In the beginning of the class we will do exercises to wake up awareness, sensitivity and adaptivity. The inspiration for movement work comes from released based techniques, floor work, and different styles of martial arts (Muay Chaiya, Kung Fu, Tai Chi). We improvise and work in pairs to explore integrated and free movement. The class will be finished with a set movement material playing with gravity, balance and different qualities of movement.
