Every day millions of people suffer from pain in their spine, pelvis and and muscles of the lower back.   Wear comfortable clothes to explore soothing re-alignment movements to ease tension and lessen compressional forces in the body.  The main influence will be from the life work of the brilliant physio-therapist Irmgard Bartenieff  who created Fundamentals of Movement. This class uses Bartenieff’s principles of breath, core and pelvic floor support, along with an understanding of how spatial awareness supports movement.  With lightness and free flow as an antidote to high-intensity bound movement pain may just melt away.
