4 Mondays, November 30 – December 21, 10-11:30AM Pacific Time
The winter solstice marks a transition between seasons, inviting us to turn inward and make space to regenerate and renew, lighting something within us. In this end-of-the-year movement workshop, we’ll tune in to our somatic bodies and slow down. We’ll notice places where we can let go, fold and unfold, and enjoy our embodied aliveness.
Participants will explore structured movements devised by Anna Halprin that help relax the mind, expand range of movement, and spark creative expression. Drawing and writing enrich the movement experience. Open to all. No dance or art experience needed.
To get the most out of this online series, please prepare a comfortable space to move in with access to your online device. Also, have art supplies ready at hand for drawing activities, and paper and pen for journaling and creative writing exercises.
