Streams of Momentum
As we move in contact with the earth, we create waves and small rivers of momentum. We push, surrender, let flow, and redirect impulses. This also happens as we meet another body– we create shared momentum. In this class we will practice tracking, allowing, creating, and steering momentum in our solo bodies and with a partner. We will wake up our fluid bodies and allow the movement created by our meeting the floor to travel through us. From there we will play with joining, guiding, and amplifying the inner and outer momentums already happening. As we find clarity in our shared cycling of weight, speed, and direction, we can fall, flow, and fly in and out of contact with playful ease.
