LiquidBody In Person Classes



 

LiquidBody Movement classes and workshops approach moving from a fluid perspective using simple breaths and sounds to catalyze whole body mobility all the way to the cellular level.   With the resonance of your own voice you get your cells vibrating in targeted ways to amplify the physical sensations of subtle, mostly slow motion movement that guides your movement exploration of the inner fluidly-formed landscape of your body.  Less about moving through space or creating shapes or gestures, and more about moving from the inside out or relating to sensations of yourself as responsive, organized dancing cells, you start by following your own body’s cues for where you can discover movement within simple seated and reclining positions eventually moving in a full range of relationships to gravity.  This strengthens mind/body awareness and allows each individual to move in harmony with their own structure gently releasing tensions and old habits while building a capacity for more and more adaptability and resilient whole body strength.    Movement becomes information about who you are, where you have been and where you can go.  It nurtures and feeds your body with increased circulation, adaptive structure/strength, released and generated energy, dynamic potential and a deep sense of being able to feel more of yourself than you had previously experienced.  It feeds your brain with new sensations, expanded neuromuscular pathways, deep relaxation and invigorated creative potential.
