MY NAME IS STEFANIE-MAY HAMMOUDEH AND I AM HERE. I WAS BORN ON THE DESERT LANDS OF JORDAN AND CURRENTLY FIND MYSELF ON VERY DIFFERENT SOIL IN SCOTLAND. I AM OF MIXED HERITAGE WITH IRISH, PALESTINIAN, ENGLISH AND TURKISH BLOOD; A DELICATE DANCE BETWEEN MY INNER DESERT DWELLER AND FORREST NYMPH.
"START CLOSE IN, DON’T TAKE THE SECOND STEP OR THE THIRD,
START WITH THE FIRST THING CLOSE IN, THE STEP YOU DON’T WANT TO TAKE.
START WITH THE GROUND YOU KNOW, THE PALE GROUND BENEATH YOUR FEET,
YOUR OWN WAY TO BEGIN THE CONVERSATION. "
~ David Whyte
‘Stefanie is the most beautiful, soulful being who holds a field of magic and grace like few others.’
Matthew Liam Gardner
‘I attended Stefanie’s somatic dance and movement workshop. With Stefanie’s guides she led us beautifully through the movements and talked us through how we connect to the body and mind, it was a wonderful experience and I can say it’s been a long time since I felt my own body so deeply. ’
'STEFANIE’S CLASSES ARE PLAYFUL AND EXPLORATIVE. IN HER PRACTICE AND IN HER TEACHINGS SHE HOLDS THE CURE FOR CONTEMPORARY AILMENTS SUCH AS ANXIETY, FATIGUE AND BURNOUT. HER CLASSES ARE CONTEMPLATIVE, CREATIVE, AND HELD IN A VERY SAFE ENVIRONMENT. A COMBO FOR COMING BACK AGAIN AND AGAIN'.
