Class info
Participants are led through a series of structured exercises incorporating elements of yoga, release technique and floor work that gradually and steadily prepare them for complex patterns and challenging choreographic sequences. Particular attention is placed on the intrinsic relation between movement and breath, energy pathways, proprioception , core-strength, spinal range of motion and stamina. Expect plenty of sweating through series of organic, fluid, high paced, upside down and in-out of the floor sequences.
