Discover new ways to subtly move and bring in the awareness to stop unwanted habitual patterns with lessons based on the teachings of Moshe Feldenkrais. These subtle exploratory movements focus on how movement is performed and bring to light internal connections within your body. Private Guided Movement Lessons are customized to your needs, and use a combination of both verbal and hands on guidance. Group Movement Lessons are primarily verbal. Lessons are performed on the floor, with a chair or standing.
Developed by Juliu Horvath, Gyrotonic exercises are carefully crafted and flow from one movement to the next using custom designed Gyrotonic equipment that provide additional resistance, feedback and support. These exercises develop coordination, balance, efficiency, strength, and flexibility with full range movement for the entire body without compression. Exercise progressions start with simpler movements and work up to more challenging ones. Sessions are private and use a combination of both verbal and hands on cues.
Contemporary ballet technique that does not require a dance background as taught by Gene Marinaccio with a few extra variations. Exercises or actions focus on moving from the inside out and building strength using internal connections. In this class more stress is placed on finding and incorporating these internal connections than on how the actions are externally performed. Private lessons can focus on whatever actions you would like to improve. Classes follow a ballet format and actions are performed on the floor, at the barre, and center floor.
Learn to move with new freedom, strength and presence. Guided Movement, the GYROTONIC® Method and Marinaccio Technique are all tools that can be used to increase balance, strength, flexibility, and most importantly find the awareness in movement that will allow you to consciously move with integrity, not just in the studio, but through life as well.
How do you move? Do you move freely? Is there something holding you back? Everyone holds unconscious tension in their body throughout the day. Learn how to break down movement to an infinitely smaller universe, and discover how to free up tension subtly without unnecessary force.
All sessions, lessons and classes are suitable for all ages and levels of movers. Everyone is encouraged to start from wherever they genuinely are.
