Welcome to The Everything Space!
A somatic education and embodiment studio weaving personal growth and dynamic social change.
The Everything Space is a collaboratively run movement studio providing skillful and accessible somatic education, curated by Abbi Jaffe and Amanda Franz. We are dedicated embodiment activists, passionate about somatic education, community building, and more.
We are committed to unleashing the body’s intelligence to co-create a more resilient world.
We acknowledge the global implications of climate crisis, collective trauma and embedded systems of oppression and we aim to unite personal growth and dynamic social change.
We offer classes, consultations, individual sessions, performances and creative space which create opportunities to listen deeply to the wisdom of the body, express grief and celebration, and rewild ourselves for the purpose of inhabiting and supporting more resilient communities.
We are in this, with you, as humans, together.
Embodiment: the act of listening to the body’s senses and responding to the body’s cues for movement, as well as cultivating an awareness of and connection to one’s self, others, and the environment.
Somatic: the lived/felt experience as a body. ie. connection of bodymind
All of our offerings are sliding scale and trauma informed.
Everyone is welcome.
We welcome a wide diversity of people from the mainstream culture and beyond. We are an anti-racist organization and work to support a culture that can positively accept each other. Our practice is diversity positive, queer positive, trans positive, sex positive, alternative relationship positive, body positive, trauma informed and we hold a worldview that encompasses an understanding of systemic oppression and strive to make our services accessible.
"I have been to a couple events here, done a private session and have done a Contact Improv Dance 8 Week Series with Amanda. Every gathering, every class exceeded my expectations.
This place and community has helped me remember what it means to feel at home in my body and in myself. " - Bill St.Cyr
