ELECTIVE WORKSHOP: CONTEMPORARY RELEASE
This session invites participants to listen deeper to their body, to connect to the most basic pleasure and the desire to move. They will be encouraged to connect to inner fragility and weakness in order to tap into awakened availability and strength. Practice of awareness is an emphasis, allowing the body away from its habitual locking or tension, along with multi-layered stimulus to move and to be. This class structure includes verbally-cued movement exploration and set movement sequences.
Class Level: Intermediate
