Practicing Connections in Movement: An Introduction to Klein Technique™ with Alice Heyward

This event has passed Get Tickets

Event description

Join dancer Alice Heyward for an introductory workshop on Klein Technique™, a process-oriented practice of immense value to people of all proficiency levels, dancers, and non-dancers alike. It aims to teach movement from the individual perspective of internal knowing and understanding. 

To improve movement and reduce and heal injuries, Klein Technique™ focuses on moving from our deepest structural and energetic tissue, the bone, and the connections at the level of the bones. We will work on the muscles of deep postural support: the psoas, the hamstrings, the pelvic floor muscles, and the external rotators. With a body-felt understanding of how these muscles bring the bones into alignment and to a place of connectedness, this technique leads to true power and efficiency of movement. 

Please come dressed in comfortable, loose clothing. You are welcome to bring your own yoga mat or something similar.
