Bodies of Resource: Dance for Health

A moment to breathe and stretch, whenever you need it, in this new relaxation video designed exclusively for us.

Take a moment to close your eyes, and breathe. Now breathing can often feel like a complicated thing. Rest assured it’s not. You will always breathe in, you just need to let the breath out a little bit.

Filipa Pereira-Stubbs, CUH lead dance artist

We’re excited to share with you the first of a series of four films from our Dance for Health Programme. This film is an invite to all staff, volunteers and practitioners across our hospital to take five minutes for yourselves. Filipa gently leads us through some gentle, seated movement to release tension and find some deeper breath. All you need is a chair.

In this film series, we are extending the reach of the Dance for Health programme, aiming to reach a wider audience. This includes staff, primary care patients, and patients awaiting treatment in our hospitals. It will also provide an opportunity for those who have taken part in the programme on the wards to continue to find ways to move in a comfortable and restorative way.
