Class Description: Sarah invites you to come to class with the trust and confidence that your body has all that it needs and with the ability to use the space and time in class truly for your own research. Within the collective of the room, we will together expand the resources of our bodies even further using guided improvisations, imagery, and utilizing specific ideas about anatomical and kinesiological function. Sarah’s influences come from numerous somatic modalities including Body Mind Centering, Feldenkrais Method, Alexander Technique, and Steve Paxton’s Material for the Spine.
