Rahel Vonmoos

Class Description | Morning class | Monday 27 November - Friday 1 December 2017

Rahel’s class draws from her personal movement research, her experience in Body-Mind Centering and Aikido. She investigates the different movement qualities of the body’s physiological systems focusing on the volume/ support of the organs and the connection of the centre to extremities and space. Rahel works with developmental patterns leading to phrases on the floor as well as standing, using a combination of set material and improvisation.
