Authentic Movement Practice with Tahni Holt + Hannah Krafcik

NOTE: No classes in August

Authentic Movement is a simple form of self-directed movement. It is usually done with eyes closed and attention directed inward, in the presence of at least one witness. Movers explore spontaneous gestures, movements, and stillness, following inner impulses in the present moment. The witness watches and tracks inner responses to the mover with the intention of not judging, but focusing on self-awareness.

Authentic Movement cultivates a contemplative frame of mind, clarity of perception, and movement that is personally enhancing. The particular relationship between mover and witness, in moving and being seen by another, creates a powerful framework within which this work takes place.

Workshop w/Tahni Holt Sensation/Disorientation

Workshop w/Tahni Holt Sensation/Disorientation

The wild body, the sensitive body, the sensuous body, the breathing body, the listening body, the reptilian body, the body intimate. The body that extends beyond the membrane of skin, the body with energetic presence.

In this workshop we practice being together (not in consensus) in tenderness.

We use sensations and disorientation to challenge our behavioral norms. We are highly sensitized to how we move, how we see, how we feel. This workshop proposes to disorient our specific strategies of knowing to allow for the unknown, the mystery and magic to guide us to wherever we show up.

Through rigorous physical expressions, somatic practices, readings, sensorial exercises including extensive touch, we awaken our potential body. The shape shifting body tethered to possibilities.
