As we grow older, we tend to move less and less naturally. When we set limit on our movement range, we are losing the optimal capacity of our brain power and limit our life too (keyword: neuroplasticity). So in this hour, we revisit our movement patterns and how these are reflective of our attitude in life. We allow inner themes to be expressed in movement. Get the mind off the way, and reconnect with our body and feelings.
Dance improvisation and composition, and awareness of how we use different movement qualities are among the tools we use. Note that we do not practice a learned choreography or dance steps.
All level of experience is welcome.
What we’ll do:
Understand & (re)experience our body connectivity patterns to reflect on our state of being,
Explore our natural movement patterns and from there, expand our movement vocabularies,
Practice awareness & improvisation using our non-verbal, expressive, movement qualities.
Increased body awareness, incl. activation & relaxation, exertion & recuperation,
Movement-based tools for grounding yourself and self-recovery from stress,
More creativity and expressive qualities to apply in your daily life (think e.g. assertiveness, presence, self-confidence, self-care).
