Authentic Movement SF

The Authentic Movement SF sessions and events provide a safe space for you

to connect with your body and express your Self. 

 Maria warmly guides you through simple, though powerful, movement and creative  explorations

that encourage even the shiest part of you to relax and enter in a flow of wellbeing.

Come to move freely, play, create, explore your feelings, 

rediscover and embrace the wholeness of who-you-really-are.

In our time together you will be able

to listen to your intuition, receive pure, raw inspiration,

and trust your inner wisdom that guides you to fulfill your desires with more joy.

Learn to Listen to Your Intuition and

Let It Guide You to Living the Life You Want

What Movers Say



Authentic Movement is a practice that relieves stress, creates a sense

of space, safety,

and joy.


Performance Artist

Taking a class with Maria in Authentic Movement is like finding a long lost guide who helps you journey into

your own soul.


Software Engineer

After participating in the practice I was

more in tune with

my body and 

I realized it has

a whole world

of information that

I rarely listen to.


Massage Therapist 

I have my art work on my fridge, where it continues to remind me of the joy and freedom I experienced in the encounters. 

Nobody can teach us how to be authentic. We need to unlearn and rediscover who we truly are.

And we need the space to do that. Authentic Movement is this kind of space. 


If you are looking:

  • to discover the best version of yourself

  • more meaning in your life

  • a better sense of peace within yourself

  • to explore what you have to offer in life



Then you are looking to enhance your connection with your Self, your essence, 

and express who you truly are.


Authentic Movement has provided this for many people.

Come and experience it for yourself!

"Your visions will become clear

only when you can look into your own heart.

Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside awakes."

Carl G. Jung
