The Feldenkrais Method Ⓡ is an innovative system of movement education. The intention is to learn greater ease and efficiency of movement. A major theme of this method is that movement is life, and life is movement. When we find more comfort in our movement, we find more comfort and pleasure in our life.
This dance class considers ideas from Feldenkrais Method and Contemporary Dance practice. The class begins with gentle breath work and moves towards light mobilization of the skeletal structure in various orientations low to the ground. From there we explore short sequences involving rolling in and out of the floor. The speed of the class picks up as we engage direction to locomote through space. Image rich and sensation lush, the vibe of this class is fun-work.Some ideas guiding the process are: ‘don’t try too hard’ & ‘look for pleasant sensation along the way’
