« I give great importance to conscious corporeality, subjective reflexivity, movement authenticity, and the mindful devotion to what makes us move. »
In 2020, Tiffany started to research in the field of dance and healing with her essay Behind & Beyond as an autodidact.
This ongoing inquiry unites movement phenomenology, metaphysical unity, philosophy, psychology, spirituality, and scientific approaches. Arising from a choreographic project on that matter, she started to transmit her holistic approach to dance and movement with her practice entitled Transcendental Embodiment to dancers and movement lovers, as well as to the people who are seeking psychological and emotional support through the practice of dance.
« My general contemplations are the questioning of being and its surroundings. My last motivation is to produce entertainment. I feel an urgency to raise existential questions and denunciate inconsistencies in our contemporary era. I am strongly animated by the essence of life and what there is beyond: philosophy, psychology, metaphysics, esotericism, spirituality, and sciences. »
