Description

“Unnecessary effort accompanying an action tends to shorten the body” — Moshe Feldenkrais

The posture of dancers has been admired by many. If mastered with length it is the foundation for free movement and expression. If accomplished with tension, it interferes with breathing and balance and can lead to injuries. In this workshop, we will explore how to move without effort and discover how owning our full height improves flexibility, balance, and breathing, and surprisingly allows us to access our strength like never before.
