'The Body's Intrinsic Intelligence' is the title for my approach to movement. We explore and experience the intrinsic intelligence of the body, working in tandem with the beautifully designed parameters and guidelines of the human body in motion.
Looking at human anatomy, physiology and bio-mechanics, this methodology is based on how our skeleton and soft tissues collaborate in order to facilitate human movement and how we can preserve these structures for life-long freedom of movement.
The articular language is chronological, fluid and efficient, which is achieved by finding organic ways to generate kinetic energy and maintaining and channeling this energy through the body's natural pathways while establishing the greatest structural support value in the participating structures.
This comprehensive workshop/lab is broken down into theory, discussion and movement application elements. The workshop provides helpful information and exercises we can use with our clients, covers requirements in anatomy/kinesiology as well as self-care.
The course covers basic theory observed on skeletal models and through gentle movement explorations. Topics explored include: oscillations, ROM, individualities and commonalities among moving bodies/structures, joint actions, passive and active motion, 3-dimensional movement, helical principles, touch and signal transmission, arches of the body, walking mechanisms, launching and landing areas, safely and efficiently entering and exiting the floor and more. This introductory workshop/class is an open lab and welcomes discussions about the principles and ideas presented.
Participants should be prepared to move, write, draw, and to challenge their preconceived notions on the purpose of movement and common exercise regimens. Wear comfortable layers of clothing that allow you to adjust to various temperature and activity levels throughout the day. The atmosphere is non-judgmental and fun.
Class is structured to fit into one day from 9am-5pm.
