In this class we will be sensing in and reaching out. Landing into the surfaces of our bodies and landing into contact. We will make a practical study of the muscle chains which offer support as landing pathways. Applying our exploration to contact with another ‘body’; this may be the body of a human, wall, chair or other surface, depending on our level of comfortability with human proximity.
This practice should inform and empower movers of all abilities to feel safer and more spacious in falling, leaning and weight bearing.
