Ingrid Skoog

Ingrid Skoog has been practicing and facilitating movement meditation circles for almost 20 years.

Though she loves both yoga and seated meditation, she finds nothing takes her deep into heart/ body-center and stillness faster than Authentic Movement.

Ingrid also enjoys leading Empathy and Positive Communication Practices and "Into Essence Collage", as well as coordinating Bliss Wellness Retreats.

Ingrid Skoog instructs the following:
  • Movement Lab (All Levels)
  • There is great Joy Potential in unrestrained movement and self expression.

    Touchstone Movement Lab rotates focus each week, with 4 rotations of movement cycling in led by different instructors. You may join in the fun at any time!

    Read about each focus below.


    Exploring primal movement allows the thinking mind to disengage and makes room for a deeper connection with the inherent wisdom of the body. Movement gets us out of our heads and into our bodies present moment awareness. Join us on this exploration of free movement and its joyful potential for healing.
