Moving cloud class draws from my personal movement research of shadow yoga, release technique and somatic practice. The class will consist of open explorations often using improvisation as well as set material. Improvisations guide us into various movements which aim to give awareness of body in space, and space in our body. This class is a journey to find unconscious ways of moving and discovering different places in our body, giving a chance for the rest of body to observe unexpected, unconscious movement. The classes also involve working in pairs. Set material works with abandoned and regained energy to create certain dynamics and momentum.
** Booking is essential as spaces are limited.
