Sensing Body is a mindful movement practice for performers and non-performers to increase bodymind awareness in daily life on and off the stage.
Anchored in embodied anatomy, expanded states of perception and addressed attention, I guide you to engage in subtle and playful movement explorations. You are facilitated to let go judgemental control and conditionings, as well as to gain endurance for attentive investigation. With time of practice, you expand your range of embodied experience - sensations, qualities of movement, states of being. You learn to tap into this enlarged bodymind awareness as resource for moving what and the way it needs to be moved in each moment. You learn to be receptive and give time to tune into the inner body, and to be flexible and courageous to connect with the outside. The regular practice allows a flow and outflow of energy, tensions and emotions that we inevitably collect in our bodies. It enriches the healing, expressive and creative power of the moving body.
