“an approach to basic body training that deals with patterning connections in the body according to principles of efficient movement functioning within a context which encourages personal expression and full psychophysical involvement.” -Peggy Hackney
When & Where: Wednesdays, 6:30-8:30pm, February 20th thru April 10th in ENS 200 at SDSU
What: In this series, we will embody research of each of the 6 Patterns of Total Body Connectivity through movement, touch and dialogue. Ideas from somatic practices, mindfulness, and Laban Movement Analysis will soften our approach and color our experience.
What happens when we consciously practice Breath, Core-Distal, Head-Tail, Upper-Lower, Body-Half, and Cross-Lateral Patterns of Total Body Connectivity? What if we make conscious the ways in which we are already practicing them?
- If we study babies’ developmental progression in the first year of life, might we remember our own? Can we become acquainted with stages we skipped or rushed through
Can movement within these fundamental patterns create support for whatever we are doing in our lives? Can that support be both literal and metaphorical?
