Soul Motion®: Foundations
Workshop with Michael Zipkin and Camilla Steen Larsen
This five-day immersion for those just beginning their Soul Motion path as well as for seasoned movers looking to refresh; is a deep dive into the architecture and foundational elements that support the practice of Soul Motion. Emphasis is on the foundational four Soul Motion movement landscapes; dancing alone, dancing with another, dancing with everyone, dancing in the everyday with special focus on the platforms of pause presence, orbit orientation and echo inspiration.
Together we explore the key elements that make this powerful practice unique. Foundations include the movement tools, somatic languaging, and relational landscapes and platforms of Soul Motion.
Leading a vibrant and more dynamic life is learning to play with our edges and connect to the dance happening below the skin. The ability to meet everyday challenges with care and kindness are enhanced when we move with a sense of our core self.
Soul Motion is a practice where we cultivate our capacity to listen to the profound wisdom of our bodies and the quiet whisperings of soul. From this place we meet the world alive and present.
Foundations is open to everyone interested in the fundamentals of the work. It is a base requirement (pre-requisite) for the Soul Motion Teacher Training Program and is based on the lifework of Vinn Arjuna Martí.
Come as you are. No prior dance practice is required to attend, all you need is your body and you will be extra prepared.
