Holistic Approach

As an actress,  Margherita Peluso wanted to explore a more holistic approach to acting. In her exploration journey, she decided to go deeper into a healthy way of acting. Using drama to heal in order to discover our true nature. Ayurveda and yoga study, rituals and anthropological research was a life-changing experience that she is now using in coaching and workshops.  Discovering Lucid Body had been an eye-opening moment for Margherita Peluso, finding for the first time a way to transmit authentically the emotions, but also to be able to set up bounderies, knowing our limits and become free and independent working actor. An holistic approach to acting and for life.  With personalized coaching sessions and a tailored approach to each student, Margherita Peluso is dedicated to help everyone who wants to  achieve and discover the full potential.

Lucid Body allows those who follow the practice to explore, uncover hidden parts of themselves, dig deeper and fly higher

Lucid Body technique is a psycho physical process developed by Fay Simpson. I will be teaching LB in order to guide you on a journey of self exploration and release. Using the chakra energy centers as tools for understanding and expanding our idea of the Self , each coaching will offer exercises to widen our range of self expression to cut through the habits that keep us limited . For the brave actor or anyone interested in self transformation.

It is based on the idea that self-knowledge is the number one focus of your acting. Lucid Body is a psych-physical process that can offer an actor the building blocks of a new language to further develop a character through diagnosis and full embodiment. A process of self introspection and exploration that will help you change your emotional and physical habits, and expand your acting potential.

“Lucid Body is really amazing because it gets you very much in touch with yourself. You get to explore yourself. You get to know yourself better. And you get to explore the full range of human emotions which you don’t normally get the chance to in normal life.”
Ana M.

“Lucid Body is very stimulating. It’s a lot of work. It’s helping me expand myself. It’s helping me grow as an actor. I’m working through every chakra. It’s very intense. It’s extremely gratifying.”
Alexander Ananasso
Lucid Body Workshop
We laughed, cried and excavated our hearts and souls, and explored persona, shadow and layering of character. We played, danced, swam and stretched the tension out of our bodies and minds in this beautiful Sicilian landscape.
