BII: Body's Intrinsic Intelligence / Inner Waves: Natural Movement Principles

Beginning & All Levels 2017/1-WS11
1-Day Workshop
Feb 11, Sat. 10:00 3:00 p.m. Reception Hall
$75 / $60 CAM member
$90 / $75 CAM member after Feb 7


Instructor: Karola Lttringhaus

As a sneak peak preview into the BII INNER WAVES class we will take the first topic: Walking. This workshop gives us a closer look at the three-dimensional, multi directional interplay of the body's structures during walking and how it represents the foundation for all movements. Through walking we revitalize the spiral movement patterns that are genetically embedded into our structure: A well-coordinated walk allows for mobility in all joints, which reinstates the constant ebb and flow of tension and relaxation that helps us maintain a healthy and vivid dexterity into old age. We will look at anatomical models, imagery and explore the physicality of walking. Discovering the beautiful complexity in something so seemingly simple, we will then play with the transition from walking to creative walking and dancing! Weather permitting we will go for a walk on the museum grounds.
