let the body speak
Ingrida has started her acquaintance with an alive and living body in 2017 in the Somatic Therapy programme in Vilnius, established by Linda Hartley and the Institute for Integrative Bodywork & Movement Therapy, London. While studying in the Institute she also began her studies of Authentic Movement Discipline in Germany at the private practice of her teacher Cornelia Schmitz (Circles of Four). The practice of Authentic Movement Discipline is what has become the axis of Ingrida’s everyday life and her work. It has brought a profound sense of recognition and awakened the desire to be closer to herself and her inner truth. Her deep commitment to this practice, the guidance of Cornelia and a passion for exploration of mysterious and mystical embodied experience help Ingrida to orient herself in the miraculous journey of life.
In the experience of others, Ingrida is first and foremost about being very close to herself. She is about a deep sensitivity that opens a safe space to be. She is also a wealth of knowledge and has respect for teachers, practice and the person standing before her today.
Ingrida’s life is full of creativity and art. Since birth she was in love with music (especially the sounds of piano and cello). Later on she played as accompaniment to children’s ensembles and orchestras in the Suzuki association. Ingrida also paints, writes articles and creates websites. She has created a 61 - card deck "Dancing with the Guidant Presence" to mark her early stage of somatic explorations.
The presence of Ingrida is always accompanied by playfulness and love for an authentic and curious nature of a child - the one that lives in the world and the one that is alive in our hearts.
Ingrida works with children. She is facilitating groups and individual consultations.

Ingrida is for me first and foremost about being very close to herself. She is about hearing what is her truth of this moment, about sensitivity, deep sensitivity next to which a safe space for being opens to others. I feel that Ingrida really cares for another person.
