Tuesday nights, 7:15-8:45   November 2 -December 14

(6 weeks). No meeting Thanksgiving week but you will have that digestive system humming!

Cost: $90-120

The organs of the body bring an aliveness and presence to the body that you won’t want to miss out on in this lifetime!   Experience how the organs of the thoracic andabdominal cavities as well as the brain play a vital role in overall posture, tone, and movement.  As you explore the embodiment of the organs through movement and awareness you’ll naturally deepen your authenticity and organicity in your relationships with yourself and others.

Them Bones Them Bones (The Skeletal System)

Tuesday nights,  7:15-8:45    September 21-October 26  (6 weeks). Just in time for Hallow’s eve!

Cost: $90-120

The skeletal system is a brilliant structure of the body, especially when used according to its design!  Experience for yourself how the bones of the body can best be used to support weight and to articulate movement for better alignment, integrated movement, and effortless locomotion through space. We will study the lower limbs, upper limbs, and axial skeleton of the body and attend to how fuller embodiment of the shapes of the bones and their articulations transforms movement both globally and specifically.

Each class will have a particular central focus or theme, with emphasis on helping participants to directly experience what is presented from the inside out.
