This workshop focuses on awakening the bodily imagination and producing experiences of enjoyment and flow through motion. Course curriculum includes exercises based on tai chi that awaken the flow of energy in the body, activities that strengthen the core and the rear sections of the body, and improvisation tasks that support bodily articulation and help the participants establish a connection to motion that is both present and pleasurable and opens the bodily imagination. The course is open to all experience levels.
