Kurs with Ixchel Mendoza Hernandez

We start the class with softly connecting with each other and with the space. We continue with slow exercises on the floor, opening the body joints, making the body accessible. The class builds up easily, slowly getting into real motion. Through out different movement sequences, we will soften the body to then take the space sliding, rolling and finding diverse ways to get up and then back down into the floor. It´s perfect for people looking for an energetic and refreshing evening. In this class you will strengthen your body, and at the same time move with fluidity and speed.
