There are no straight lines in the human body: curves, dips and asymmetries are the lay of the land. Let’s develop a better feel for these irregular shapes and allow them to permeate our movement choices, reactions, and habits. Let’s move with arcs and obliques, instead of lines and abrupt stops.
In this introductory Axis Syllabus class, we will play with some basic anatomical concepts, we will roll and walk, and slide and spiral, and hopefully find something new to be curious about.
