BODY ART MOTION (BAM)

~ MOVE FROM THE HEART ~

Since 1998, Body Art Motion has been on a mission to provide inspiration to explore body, mind and heart through art and mindfulness in motion. Our specialized classes and programs are unique, informative, relaxed, and down to earth – backed from 25 years of experience in movement arts and personal growth studies.

Tanya Lee created Body Art Motion from a passion to share and support the journey of self-actualization through expressive movement arts and lifestyle transformations. Over the years, her work and projects have explored a variety of body-mind disciplines from athletic training, Pilates and martial arts to Critical Alignment Therapeutics, yoga and transnational dance. With the support and love of the BAM community, this body of work has evolved to integrate these movement arts plus Improv Team Sync Dance, meditation and lunar-based astrology.

The BAM vision is to integrate functional ancient wisdoms into a modern soulful lifestyle that aligns with the natural rhythms of our planet. The mission is to simplify complex formulas into functional and inspirational programs that are easy-to-follow and adopt into modern daily life. We offer a variety of services to help support our growing community including self-paced online courses, private coaching, and our private Patreon hub with video libraries and regular inspirational vlogs from Tanya Lee.

MINDFUL MOVEMENT

From vibrant group dance to deep solo yoga; from moves born on a festival dance floor to gentle healing discovered at home on the mat – Tanya’s custom blend of spices aims for an adventure of body, mind, heart and soul. Beginners are always welcomed.

NATURAL CYCLES

Explore the universal language of life force energy, tides of the cosmos, and patterns of nature. Implement wisdom from the moon phases our ancient ancestors used to develop systems for time and mental/physical health. Discover for yourself what is still relevant and effective today.

PERFORMANCE ART

This is where we cultivate the freedom to feel expressed and to study concepts through archetypal embodiments. We welcome you to join us for the journey of interpretation, storytelling and spiritual connection through movement, costuming, music, poetry.
