Roosa Sofia Nirhamo
The class will start by opening up all the senses by acknowledging and directing the breath which is then connected to the movement itself. Roosa works with the fusion of fluidity and groundness and the mixture of strength and softness. The class focuses on level transitions – going from the floor, all the way up to standing work, while keeping fluidity and working with the momentum of movements. She puts importance to the directional changes of movement and weight, as well as shifting the focus from the inner body to the outer space.
