About the class

I call my classes Earthflow, as my intention in my physical practice is to feel connected to the ground and seek to find flow and expansion in my movement. Expect some set material and some improvisation stimuli to keep us on our toes and curiously examining our physiology. This is an approach inspired by Contemporary and Caribbean Dance Elements, Release Technique, Animal Flow, Yoga and Capoeira. Together we will seek liberation and flow, strengthening our connection to the earth both physically and energetically, seeking to find elasticity in our movement.

We’ll creatively explore cyclical movement patterns and rhythms, travelling through space, inviting curiosity, accuracy, breath and clarity. In an energetic and playful environment, we’ll revitalise our senses, build strength, and stamina and open our awareness as we move together as a community. The class will be accompanied by live music (beatbox, vocal improv loop station).
