MOVEMENT FOR WELLNESS
Movement for Wellness offers the dancer of all ages, a chance to slow down, breathe and listen to the body and its needs. Somatic modalities are invited into sequences focusing on basic principles of Feldenkrais, Yoga, and core strengthening, along with gentle TheraBand and foam roller exercises. The benefits of Qi Gong and Tai Chi are incorporated as well. Emphasis is placed on moving with the breath and mindfulness, followed by quiet contemplation and meditation. These classes are focused on self-care and also offer a unique opportunity to build community.
Dancers are led through an imagery and sensation-based improvisation practice warm up inspired by the Israeli movement language, Gaga, and somatic modalities. Then, imagery and sensation are put into context in dynamic choreography. Students will discover new freedom and textures in their movement as well as an invigorated sense of play.
