Move To Heal provides arts-based movement and mindfulness classes and experiences.

Move To Heal South Dakota dance and yoga classes are filled with music, joy and healing actions tailored to meet the needs of each group or individual. The health benefits of Move To Heal South Dakota reach beyond the physical to include the emotional and spiritual aspects of a person, restoring a profound sense of well-being. We provide group classes in health care and community settings.

We believe that we can’t heal what we can’t feel and when you begin feeling, you begin healing.

Through our movement and mindfulness opportunities we share practical and effective tools to help regulate your nervous system, strengthen your emotional resiliency, and allow a sense of hope to restore your body.

Move Better Feel Better Classes | Adults

Move To Heal SD volunteer instructors lead participants through chair yoga classes every Tuesday and Thursday from 11:00 – 11:45 a.m. CST. 

These classes are free and open to the community and hosted at our location sponsor: Faith Lutheran Church (601 N Cliff Ave, Sioux Falls, SD 57103). 

We are engaging caregiver organizations, senior support organizations and active aging groups by inviting them to join us. We typically have around 6-12 attendees at each class since we launched in the fall of 2021 and there is space / chairs for more people to try it out!

Dance Collective | Public Arts Experiences

Move To Heal SD presents a collective of Sioux Falls, S.D. artists that use movement-based art through dance to tell stories, entertain and promote healing. There are typically 20-minute dance pieces and 10-minute Public Art Experience components in each performance.

Performances take place throughout the year in health and community settings, with some open to the public and others taking place at organizational staff training days or conferences.
