Relax, Move, Connect - 6-part series
Ecumenical Ministries, KU Campus 1204 Oread
Thursdays, October 11 - November 15, 2018
Whether it’s a thousand clicks each day of the mouse, or the forward and back motion of an elliptical machine, our movements - even those that we find enjoyable or useful - can also become quite predictable.
Moving in the same way over and over again is a bit like driving the wheels of a car in a rut. Like the car, our bodies get stuck and run out of options when we do the same things over and over again. The fact is that our bodies - and our brains - actually thrive when we introduce new ways of moving into our usual patterns!
Relax, Move, Connect is a 6 week series that will help you break out of these old patterns to try something new - think of it as a whole body movement refresher! What can you expect from this series?
Simple and engaging movement exercises which relax and connect the whole body
Active breath practice for stress reduction and deep muscle engagement
Imaginative and fun new ways to move to get you out of the same old patterns
How movement and the mind connect - based on the Bartenieff Fundamentals
No experience necessary!
This program is free to KU students, and $10 a session for the community ($50 for the total if you wish to commit to all six sessions). I encourage folks to commit to the full six, because the learning really is enhanced with each session. Plus, it’s more fun with a cohesive group! Drop-in attendance is also welcome.
Students-Free, Community-$10 (Attend all 6 sessions for $50!)
