Embodied Asana classes are based on sensing your body, breath and movement from many different perspectives. We will use asana as a form and container for exploring the embodiment of our tissues, the seeds of our embryological origins and the developmental patterns that supported learning to move in the first year of life.
Using principles of Body-Mind Centering, Space Harmony, Bartenieff Fundamentals, and Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation you will be invited to discover the anatomical, kinesthetic and energetic relationships within the body, and between the body and breath, that can support your experience of being present in your body, recognizing your patterns and cultivating curiosity about making new choices.
This class is an opportunity to bring your questions and curiosities about your baby's movement patterns - we'll use principles from Body-Mind Centering to explore the movements in our own bodies and playing with the little ones.
This movement class explores developmental patterns in the context of our adult bodies. Moving through these patterns in our current bodies can help us understand our movement choices and offers a way in to adding more choices.
Informed by a Body-Mind Centering® approach to developmental movement, Adults is an opportunity to consciously re-engage with the early learning process of finding our way to walking. Each class will start with rolling on the floor and sequence through several developmental movement patterns on the way to standing upright.
No previous experience with developmental movement or Body-Mind Centering is required.
Embodied Anatomy & Kinesiology course
In this course, we will focus on the bones, joints and ligaments that provide support, allow movement, and transmit weight and force through space. We will travel through the body addressing structure and movement from an experiential perspective, using principles from Body-Mind Centering, Laban Movement Analysis and the Bartenieff Fundamentals, PNF and various yoga practices to discuss principles of alignment and therapeutic applications.
Each trimester covers a different part of the body: The fall session focuses on the spine, the winter session focuses on the lower limb (foot to pelvis) and the spring session on the upper limb (hand to scapula). Class involves both discussion and movement.
The A&K Asana class that follows is based on the topic that is being taught in the Embodied A&K class, and is an opportunity to see how that material can be integrated into an asana practice.
