Move With The Seasons natural movement and play workshop highlights part 1.
Everything has a season. Our bodies, our relationships with people and our habitat, our challenges and phases in life. Life isn't static it contains patterns, cycles and rhythm and with it opportunity for awareness, adaption and harmony.
Move with Seasons is an event to rediscover playful and natural movement in the context of nature and the season with a supportive group. It is my invitation to start a journey. Along the way we explore the relationship, connection and interactions between body, tribe and habitat - your self, group and locomotive practice - and how they sculpt one another. Does what we practice explore qualities and relationships we can carry over into life? How do we adapt to change if we don't expose ourself to variety, adversity? Is it useful to recognise parallels between your life and the changing seasons?
Come join us on 28th October for Move With The Seasons - Autumn.

What happens at a workshop?
We explore many questions but do not care too much about the answers:-
►How can the cultivation of a self practice, a partner/group practice, and a locomotive/environmental practice (moving through the environment) provide an opportunity to explore qualities and relationships we can carry over into life?
►How does body, habitat and tribe all sculpt one another?
What we put into the containers of self, group and environmental practice, for me is not as important as the potential for discovery through embodiment, discovery of traits and qualities we have and/or wish to keep hold or let go of, that each of the containers provide a platform for. I’m looking forward to sharing ideas for a self practice focussed on allowing and not being afraid to take your time to nurture yourself, dancing to listen to yourself, your emotions, your imagination. Group and partner games and interactions that extend the communication started with self to others and for that to be a 2-way Street. Dancing in the trees, dancing with others in the trees and exploring the relationships between expression and artistic movement in nature with natural movement and parkour more geared towards utility and effectiveness and what they both share through the lens of creativity.
Come join us for natural movement training in London. #movewiththeseasons
You will experience:
• Tree Dancing to TreeRunning - learn how to flow in trees via the lenses of different forms of arboreal locomotion, tree climbing and dance. Play on the continuum of Treerunning and Treedancing. What techniques in Parkour work well in trees. How can we take ideas from our solo and group dance and movement situation practice and apply them to dancing with the trees
• Flow - learn to flow in context on the ground and over various obstacles, whether grass, bark or leafy terrain,
• Ground interaction - ground flow and break falling, rebuild your relationship, confidence and vocabulary moving on and getting to and from the ground.
• Partner/group interaction - rapport/connection building games, with roughhousing / rough and tumble play and contact improvisation
• Manipulative skills / cooperative building - Unique building and crafting tasks putting lifting carrying and tool use into context and exploring creative expression in finding harmony in adding to one's environment with the "sculpting of space"
• Mobility development tools - joint health and longevity, building flexibility with strength and control, resilience and the sensitivity to react to the unknown.
• An introduction to strength training with practical application to natural movement and dealing with chaotic situations in mind.
