Background

Fiona Millward ImageHaving worked as a dancer, teacher and choreographer since 1985 I continue to be inspired by the mediums of movement and touch, believing they offer an invigorating and intrinsic understanding of the world around us, as well as the world within.

My particular fascination with how each individual discovers greater physical freedom and expression has always underscored my work, leading me to explore and experience a range of approaches.

Alongside my work as a dance artist, I qualified as a therapeutic massage practitioner in 1993, Franklin Method® Educator in 2003, and studied with Polestar Pilates and taught for Dinah Siman at Contemporary Pilates 2002-2006.

My ongoing explorations finally led me to Rolfing® Structural Integration, where the process of embodiment and reflection resonated with this ongoing work. I am deeply grateful to Dancer’s Career Development who awarded me a Maude Lloyd and Rudolf Nureyev Bursary towards the costs of my final year of training.

I continue to enjoy teaching movement sessions drawing from these experiences in a variety of different settings. As a qualified Rolf Movement practitioner I also offer one hour Rolf Movement™ sessions and will be setting up group movement sessions in the near future.

_DSC2576As a Rolfer I value the form deeply and am excited by how it continues to develop and extend our understanding of human movement potential. I am also inspired by how it invites individuals into a process that enables them to discover and integrate an alignment and ease of movement unique to their structure and needs.
