Class Description | Morning class | 17 - 21 September 2018



Skinner Releasing Technique (SRT) uses image-guided floor work and hands-on tactile participants to facilitate a deeper kinaesthetic experience of movement. Spontaneous movement evoked by imagery enables the participant to explore technical principles such as multi directional alignment, suppleness, suspension, economy and autonomy.
