Sung Im Her

Class Description | Morning Class | 16-20 March 2020

“Moving cloud” class draws from my personal movement research of shadow yoga, release technique and somatic practice. The class will consist of open explorations often using improvisation as well as set material. Improvisation guide into various moves which aim to give awareness of body in space and space in our body. This class is a journey to find unconscious ways of moving and discovering different places in our body, give a chance for the rest of body to observe unexpected, unconscious move. The classes also involve working in pairs. Set material works with abandoned and regained energy to create certain dynamic and momentum.
