About the class: 
In this class we will work on developing sensitivity to the energies moving through and around us, using the wealth of information pulsing through the collective field to inspire and facilitate movement exploration.  We warm up with breathwork and simple targeted movements designed to activate the energetic centers of the body followed by a guided improvisation, connecting to the structure and power of our bodies by playing with the potentials of the space we inhabit.
