About Us

Movement Medicine International



Welcome to The School of Movement Medicine. We are Susannah and Ya’Acov Darling Khan and we are the founders of Movement Medicine and the Directors of The School of Movement Medicine.


Since 1989, we have been travelling the world encouraging people to move beyond their held patterns and self-limiting expectations and discover themselves and their gifts through movement. In order to do that, we’ve had to do exactly the same ourselves.

Our journey has taken us to meet and work with some extraordinary people. We have studied with healers and shamans from the Amazon to the Arctic Circle, including an 18-year apprenticeship with Gabrielle Roth.


We know for ourselves how important it is to be part of a supportive community in order to grow, and we are happy that Movement Medicine is becoming such a space. We feel that every one of us has something unique to offer the world that we are part of, and that in offering it, both the self and the world are enriched.


Susannah and Ya’Acov are the authors of Movement Medicine – How To Awaken, Dance and Live your Dreams (Hay House). All books and CDs are available from The Movement Medicine Shop


Movement Medicine in Berlin


The first Movement Medicine Workshop in Berlin happened in  2009.

Since then there has been a growing circle of dancers, and many events have happened. You can find a list of our past events here.

Since 2014 there are at least three international Movement Medicine workshops in Berlin, since 2016 there are also workshops by German teachers on offer.

We grow and learn from and with each other.

Doing so, especially the diversity of teachers coming to Berlin has been a treasure for the local community in Berlin.

If you want to come for the first time, you are very welcome!

It is a good idea to join one of the open evenings prior to the weekend workshops.
