Please join me as I guide a group of curious movers through a 12-part series on the basic movements of childhood development, dynamic neuromuscular stabilization (DNS) breathing, fascia release, and somatic sensing. This course is based on scientific studies and principles, but also experimental and exploratory.
The MRI series is for anyone interested in the building blocks of movement, and may specifically appeal to yoga practitioners, dancers, and body workers. We’ll analyze and practice simple movements like rolling over, crawling, sitting, squatting, and walking, in conjunction with DNS breathing, to create a movement practice that is transferable to daily life.
We’ll also practice general principles of movement such as undulations, oscillations, elastic recoil, falling, and moving through spirals, figure eights, and circles.
We’ll explore body puzzles that challenge us to think outside the box, finding solutions to movement riddles. These puzzles are wonderful ways to create a sense of connection in groups, as the individual becomes part of the whole, sharing an experience of the group moving together.
There will be some partnering exercises, exploring touch as a medium for deepening our capacity to heal and be healed.
Upon finishing the course you will have more ideas, experiences and practices in your toolbox, which you can easily integrate into your own classes.
When you purchase the series you will be given access to a secret Facebook group. Videos of each class will be posted in the group, along with complete notes. You’ll be able to ask questions and share with the group your own observations as well as ideas on how to integrate this new movement into your current teaching style and practice.
“I do not believe in styles anymore. I do not believe that there is such thing as the Chinese way of fighting or the Japanese way of fighting or whatever way of fighting…because styles tend to not only separate man, you know, because they have their own doctrines and the doctrine became the gospel truth that you cannot change. But, if you do not have styles, if you just say ‘here I am as a human being, how can I express myself totally and completely?’ Now that way you won’t create a style because style is a crystallization, you know, I mean that way, it’s a process of continuing growth.” Bruce Lee
