“I am Camilla, I teach joy for living and conscious movement is my passion brought in this world as a language to come one step closer ourselves.
Soul Motion Foundations teacher, certified Nia Black Belt Teacher, Wellbeing Lifestyle Educator, trained in the Biyun-method Qi-Going – a more than 5000 years old Chinese healing method are some of the dry facts about me.
Dance was my preferred language from I was three years old and I am humbled to be carrying the torch of so many brilliant teachers.”
Camilla Steen Larsen passionately lives her dream of bringing dance as lifestyle to the world as an entry to come one step closer to ourselves.
She believes that every single one of us are unique and make a difference. Camilla brings over 30 years of experience in teaching movement, dance and life change. She is the founder and creator of the Mastering of Self training.
“Mastering of Self training was birthed through me as a way to live life in less not enoughness and much more worthiness.”
She began teaching hip/hop and aerobics in 1989 which set her on a path that includes multiple body-based trainings and the eventual creation of Be moved studio in Copenhagen where she teaches and shares her work of conscious movement as a way of living.
In 2006 after a big life change Camilla went to Nia® International Headquarter in Portland, Oregon where she met the founders of Nia and took her first belt the Nia White Belt. The path was chosen. She knew that the bridge between dance, expression of self, along with the stillness and presence from Qi-Gong was found. This led her all the way to becoming a Nia Black Belt teacher.
In 2010 Camilla opened lovely StudioNiaCph – now Be moved – with the intent to create a space for all of us to come home, land and let go of any accomplishment, the tone was set for making Joy of movement a conscious choice and in coming unveiled stepping out of the habitual learning through the body.
After opening her studio Camilla met Soul Motion® and it took a long, inspirational deep dive and staying a student attending as many workshops she could for five years before she stepped in to the Soul Motion School program in 2015. Camilla became a certified Soul Motion teacher in 2017 and is now part of staff at the Soul Motion School as alumni coordinator supporting graduates in their continued practice, assisting at teacher trainings and serving as mentor coordinator.
Mastering of Self Training is a 6 month training birthed through me as a way to live life in less not enoughness and much more worthiness.
I matter • you matter • we matter.
Camilla has an interesting life story and her personal journey has led her to teaching joy for living, bring shine on shame through the at times edgy terrain of conscious sexuality brought in the open. Camilla is a great inspiration for many people, her courage to see and be seen in her vulnerability.
She is invited to facilitate on international dance floors across the globe connecting communities of different movement modalities in a creative, raw, honest and loving way. Her heart strongly beats for the power of leaning into the arms of community to learn from one another – in our true colors.
”Camilla is such a powerful soul. You can’t help being positively affected by her unbelievable energy and her amazing mood. She is an outstanding teacher and there is no one else, who can make me dance the way I dance when I am at Be moved. It is where I feel there is room for me – just the way I am – and where I am challenged as well. I love Camilla’s teachings!”
”I often come exhausted or tense and stressed to class, when I leave I am filled with energy. I am in contact with myself and I feel that I have more than enough in energy and calmness. Camilla has such a contagious energy and she is an amazing teacher. She allows every one in the room to be who they are and she has a great deal of integrity. Her classes are always a total energy boost for the body and mind – and nevertheless a playground for the soul.” ~ Mette
