BodySchool : Saving Our Necks

Last year I injured my neck badly. A herniated disk for which an operation was eventually suggested. I chose the self-healing path instead and now I’m well on the way to recovery. In this workshop I’ll share some of the Feldenkrais classes alongside some of the insights and anatomical explorations that helped me along the way.

BodySchool is a workshop series that applies somatic and postmodern dance practices to everyday life situations. The workshops move fluidly between lecture and class formats maintaining a sense of lightness, ease and good humour. There is nothing in these workshops to get right. The aim instead is to foster a physical dialogue with ourselves and the environment in which we become empowered to be our own experts.

My work is founded upon my interest to create the conditions to meet ourselves afresh with a childlike sense of wonder. I try do this through engaging playfully with our innate curiosity unhindered by expectation. This attitude, as much as the material itself, is what I offer through my work.
