Have you ever felt a tingling, expansive energy in your body?
That is what I call a state of soulful embodiment, when the cells have activated into a fluid state, and the container of our skin is malleable. It is a feeling I describe as being connected to source energy, while being deeply rooted in my body.
This class is a journey crafted to reach that activated state. We will use visualization, improvisational movement, vocalization, imagination and play - to feel open, elevated, creative and hyper present.
And it is not about letting go of thoughts, rather, we create a connection between body and mind to engage the mind in an inner awareness, follow curiosity and act on creative impulses.
This work is from my personal practice, and it is an integration of things I have learned in the past 30 years: from Modern Dance and Contact Improvisation, to Laban Movement Analysis, Body-Mind Centering, and Feldenkrais, and then informed by movement trance states I have reached through drumming, ecstatic dances and plant medicines.
This is a beautiful and empowering way to start your day - with an expansive energy that is rooted in every cell of your beautiful body.
Open to all levels and abilities - you will interpret my suggestions however your body wants to.
Wear clothes that allow a full range of movement, kneepads if you like to dance on the floor, a water bottle, and a journal to reflect on your journey afterwards.
