about lisa firer mindfulness and movement
A warm welcome!
While pursuing a career in the ceramic arts, I’ve always had a parallel process of exploring and offering movement and awareness-based modalities.  Focused on embodied learning, my approach is strongly rooted in mindfulness.
I trained to facilitate the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction programme at the University of Massachusetts, USA, Centre for Mindfulness in 2005 and have a certification in developing Mindfulness-based Interventions from Stellenbosch University, South Africa. Mindfulness is a foundational leadership quality and I have had the opportunity to introduce mindfulness to organisations and educational institutions such as the University of Cape Town Graduate School of Business and other executive leadership programmes. Since 2013 I have developed and run Creative Awareness, a mindfulness-based elective for postgraduate students of entrepreneurship, marketing and sport science at the UCT school of management studies.
I’m also an internationally accredited Biodanza facilitator, a system of human development using music and movement. Stillness-Dancing is an integration of mindfulness and dance-movement.
My latest offering is Clinical Somatics. This system teaches gentle awareness-based movements that support the body to release deeply held contractions, tensions and stress. It is also a system that supports any other movement practice bringing ease, fluidity and undoing habitual patterns.
