Law of Proximity with MACHiNENOiSY’s Delia Brett and Daelik

Thursday, August 11 (10:30am – 12:00pm)

Dovercourt House, 2nd Floor
805 Dovercourt Road, Toronto

We will begin the class by arriving in the space physically, emotionally and mentally. Through a series of relatively still/slow exercises designed to let go of high-tone muscularity and encourage the release of the joints and connective tissues, we will build a connection with our body on a deeper level.  Alone, in pairs and collectively we will explore gravity and the inner energy that comes from our center and moves through our whole body right to the periphery. An emphasis will be placed on how to move with an active/relaxed body.  We will explore varying qualities of touch and pressure and some partnered gentle touch or bodywork that prepares the student to have a dialogue of listening and responding through touch.  All of this will prepare the participant to be ready for being in the present moment and moving from the senses.

Open to all levels
