Description

This course jumps right in with three cohesive, 20-minute, standing movement practices.  These practices are a non-traditional approach to vocabulary based in Qi Gong and peppered with elements from Tai Chi and Tribal Fusion dance.  They can be done in a small space, even wearing work-clothes if that's how you like it. 

Accompanied by a unique sound-score by music-for-movement composer Michael Wall, and filmed in the scrappy tropics of Providence, Rhode Island, the idea here is that the body is profound and movement practice is meant to be something interesting, delicious and part of an inspired life.  

Who is the target audience?
  • Looking to integrate exercise without it being tedious or non-sustainable?
  • Looking for a different flavor, a fresh approach to contemplative movement?
  • Interested in a fluid series of low-impact movements that are as profound and beautiful as they are practical?
  • Tired of gimicky, new-agey, aggressive or super-sexy approaches to exercise?

A brief description of class #1.

Preview 00:29

In this 20-minute class, we will explore some techniques to mobilize the joints and activate energy in the extremities.  We will play with fluid weight-shifts, balance and sequencing movement through the spine and limbs and visit some simple imagery to clear negative thought forms...all in the context of smooth movement vocabulary that helps to build strength, flexibility, agility, awareness and overall good health.

Welcome to Class 2!  

Preview 00:26

In this 20-minute class we will wake-up awareness and circulation in the skin and superficial fascia and learn a simple meridian-clearing exercise.  We will open up range-of-motion in the ankle and knee joints, lengthen and strengthen the side-lines of the body, practice mobilizing and sinking into the hip joints and initiating movement with the hips and pelvis.  We will explore sequencing movement through the spine through flexion and extension and so much else!...All while floating and grooving to Michael Wall's atmospheric compositions.

Welcome to Class 3!

Preview 00:28

In this 20-minute class we will delve into more subtle sensation and movement as we mobilize the torso around a stable base and practice the difficult art of releasing tension from the arms and hands.  We will practice moving from a connection to our root through the entire length of the body and work with subtle and sensuous hip work that feels delicious and can help release small, deeply-invested muscles in the pelvis.

I bring 15+ years of formal training in the contemplative arts; sitting meditation, (Tibetan Bon) the internal martial arts, (Aikido/QiGong) dance, (Middle Eastern/Improvisation) and poetics as well as eight years of professional experience as a Rolfing Practitioner/Somatic Educator to my teaching.  The sense of peace and empowerment that can be gained from engaging practices that encompass all aspects of person-hood: physical, energetic/emotional and spiritual is priceless. Over the years, I've developed protocols that emphasize a balanced, light-hearted approach and a blend of elements that is neither overly formal nor lacking in technical detail.  I'm excited to contribute my voice to an international community online!
