Celebration of Movement Brunch Series: Patterns of Connectivity

Celebration of Movement Brunch Series: Patterns of Connectivity

from 55.00

What does “movement” mean to you? In our Celebration of Movement Brunch Series it means connectivity, embodiment, integrity, and playfulness.

Madeleine Reber will lead a 2-hour workshop in Integrative Movement and Bartenieff Fundamentals. Think of it as Yoga, meets Free Form Dance, meets Improv, meets Tai Chi. Through guided somatic experience, structured forms and exercises (on the floor, standing, traveling), and improvisational exploration, we will practice essential developmental patterns that underpin efficient, fluid movement.

1 hour brunch will follow inspired by the same themes found in our movement practice! This is a three-part series; attend all sessions or just the one that speaks to you. NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY!

Session 2: Head-Tail and Upper-Lower Patterns

Discovering connections through the whole spine, from head to tail. We find length, suppleness, connection and alignment. We work with clear center of weight and moving from there. Themes of Grounding, Attention and Intention, Homologous movement, Yielding to find support. Resilience and strength

Check out Session 1 (Aug. 11th) Session 3 (Oct. 13th)!
