energy flow - contemporary class
I am teaching a mix of floor work, contemporary dance and technique excercises in standing .
My main goal is giving a good warm up class , making the body ready for the day. You can find dance phrases ,space for improvisation as well some Pilates and Yoga exercises within my class. I would like to share my idea of constant energy flow inside the body and guide it outside of the body into the space.
Movements spreading into space , taking space, letting go of the mind and focus with mind and body in the present .
I will give phrases and exercises that will guide you through this class, where the focus is on fluidity and non resistance and effortlessly. Giving directions through the space and internal impulses for a movement to happen.
Energy work is a part of the class. Knowing the amount of energy one needs for producing movement and when to let it happen from within the body. We use the momentum to go through movement vocabulary and try to avoid working with too much force . We will work on organic phrases wich allow more breathing in the body. The focus is on own movement quality and going deeper into our intuitive and expressive body without judgements.
Sensuality, simplicity and honesty in the movement is what i would like to share.
