This class focuses on developing body awareness and feelings of embodiment using a slow and gentle approach that emphasizes sensation, imagination, and listening inside the body. We explore a variety of movement concepts sourced from multiple techniques from the instructor's training including, always with an aim toward increasing the student's ease of movement, their release into gravity, and their embodied imagination. This class is appropriate for beginners or anyone who likes to go slow.
This class aims to introduce the student to basic movement patterns in ballet with the interest of activating and developing core stability and length and flexibility in the limbs. Through simple exercises set to up-beat music this class will challenge and build coordination, strength and musicality. We will incorporate yoga exercises at the end of the class to cool down and open the body. Open to all levels.
