A conscious movement practice developing mobility, strength and flexibility in harmony. This workshop will enhance your practice by developing your ‘movement/mindbody intelligence’ (helping you to learn and acquire skills quicker by increasing your body awareness), fluidity and grace in movement.
It will give you the confidence to move freely with ease. We will visit, learn and fine tune core bodyweight skills (press ups •sit ups •planks •handstands •bridges) in detail. Practitioners are challenged both physically and mentally in order to encourage self discipline and self enquiry.
Movement games and puzzles encourage interaction, body dialogue and co-operation which improve practitioners proprioception, body awareness, co-ordination. This reawakening of the 6th sense or ‘kinaesthesia’ develops the growth of the practitioners ’movement intelligence’ which ultimately makes the practitioner into a more practical, functional, competent and confident mover, quicker to adapt to different circumstances (like picking up different sequencing/practicing in small spaces) and learn more complicated skills (such as- arm balances, handstands, inversions).
