Feet First: 9-12pm
The tap roots of a tree are deemed as of primary importance. They dictate the vitality, flexibility , strength and longevity of the tree. Our feet are no different. Starting at the feet we ascend up the body to the ankles, knees, hips and pelvis in a variety of movement patterns aimed at bringing a childlike buoyancy to a full self . We offer the movement initially in a solo conversation, graduate into playful partner exploration and finally bodywork gestures.
Our innate instinctual movement is rhythmic, spiralling and energising . Exploring the five elements of Chinese medicine and Chi gung principles we look at ways to stabilise our entirety and increase our life force. The 5 elements gives us a great template to unravel the mysteries that guide us to our full potential. Let’s allow life to be our teacher. Solo and partner work involved. This includes a small therapeutic sequence targeting the lower back
