This movement practice draws inspiration from Qigong, floor work with other somatic that support our sense of weight in motion. Trying to discover and develop a personal way of moving, I encourage personal expression and personal differences to exist, by using Forsythe improvisation methods and emphasizing to focus on the proper use of our breathing.
