Eline obtained a PhD in dance anthropology at the University of Roehampton in London, studying the contributions of Movement Medicine to participants’ wellbeing and empowerment. She was a Research Fellow at Centre for Dance Research, Coventry University, for many years. As a medical anthropologist, she has conducted various studies on health and wellbeing from a social and cultural perspective, working with people with learning disabilities, burnout and depression, and other long-term chronic conditions. In her previous post at The University of Exeter Medical School, she focused on the development and implementation of patient-initiated care in the NHS. Eline also teaches site-specific and outdoor movement practices, for instance through forest immersive sessions. She is a trained Qigong practitioner. Qigong is a millennial old system of coordinated body-posture and movement, breathing, and meditation used for the purposes of health, spirituality, and martial-arts training. Qigong draws energy from great natural sources. In this session, Eline will be showing how to draw physical energy from the woods.
