RELEASE: Bella Dreizler & Jenny Macke
28 Feb 2014 - 2 Mar 2014
Location: Presence Studio 1412 Cornwall Avenue
Bellingham, Washington, United States
Organizer: Jenny Macke
RELEASE, tending and transforming how you care for your precious body, your sacred transport for travel and trance in 5Rhythms. We practice for well-being---body, heart, mind, spirit—yet sometimes the physicality of dancing stresses us in harmful ways. Trouble through the hips, knees, feet, back, neck, shoulders….let’s bring skillful strategies to high risk moments. Instead of shying from the dance or pushing through despite pain, learn to tend your body as you dance to your edge. This accessible skill offers freedom for anyone who dances: grounded movement for the long-term health and wholeness of your body.
Tending your vessel now keeps the dancing path open as long as you are still breathing. RELEASE will turn the habitual into ritual, shift us from our routine dance and teach us about balls, rollers and asana to make real changes in muscle and fascia. Come dive in with awareness, adapt your dance for wholeness and seek ecstasy without harm.
“It takes discipline to be a free spirit.” Gabrielle Roth
