Friday December 7th, 10-4 (with a lunch break)
With Daniel Bear Davis and Nuria Bowart
The sub-cutaneous fascia is a continuous sheet of connective tissue directly under the skin. What about the super-cutaneous fascia? What about the Super|Cute|aneous FasciaNistas?!
In this exploratory workshop we will use interaction with various qualities and arrangements of fabric to ask how the connective networks outside of our skin change our movement choices and possibilities. Taking exploration of fascia as our starting point, we will explode open the costume box, microscope into the embryological, and expand out into the environment to query how the qualities of what surrounds us change the way we move and live in our bodies. The class will combine solo work, partner work, and group work in a playful research laboratory.
Early Bird: Before November 28th: $75
After November 28th: $90

I'm excited about the classes and collaborations I've set up while I'm in the Bay Area. I'm collaborating with some of my favorite humans while I'm there! I hope you can join us. I'm also available for one-on-one movement coaching.

In this workshop we will use the concept of “Docking Zones" to detail partnering options from beginning to advanced. The DZs are areas of the body that can be utilized to offer dynamic and versatile support in weight sharing scenarios to create a new “joint” with another body. We will use them to facilitate lifts and flight with reduced effort. How do we create a response-able system to deal with incoming force and transform it into possibility? How do we maintain integrity in the joints between humans to elongate a kinetic chain and conserve energy?
[Previous experience with the Axis Syllabus or experience with lifts is recommended for participation.]

These classes draw from the latest understandings in anatomy, biomechanics, physics, and other related disciplines to offer an integrated movement training that seeks collaboration with the structures of our body. Through specific inquiry, observation, and practice, the body is re-patterned to unleash reflexive kinetic potential while reducing the risk of injury and repetetive strain.
Classes are $10-$20 sliding scale.
