De-Stress with Interplay

Trying Interplay

I first tried Interplay 15 years ago. I felt very hesitant as I wasn’t into crowds, socializing in groups or generally being my full self around others. To my surprise, the form of Interplay allowed me to experience all of those things with ease. Within two hours, I was so delighted that I spent the next decade and a half traveling around the country (and even in Australia) to get my Interplay fix.


When things are going well in my life, Interplay helps me enhance that joy, fun, and connection. When I’m struggling, it gives me support, affirmation, acceptance and often a cathartic, healing experience.


Interplay is famously difficult to describe, and that’s probably because it’s not a verbal experience. It’s a rare opportunity to notice, accept and honor our body wisdom. The safety and comfort of Interplay is that we take things slow — and empower you to only try things that are right and best for you and your body.


After all these years of finding Interplay elsewhere, my wish is to bring it to Columbia. I hope you’ll come play with me. We will move, babble, notice, play and express. It may be like nothing you’ve experienced before, at least as an adult!

Interplay is about relaxing, de-stressing, exploring and creating. We will move, notice, babble, and connect. It’s famously difficult to describe, because it’s more about the spirit and body than it is about language and words. When people are asked to describe their experience, they most often say, “fun” and “peaceful.”
