Move and Be Moved.

Through a unique hybrid of yoga, meditation, and improvisational movement, DYB helps people reconnect with the body and clear the mind.

Therapist and choreographer Rachel Fleischman’s guided movement therapy classes restore, awaken, and refresh. This isn’t a butt-kicking workout — classes focus on joyfully reuniting with the body, not punishing it. In a friendly, welcoming, supportive environment, Rachel leads participants through four key stages of movement — a program designed to alleviate stress and foster well-being. Participants leave feeling centered and empowered.



In day-to-day life, we’re limited in the ways we move through the world. We go through the motions -literally: getting dressed, making coffee, commuting to work. In a world where many of us spend the majority of our days slumped in front of a computer, necessarily disconnected from our bodies, it’s become increasingly important to carve out time to reconnect. DYB helps people do just that.


DYB introduces motion that goes beyond the same old routine, bringing attention to every part of the body through guided improvisational movement. Class participants are given general instruction and guidance and are then free to collectively explore that on their own terms all within the safe, inspiring, nurturing environment of the studio.  DYB is centered on the belief that there is no right or wrong way to move — just move! Classes are relaxed, joyful, and fun, and set to a great soundtrack that makes it easy to find your rhythm.



Each workshop begins and ends with a guided meditation to help you let go of the day and enter a calm and centered feeling.



DYB classes offer all kinds of great benefits. Just one class can:

  • Improve energy and vitality
  • Inspire a happier, more joyful outlook
  • Build confidence
  • Improve body image
  • Help battle depression
  • Ease pain
  • Improve sleep
  • Develop mindful awareness
  • Lower blood pressure


What to expect

Great music. A safe and friendly environment. Always. A hybrid feel. Yoga, jazz, modern, samba, and African dance inspired movements all come into play. Then, when your creative juices are firing, we classes tap into drawing, guided meditations, writing and art-making.
