Body-Mind Centering

Kurs with Julia Kleinknecht, Ka Rustler

Through anatomical pictures, movement, perception and touch we will explore bodystructures and movement. We place our attention into different qualities of tissues and move from there: bones, organs, nervous system, endocrine glands, fluids, muscles, senses and voice. In the journey of developmental movement we explore movement possibilites from one celled animal to being a walking human. We will discover how different patterns overlap and support each other and give a ground for our movement and being today. With finest and deep awareness of different bodytissues, through touch and understanding of antomical relationships in our body we evoke presence, threedimensional full-body being for joyous movement.

Due to the current situation, we will not work with mutual physical touch in the class, in case the class takes place live.
