Embodied Groove is an interactive movement experience designed to enhance the benefits of live music
Embodied Groove was created by Dr. Leah Taylor to help guide and inspire live music fans to dance like no one is watching even while surrounded by thousands of other fans.
Freeing & Fun!
Leah’s guidance was non-invasive, gentle, and warm. It allowed people to experience the movement of their bodies in an environment that lacked judgment, was freeing, and fun!

I have to say the effect of the embodied groove set was palpable from the moment we got on stage. It felt like the crowd was fully locked in and engaged with the music.

Melding Music & More!
My experience with Leah’s Embodied Groove was really positive. It took me from a mundane morning of plotting and planning into a blissful state of “living in the moment.”

Make it part of my life!
Dancing is one of the best ways I know for aligning mind, body and spirit. Embodied Groove takes this concept to the next level by combing structure and focus with flow, movement and deep listening.

Grounded and Ready
I found my body waking up and transitioning to playful rhythmic movement and eventual full on communal dance party with any remaining hesitations or residual self-consciousness dissolved.

Embodied Groove opens the portal to another dimension of sensation and deepens the connection between performers and audience in remarkable ways.

Embodied Groove is a full mind-body-spirit experience combining the powerful Integrative practices of Movement, Mindfulness, and Music to activate the release of the body’s natural “happy chemicals,” also known as dopamine, endorphins, oxytocin, serotonin, and endocannabinoids. These are considered the “neurochemicals of happiness
In the beginning, I used substances to loosen up and open to the flow, to get out of my head and into my body. As I got older, this didn’t align with my own self-care, so I turned to my Masters in Somatic Counseling, PhD in Mind-Body Medicine, in-depth embodiment work, and 15+ years of teaching movement to create a movement practice that helps anyone discover their own unique groove and the joy of moving to live music.
“When you can find freedom on the dance floor, you can
experience freedom in your life.”
