An embodied investigation of the processes of kinesthetic learning, with an interest in improving one’s awareness, self-use, and potency. This course asks: What role(s) do movement and environment play in how we think, learn, and co-exist? How might we consider our own (or another’s) bodily organization as expressing a self-in-process? Our restorative weekly movement practice and discussion will explore themes such as dynamic instability, mobilization from supporting surfaces, proportional movement/effort distribution, and reversibility. The social aspects of these physical themes will be engaged through partner and group exercises, and occasionally in writing. Movement lessons prioritize quality over quantity, and are modifiable to any level of ability and experience.
