Mind Body Centering
We are all unique individuals and part of our genetic make-up is to honor that uniqueness within ourselves. And yet sometimes history influenced by genetics, trauma, illness, or injury can influence patterns within our body that don’t necessarily speak to our full potential as expressive human beings. Body-Mind Centering® is used as a tool to assist the individual to access new patterns of functionality and expressivity through mindful-consciousness facilitated through movement, voice and touch. The work can range from being very subtle in nature, incorporating the various anatomical and physiological routes into the body, or can also draw on more expressive components illuminating the psycho-physical connection.
This workshop will be split into two parts: finding the tone and vibrancy of the organs and then taking that awareness into sequencing movement through the support of the organs and how that rounds out our use of expressivity; and then exploring the transportation system of our body – the fluids (cellular, extracellular, transitional, blood, lymph, cerebral spinal fluid, synovial) – and how they play a major role in counterbalancing rest and action alongside our emotions.
Please note that the Free Flow Dance Centre is a vaccine mandatory facility this fall winter season. Proof of vaccination cards should be provided for in-person spots. Zoom is also available
