In these two workshops we explore Body-Mind Centering* principles within Nature.
Due to the current situation this time we do not work hands-on yet we have the chance to focus more on our capacity to perceive each other and the surrounding through the space between; developing our ability to sense and feel the space. We work eyes closed, vocalising, visualising and experiencing our anatomical structure and body systems. In this journey we feel supported by our surroundings; the beautiful garden at the Salisbury Centre.
CONTACT with-in… touching the earth, opening the body to the sky
We work barefoot, but wear outdoor shoes in case that is not possible. Please wear comfortable clothes and a few layers to adjust yourself to the possible changes of the weather, bring water. Feel free to bring a notebook with you if you like to make notes or draw during the session. This event is weather dependent.
Don’t hesitate to contact me for any questions concerning the workshop.
Just email me at imprevistodanza@gmail.com
*Body-Mind Centering (BMCSM) is an integrated and embodied approach to movement, the body and consciousness. Developed by Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen, it is an experiential study based on the embodiment and application of anatomical, physiological, psychophysical and developmental principles.” (bodymindcentering.com)
