What does it mean to be self aware? Since ancient times, traditions all over the world have acknowledged that to know ourselves can be a complicated endeavor – one that involves developing a functional perspective on the ways our bodies and minds (together, our "gross" body) access, move, and are affected by energy (in and through a more "subtle" body). Many conceptual frameworks – chakras, nadis, qi meridians, and psychosomatic understandings of the importance of the spine and the nervous system – have each been developed to help shed light on this endeavor. Our presenters will paint a picture of this vast conceptual landscape in order to contextualize eastern and western theory in a practical way, so that we may gently develop a more personal, and powerful, relationship with self awareness. During the course of our time together, we will discuss and explore these systems with the intention of then utilizing the frameworks we discover to explore the physical, energetic, and psycho-emotional bodies in movement practice.

Please wear comfortable clothing that permits free range of motion.

This program is being offered IN-PERSON only. Participants are encouraged to wear a mask at all times, if possible, and to practice social distancing. Students are required to complete and sign a liability waiver form in order to participate, which will be distributed via email prior to the program, and available in paper upon arrival at the center.

This class will not be recorded.
