Y’all know I love a good collage, and this class is no exception. Movement Matcha combines the movement-based techniques I think make a workday (especially a desk-bound, quarantined workday) a little brighter.
About half of class will be standing Fletcher Pilates work using a towel stretched between the hands as feedback for shoulder and spine awareness.
The other other half is reserved for somatic exploration and play, using theater and dance improv games. We’ll spend at least part of the time doing solo work away from the screen in an effort to rest our Zoom-by eyes and move through space as 3-D creatures!
- Using standing Pilates with a towel as a prop, you’ll open your chest and hips, release your shoulders, and mobilize your spine.
- Gentle somatic techniques — including breathwork — will help you feel centered and energized.
- We’ll play some movement-based games—both solo and as a group—to focus your attention and spark your creativity.
Props needed: A towel long enough to stretch between your hands. A normal bath towel works, as long as it is not too fluffy and luxurious to wrap your hands around! A rolled up T-shirt can work well, too. You’ll also need a clear space to move in, the Zoom app, and a stable Internet connection.
Prerequisites: No experience needed — in fact the less you think you know about movement games, the more fun it will be!
However, for your safety, instructor permission is required to join. If we haven’t worked together before, I may need you to do a 30-minute Online Intro to Pilates Consultation with me before your first class. You’ll learn Pilates fundamentals that will help you get more out of class.
