Bové is excited to partner with like-minded organizations and companies to design movement workshops and/or curriculum for your group or upcoming community event.
The life of an artist is just as rigorous as it is creative. At Bové, we want you to be able to do what you do best for as long as you can. We will develop a custom program for you (or your group) after observing you and your work. We will enhance what you are doing well, and strengthen areas of weaknesses to achieve and build a sustainable practice.
The body has a beautiful way of showcasing the interconnection of individual and community. This interactive workshop uses the learning of the body as a metaphor to create conversation, share stories, and establish an environment of collective movement. Participants will be led through various movement experiences that challenge both their bodies and minds. No previous movement experience is necessary, just a desire to move and connect.
Bennalldra is an Integrative Movement Specialist and birth doula that believes movement is our universal first language and the body is our greatest teacher. This belief has been foundational in the development of both her community and private practice.
She comes to movement coaching with over two decades of concert dance and teaching experience, including her work with Cleo Parker Robinson Dance Ensemble, Alabama ballet, and the New York based Urban Bush Women. She has a BFA in Dance and Exercise Science, a level 2 Gyrotonic certification, she’s a level 3 Franklin Method Educator, and received her Pilates training from the Kane School of Core Integration. She has also completed Functional Anatomy for Movement and Injuries at Mt. Sinai.
These learning experiences help cultivate her specialized wellness programs for those with such conditions as osteoporosis, scoliosis, multiple sclerosis, cancer, foot and ankle dysfunction, disc fusions, herniations, and ACL and Meniscus rehabilitation just to name a few.
Bennalldra’s love of learning about the body has also fueled her doula practice, which got started after her learning with Mama Glow and Manhattan Birth.
Her goal is to help people demystify their bodies in a way that helps them be their most Balanced, Optimized, Vibrant and Expressive selves, which is why she created Bové, a wellness initiative that explores the intersectionality of movement science, education, art and activism. She is also currently the movement coach for Urban Bush Women and other dance companies.
