Hannah Millar is an educated and passionate teacher, choreographer and mover. Hannah is internationally sought after for her award-winning choreography, including a Gold Telly and Gold Muse Award for her most recent Chukchansi Casino and Resort commercial. She has choreographed several commercials with her latest work showcasing community and family for the City of Ontario. Her creative movement has been celebrated by the ICU World’s Competition winning the Gold Medal, the Kidz Carnival Choreographer Ball, and the Young Tanzsommer Austria Tour. For Hannah, mindfulness and meditation are essential to healthy and happy living. Helping dancers to connect with their body, breath, and mind are the driving force behind her passion and fuels her purpose. The last ten years, Hannah has been highly intrigued with how our bodies move, through the lens of energy anatomy. She has enjoyed years of helping dancers understand how to move their bodies with ease and greater inner awareness. This curiosity in energy and anatomy led her to completing her 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training where her life shifted into a deep connection with meditation, mindfulness and finding a sense of peace within herself. She then attended a five day silent retreat which further deepened the importance of all these pieces for her. Hannah is passionate about guiding humans through movement and mindfulness, teaching them how to drop fear and doubt and live and move from an authentic place.
In 2011, Hannah started teaching dance to Jamie’s daughters at The Dance Company in Kingsburg, CA. Jamie and Hannah knew each other for years through dance, but it wasn’t until the last couple years that they became closer through their interests in spirituality, meditation and yoga. Life has brought them together and has allowed them to help each other discover their gifts and purpose on earth. Jamie has taught Orientation & Mobility to the blind and visually impaired since 2012. In 2020 she completed her 200-hour Yoga Teacher Certification from Coil Yoga, which further shifted her life and brought her closer into alignment with who she is. Relationships are important to Jamie; helping people to find their inner-strength and to trust themselves is her gift. Through Soul-Self, Hannah and Jamie hope to share with others the peace and strength they have discovered.
WHY PARTICIPATE IN SOUL SELF?
Through Soul Self, we hope to provide different portals into this feeling of presence and peace by engaging multiple senses — using the energetic feeling of movement and touch alongside sight and sound — in various exercises and classes. We won’t just talk about this sense of peace, but truly experience it, recognize it, and learn to incorporate it into our daily lives and dance. What will I gain from this workshop?
1) You will feel more in touch with your own intuition and inspiration. With all of our thoughts and worries, our minds are too loud, so we need to remove ourselves from those thoughts and instead feel the sensation of intuition and inspiration wash over us to quiet the mind and feel at peace.
2)Trust! Not only do we have to learn to trust ourselves, but also to trust the intuition and inspiration we receive. We need to be able to recognize intuitive feelings so that we can act on them and incorporate inspiration into our movement and lives. Trust that intuition and guidance will lead you to where you should be in life, even if you don’t know where that is yet.
3) Creating and moving without fear and doubt. We will guide you to move only from love and kindness and drop the fear that so often keeps us from feeling free and confident.
