech and music, all transformed into gesture. Eurythmy therapy is an active therapy done by the patient themselves once the exercises are learned from the therapist. Because eurythmy’s vocabulary is so large, the effects of eurythmy movement meet many needs, illness, developmental difficulties, physical and mental challenges. Those who practice eurythmy therapy find it stimulating, soothing and satisfying, and it gives a sense of agency in self-healing.
