I begin with release-based movement and breathing. I am interested to create a ‘sensation’ in the body and awareness of ones own weight against gravity. This state of awareness takes us through the class as we move into a curving and swinging of the body, using the limbs as weights flying through space. I also like to engage the use of the hands and upper body as a weight support which will be used in the movement sequence as well as in the falling and spreading work that I do (also working with the concept of “using” gravity). Above all I like to get air flowing through the body and through the movement so there is a sense of expansion in all that we do.
