Embodiment Field Classes and Sessions
Ground, Play, Standing
EF Play- Somatic play enables people to source voice, movement and expression from various aspects of themselves and when playing in a group, from other players who make up the collective.
Participants access power in play by engaging dormant parts of themselves or through committing to practices in expansive embodiment. They connect with the Muse and move between social and inner sourcing. Participants are guided to source by thinking relationally and by cultivating an expressive vessel for the Muse to work through.
Private group sessions can help groups develop solidarity through creative collaboration and open new lines of communication. (Zoom sessions available)
Depending on the individual, one-to-one sessions can assist one to move through self-consciousness and explore embodied expression in a private context or to fully play as a multifaceted adult.(Zoom sessions available)
EF Ground classes offer a place, time and tools for nurturing fluidity, initiating brilliant coordination and cultivating ease, pleasure and deep resting states through guided practice.
On the floor or a mat, we cultivate coordination by following the body’s natural flows and directing focus to specific systems. Rewilding and “undoing”across systems frees energy and engages powerful movement. Using the hands to invite coherent rapport between body and field, fortifies new alignments.
Unlike exercises on the floor, in a very cool way we’re conscious of the ground as our collaborator for honing the tactile sense and ultimately calming the nervous system.
In practice, we work through contact with the ground and touching into dynamics between body systems and the field. Touch in conjunction with movement increases oxytocin and serotonin levels in the brain that affect our sense of well being. In addition, certain kinds of impact into the floor through movement can benefit fascial networks, the organs and energy flow.
We teach relational coordination, so the body can re-organize to find harmony again. Embodiment becomes a ritual of connecting with Source (inspiration) through these processes. Usually, this practice enhances one’s ability to sense subtle energy, an aspect of aesthetic embodiment and embodying love.
Dancers may find this practice aids in great articulation of movement across systems and feel energized and ready to take it into dance practice
Tuning into to the breath, sensing the field around us and moving based on sensation and coordination leads us into a pleasurable practice. By staying connected to what’s enjoyed, strengthening and stretching become benefits of the embodiment practice.
Sourcing and receiving from the field supplies the bodymind with energy (chi), increases levity and boosts the immune system. The practice changes brain waves and brain chemistry and balances our connection with home on earth and elsewhere.
