Working with Anna’s Halprin somatic approach to relax the body-mind.

“Imagine how exciting and alive you would be if your kinesthetic sense were to be heightened and cultivated beyond its present consciousness.”  – Anna Halprin

As we enter into spring, we’ll explore movement pathways structured around the pelvis to enliven and encourage a sense of support and vitality.

What can our pelvis tell us about being grounded, flowing, and enlivened in life and art? Working with Anna’s Halprin somatic approach, we set aside time and space for ourselves, to relax the body-mind, to tune in to sensations, and explore pathways that connect the pelvis to other parts of our body.

Our focus is on expanding our kinesthetic sense and generating creativity. By paying attention to how we move, we awaken our aliveness, enjoy our vitality and carry our dances into daily life. Through the tools of the Life-Art Process, we become aware of our physical, emotional, and mental responses, and we integrate our experience through drawing and writing.

No dance experience needed, only a willingness to explore! Please have a comfortable space to move, and drawing and writing materials on hand.
