Morning class | 28 September - 2 October 2020 | Outdoors*Taking place outdoors, Rahel Vonmoos' class draws from her personal movement research and 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 ground as well as standing, using a combination of set material and improvisation.
Meeting point: Siobhan Davies Studios courtyard, where a member of ID's team will meet you. The class will take place in a nearby outdoor space. We will work in all (well most!) weathers and may work close to the ground. Please come with warm clothing, outdoor shoes and waterproofs if possible.
*Please note: Class on Friday 2 October will be led by Henrietta Hale
