What is Sound & Movement Sanctuary?  

A new initiative created by myself, Devaki Anne-Marie Thomas, in October 2020. Sound & Movement Sanctuary offers.... 

~ Movement Psychotherapy, one-to-one & group sessions - Learn More HERE 

~ Workshops in Therapeutic Movement & Sound - Learn More HERE 

~ Online & in-person sessions in Movement, Meditation & Sound - more info HERE

~ Collaborative music/dance projects & performance - more info HERE 

My aim is to create a trusting creative environment where individuals can explore and gain a deeper understanding of their emotions and thoughts through moving their body and using sounds in hopes of healing past and present traumas. Sessions I offer in Therapeutic Hatha Yoga, Odissi Dance and Rhythm & Voice all feature therapeutic approaches using methods of somatic awareness, attunement, empathic movement and mirroring learned in my 3 years’ training in a Masters in Dance Movement Psychotherapy.

Welcome to my new space!!  

After years of dreaming I have finally built my own website to share my new venture, Sound & Movement Sanctuary, and my lifetime thus far in the arts! I would be so honoured if you shared a few words of blessings and let me know where you are in the world and what you are up to! 

Much love always
