My Story

MINDFUL COMMUNICATION CAN BE AN AMAZING JOURNEY OF SELF DISCOVERY... LEARN HOW TO COMMUNICATE EFFECTIVELY WITH TECHNIQUES  TAUGHT BY  INSTRUCTOR MAISHA DYSON

 

Hello! My name is Maisha Dyson and I teach people how to deliver their BEST performance. I am a Certified Movement Analyst (CMA), fellow Actor, Entrepreneur and Educator.  

My clients have included Authors, Entrepreneurs, Actors, Corporate Executives and other Professionals that required coaching for presentations, pitch meetings, interviews, stage, film and on-camera appearances.

Pulling the best performance out of you is my goal in all of my courses.  As a Movement/Performance Specialist,  I use comprehensive knowledge to identify movement patterns, convey the 'what' and 'how' of any human movement (along with text) and prepare people in numerous fields for active participation in the world.

As a CMA, I possess an acute understanding of a specific movement event and its complexity and context... I have the ability to:

◦ Understand and appreciate an individual's movement patterns and relates to and works with that in mind.

◦ Refine and expand one's movement repertoire by deepening movement awareness and understanding, and by providing the experience of a global range of movement within diverse environments.

◦ Assess human movement within an individual, group, cultural, situational and environmental contexts.

◦ Dissect  others' movement style within a variety of contexts, including social interaction.

◦ Observe, record and interpret movement data using Motif, phrase writing, and recording from digital and live observation.
