In this class we will explore physical sensations of joint alignment, in this case focussing on the knee. Listening to alignment is a window into deep, expansive movement, and in return, movement is a window into deeper listening to joint alignment.
Through class we will expand our exploration from the joints or meeting places in your body to the ‘joints’ between yourself and space / others. Listening is the gateway to movement, connection, play and spontaneous creation.
