Through detailed research and investigation, this class will encourage an opening of the energetic channels of the body. From an open and aligned physical structure, we will investigate movement based upon breath, internal energy, flow, suspension, center-shifting, bouncing, momentum, spirals, and joint rotations through simple exercises and traveling phrases. Special focus will be placed on transitions and floor work. Together we will explore and cultivate tools to activate our daily studio practice in new ways.
The first 50 seconds of this video features Shen Wei’s Map, a work highlighting the elements that are the basis for his Natural Body Development technique.
