Stalking Wild Psoas: Dance Your Psoas Home ~ A Collaboration with Laura Ward Kingston NY
May 17 @ 1:00 pm - May 19 @ 3:00 pm
Dance Your Psoas Home!
Re-wilding psoas nurtures self-efficacy. An open-ended exploration invites an opportunity to rediscover what the ancient wisdom of play has to offer us. Our curiosity burgeons as we grow confident in the language of play. Freely meandering allows an unfolding into abundant sources of unimagined exchanges. Whether exploring on our own or within a group, an act of riotous play can erupt spontaneously unstructured – with no winner or loser – deeply nourishing our confidence in simply being ourselves.
Liz Koch Stalking Wild Psoas: Embodying Your Core Intelligence
Playing with the dynamics of feeling ~ sensing, we will engage in guided and spontaneous explorations to access the kinespheric, three-dimensional gravitational support within of our personal realm of movement while discovering new territory with partners and group interactions. As we shift back and forth through freedom and form-based explorations, play and process-oriented discussion, we evoke the intelligence of our living tissue in resonance with both earth and community. A spirit of collaboration and participation is essential as we co-create a movement choir based in fluid resilience and inspiration….so to play-dance our psoas home. All levels of movement experience and ability are welcome and appropriate in this workshop. No experience is necessary.

Laura splits her time between Kingston, NY, and NYC much in the way her body shares time within classical and somatic movement forms.
