Berit Einemo Fr°ysland
The aim of this morning class is to fully prepare ones mind and body for the day, engaging with physicality and technique. A short mindful meditation begins the class and provides a gentle start of the day, bringing the mind and body into the space. A warm up with yoga influences, followed by dynamic standing and floorwork exercises, joins physicality and technique into a dynamic expression. Music from all genres inspires energy and drive to enter a flow of movements. Giving every part of the body attention, we work on fine-tuning our instrument in an individual manner. By reducing stress, the focus is put on how to move efficiently and with self-confidence. The last part of the class is dedicated to a longer sequence from my own chorographical repertoire. Drop in is possible.
