Power to the Pelvis!!!!!
In this 3 day workshop we will be aiming to connect to our center of gravity, center or mass, and the beautiful butterfly shaped bone/s that comprise our pelvis.
We will learn to move through and with the pelvis and get a deeper and embodied understanding of it.
Once this level is reached we will play with lifting and being lifted from the pelvis and center.
On/over/above and under yours and your partner’s pelvis and shoulders.
Connecting our center of gravity with the center of levitation (the area around the chest bone) can create a strong sensorial feeling of lightness and strength. Combining both centers with two people creates a feeling of one body.
In this 3 day workshop we will go deeply into the sensation of grounding into your bones and from there start the journey up, up, up. By the end of the workshop we will see how we will be flying on a partner in a safe way, and how to feel secure and grounded to ride this flow as one body.

Tension, Intention, Attention, Extension
Tension – How does our body move? what mechanism and physical forces drive our muscles? and how can we play with the tonus of our body? what intention do we give to our muscles and movement and how does it change it.
Intention – Our will to move, direction chosen, speed decided. Our intention is the driving force for movement manifestation in the body, yet how much of it are we aware of at any specific time and how much is “just” a reflex, or a pattern that the body has acquired over the years without giving it the proper attention.
Attention – Finding the gap between Intention to Tension, the moment where our will become physical body movement. By adding awareness to our will we can create attentive movement that is not merely a reflex to an outside signal. Our attention can go inside the body, to our partner and even far into the extended surroundings.
Extension – Spreading the limbs to the far ends of the Kinesphere, and our movement to the far end of space. Extension is one of the most used qualities in Contact Improvisation, we use it when we reach high over our partner, or when we reach down towards the ground. Despite the strong physical movement to the far edges of our body’s kinesphere, when a “full and true” extension is being made we try to stay with the minimum amount of tension in our body as possible.
Learning how to do that requires all of our attention and intention.
