Week 3, 1.8.–5.8.2011
Release Technique- Enjoying the Laws of Motion
Enjoy the intensity of movement
The class is based on the main premises of Release Technique.
The terms verticality and gravity are introduced from the very beginning of the warm up to develop the relationship of the mover with the floor and gain awareness of total alignment.
The focus is on the head-neck connection as initiation for any action. The importance of using the real weight of the extremities, pelvis and thorax will be explored. Self perception of movement is the main goal in changing previous physical habits, in order to use new perimeters that will help us renounce extra muscular force.
We will delve into active integration of mind and body and the investigation of your own thought process to open new ways of communication with other bodies in space.
This class is an approach to the body as an open system, a physical machine that endures the laws of motion. The three golden laws of Inertia, Reciprocal actions and Impulses are there to help us dance and enjoy the intensity of our movements.
