Open-minded souls, dance artists, musicians, healers, health ambassadors, scientists, and whoever is into self-exploration and inquiry.


My field of interests and research is about the human and nature. And touches arts, science, spirituality, philosophy.
The main purpose is in moving into a deeper connection to yourself and your human nature, through exploring the body and mind. So into inner and outer connection we heal.
We aim to create a supportive community that fosters personal growth, creativity, and a deeper connection with oneself and others.


Moving Joy is an embodied journey that dives into the profound connections between the body and mind. By proposing a diverse range of conscious practices and including both movement and sitting meditations.
This practice stems from my passion for exploring well-being not just as an individual journey, but as a collective vision of flourishing - a concept known as EUDAIMONIA.

What I do

About the Class

Moving Joy is a life practice and my main goal that gets me to wake up every morning. They are continuous lessons to return to yourself, through connection with the body and interiority. Training the mind to observe the body and refine the embodied experience.
Moving Joy is the practice of experiencing the union of the Body-Mind, in a perception of oneself free from an idea or a form.

I like to combine my expertises as a dance artist and traditions from Taoism to Buddhism, nuances to experience being in the body and feeling joy.


In the various sessions we will explore conscious movement and full attention to the body (Mindfullness of the body), in a union between:

  • Qigong
  • Moving and dancing meditations
  • Sitting meditation
  • Practices of Taoist internal smile and unconditional laughter
  • Sounding and vocalising
  • Somatic exploration of the body’s Meridians according to MCA (Ancient Chinese Medicine)
  • Discussions and sharing


5 Element Cycles
We’ll explore the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) 5 element cycles, delving into the interplay of guided movement sequences inspired by Qi Gong and free dancing. This exploration aims to enhance vitality, energy, and harmony within.
Dynamic and Static Meditation
Discover the art of centering through dynamic and static meditation, allowing you to cultivate a profound connection with the present moment.
Unconditional Laughter

Monica grazie per la bella lezione di questa mattina. Tutte le volte mi dico..ma perché mi devo alzare che si sta cosi a letto…però poi mi sento bene, mi sento più leggera, specialmente quando ci fai ridere, mi sembra di ringiovanire. Mi è piaciuto molto quando hai detto che quando ridiamo il diaframma si muove e stimola il cuore, praticamente lo fa ridere…che bello !!! Non ci avevo mai pensato, mi è piaciuto tanto, grazie ancora


Ho iniziato con la mia stanchezza, ma devo dire che stamattina mi sento piena di energia. La sensazione è di iniziare la giornata di buonumore


Quando abbiamo iniziato a praticare la risata incondizionata ho sentito di iniziare a lasciare andare le tensioni ed ho iniziato ad aprirmi, espandermi…abbiamo appena finito l’ultimo incontro di questo percorso di Risveglio gioioso, sento ancora la sensazione forte di espansione del mio corpo e di leggerezza
