She has been teaching circle dance since 1995, both in Brazil, where she is from, and here in the United Kingdom. Ana is an occupational therapist and a lecturer in occupational therapy. She holds a PhD degree (University of Bolton) for which she investigated circle dance as a medium to promote well-being.

Do I need any special clothes are equipment?
No, just wear loose, comfortable clothes that are comfortable to move around in.
How much does it cost?
The circle dance session, (including admission to John Hofton’s Healing Sound Bath from 10.30am-11.30pm) lasts for 2 hours and costs £15 (+ booking fee) to help towards the huge cost of running and maintaining the Monastery, which is a charity. We do, however, have a small number of fully subsidised places available for those experiencing financial hardship. If you’d like to apply for a subsidised place, please send your request to email@example.com
