DYNAMIC ANATOMY: Fascial Flow / Arms as Roots – an Axis Syllabus based Dynamic Anatomy workshop with Zoë Solomons.
Our hands and arms have unique expressivity and tactile intelligence. The evolution and experience of which lives in their fascial connective tissue.
In this workshop we will observe the fascial anatomy of the arms; the layers of connective tissue that wrap, support and connect our upper limbs to our trunk and legs.
This anatomical enquiry will be a starting point for movement exploration, tuning us into sensory specificity, support and connection to reach, spiral and take weight through the arms.
We may do short movement motifs as well as free movement as we practice together. All aspects are opt-in and are adaptable for movers of all levels of experience. The emphasis of these sessions is to develop our own movement research/exploration. Honouring our individual and collective body intelligence.
Previous workshop participants report that the experience was supportive for varied practices of rowing, gardening, running, yoga, parenting, as well as dancing.
Expect embodied learning and functional movement that can open up the natural joy & sensuality of having a human body!
