Qualities of Touch #2 – Swimming under the skin
Revealing well-being through touch and movement
Touching someone is so simple and so incredibly complex. We are constantly negotiating a give and take, proposing actions, listening to and acting on invitations. What inspires engagement and makes me want to invest in contact and movement? How can I foster my own curiosity? We will use the Alexander Touch and the principles of the Technique as a base for our explorations around touch and movement as they offer a beautiful gateway into discovering a world that lies in between overdoing and passivity. Finding answers becomes secondary as we practice to ride arising questions!
Each session is dedicated to a specific quality of touch that we dive into and explore.
::: For whom
Anybody who would like to explore touch and small movement in an intimate setting and under qualified guidance.
Professional bodyworkers who are interested in new ideas and inspiration for their own practice.
