SOMATIC PRACTICES

SKINNER RELEASING

No experience is necessary to enjoy this innovative approach to creativity and the healing arts (yoga, body work etc.) which promotes postural alignment, movement efficiency, and tension reduction. This class weaves poetic imagery, music & tactile exercises to integrate the whole self and tap into the creative process for each individual.

Skinner Releasing Technique™ (SRT) is an innovative approach to dance and movement training developed by Joan Skinner in the early 1960s. SRT utilizes image-guided floor work to ease tension and promote an effortless kind of moving, integrated with alignment of the whole self. Tactile exercises are used to give the imagery immediate kinesthetic effect; spontaneous movement is frequently evoked by imagery and movement studies. SRT smoothly integrates technical growth with creative process. Through the 1970s, Releasing technique was taught by Joan and the American Contemporary Dance Company, primarily in Seattle, Washington. The work continues to be taught and practiced today, deeply influencing many contemporary movement artists.

FELDENKRAIS

Awareness Through Movement® (ATM) lessons are an amazing way to learn to move with more confidence, elegance and power and improve the quality of all your actions. Specific verbally guided movement sequences present an opportunity to recognize personal movement habits that enable you to move well and also those that interfere with your intentions. The lessons range from early learning of infants and children to highly complex skills required for sports, yoga, performing arts and the martial arts. An atmosphere of non-judgment allows individuals of a wide range of ages and abilities to learn at their own pace. Moving with attention you experience a surprising ease in coordinated action. The process stimulates your innate intelligence and ability to self-correct, improving breathing, balance, flexibility and your ability to spontaneously do what you want with precision!

These ATM lessons will be specifically geared toward dancers, focusing on placement and flexibility.
