Class Description | Morning Class, 01 - 05 February 2021 | AUDIO RECORDINGS
How can we embrace our habitual tendencies to move in certain ways, whilst at the same time investigate some new possibilities, not only in our movement but how we think, act and feel. The Feldenkrais Method® of Somatic Education offers us a great opportunity to dive into this world of learning and experience ourselves with some new insight. These classes will address the relationships between your hands, arms and upper back through a soft pliable chest, though as always your whole self will be included. Each session will begin with a Feldenkrais® Awareness Through Movement lesson which encourages slowing down and listening to the small detail. Structured improvisations then allow this learning to feed into your dancing and the ability to sense yourself on the 'inside' whilst being fully present in space.
Caroline Scott is based in Mytholmroyd, near Hebden Bridge in Yorkshire where she currently runs her online Feldenkrais practice. She has worked with dance & movement in many contexts since finishing her dance training at Laban over 30 years ago. Improvisation both in performance and teaching has been a continuous thread informed by working with Steve Paxton, Julyen Hamilton, Gill Clarke, Lucia Walker, Eva Karczag, The Monday Group, Gaby Agis & Virginia Farman. In Scott Clark’s dance classes Caroline began a lifelong exploration of the Feldenkrais Method® of Somatic Education which led to her completing the Amsterdam International Feldenkrais Training (AIFT) in 2002. Since then she has worked, in groups and individually, with dancers, adults with MS, women living with cancer, children with neurological challenges, and more broadly anyone who is looking for a simpler, easier way of being.
