Monthly Class/ Jam with Jackie Adkins: Feldenkrais ‘Awareness Through Movement”
In this session we will begin with a Feldenkrais Method lesson in Awareness Through Movement, in which we will refine our awareness by paying moment by moment attention in a specific sequence of movements to encourage more efficient action throughout our whole self. From this attuned state we will explore solo moving, establishing our sense of self, through grounded fluidity, developing into encountering others in touch duets. We will play with entering and leaving duets – aiming to make seamless transitions between soloing and dueting, maintaining a state of readiness to make unexpected choices at any moment, in terms of weight, spatial intent, speed and flow.
Please bring a mat or blanket to lie on.
