Conscious Body System Theory And Practice Intensive
When: 06th & 07th January 2018 from 2pm to 6pm
WHAT IS IT?
The "Conscious Body system” teaches movers how to build up strength rather than saving it, and how to use that strength in a safe and healthy way. It is a system which guides movers to be precise and work consciously with their bodies and unique structures.
During the classes, we train the body to magnify basic skills of moving to and from the floor, until we are comfortable with fast weight transitions. This is done through pulling and pushing movements on the floor, in safe and the personal speeds. Thinking through movement is an important tool for comprehending the muscular activations in the body. The idea is to create an environment where it is possible to go as fast as possible, or as slow as needed.The Conscious Body System is structured in 2 parts: improvisation system and movement workout combination.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The class begins with hands-on work in pairs to facilitate the awakening of the muscles and skin while gently heating the body´s joints. Working with repeating patterns which integrate strength, flexibility and functional movement, it is possible to activate neuromuscular memory to support safe habits and to awaken natural body consciousness. After approximately 15 minutes of reciprocal awakening massage, we begin phrases in groups such as contact exercises where everybody works individually and concentrates on themselves and their own body but at the same time connects and interacts with others. This compels people to be aware and present at the motion’s effect of their bodies rather than the repetition of a singular body shape.
The majority of the class consists of repeating small phrases crossing the space, giving the participants a chance to repeat the material several times. Through repetition, they gain a deeper understanding of both their bodies and the work.
The class is given by Chaim Gebber & Roberta Pupotto
