She continues to share her knowledge with educational programs as well as some of most prestigious contemporary dance companies and educational institutions world wide. These include the Netherlands Dans Theater, Gothenburg Danskompani, and Tanz Theater Wuppertal Pina Bausch, all of which incorporate Heidi’s Stream-Flow Movement method into their daily practice.

She is the founder of Stream-Flow Movement Method, defined as therapeutic and mindful way for dancers to reconnect to their bodies. Stream-Flow Method is currently expanding it’s practice to work flexibly for All Bodies and to continue to create conversation with Visual Arts, Design and Science.

Currently Heidi and her team are in collaboration with Harvard neuroscientist Anna Riley Shepherd, to measure the benefits of Stream- Flow Movement Method. This process includes measuring baseline brain indicators of health and wellness, before and after research periods.

Class
Heidi’s stream – flow method has an intuitively progressive guidance that allows me to discover a sense of full body freedom and interconnection. Through imagery and sensation it provides an in-depth look at how each part of the body, when examined clearly and simply, can be a catalyst for naturally occurring, complex movement.

After taking the class, I feel new movement channels open in my body and a heightened awareness for what it means to be fully present in my own movement research. Streamflow is a mindful ,regenerating and game-like method to move attention through different parts of your body. Originally developed as a form of “body rescue” for dancers at professional companies across the world, founder Heidi Vierthaler is now expanding the practice to work flexibly for all bodies. It can involve lots of movement and sweat, but can also be done while sitting at your desk. It can keep you entertained for hours, but 5 minutes is already enough for a Reset.

Research Lab – Open call * deadline past
Bad Lemons Project invites dancers to apply for a Research Project with Heidi Vierthaler as part of the OASIS project. Working with 3 artists. During her research period in Munich, Heidi would like to dig deeper into researching the functional body via her Stream-Flow method. The focus will be be on shifting our habits and how we approach our everyday movement tasks and patterns. This is also connected to her current collaboration with Harvard neuroscientist Anna Riley Shepherd, to measure the benefits of Stream- Flow Movement Method. Their process includes measuring baseline brain indicators of health and wellness, before and after research periods. The work in Munich will research making Stream- Flow available to anyone that loves to move, or is seeking to get out of their heads and into their bodies.
