Explore your skeletons natural and efficient movement patterns and connections through a Feldenkrais lesson. Sensation & movement + mindfulness allow you to “see” your own skeleton in motion.
Examine a life size plastic skeletons, including one which is in pieces so you can turn each bone over in your hands and examine it from every angle. Sketching and drawing the structures we are focusing on leads to understanding your underlying physical structure in a new light.
Bring your new awareness of the skeleton back into movement. Guided movement will blossom into an opportunity to freely improvise and move or to return to your sketchbook and explore how feeling and understanding your body has shifted your drawing of the human form.
