Saturday Dance Sampler
In this beginning level class, we will explore basic Nuad Boran (Thai Massage) principles as related to Contact Improvisation. Using acupressure and passive stretch, we will give and receive energetic bodywork. We will use our body weight, in relationship to gravity, to provide compression and gentle stretching while maintaining safe alignment of our bodies to support our practice. No previous bodywork experience is necessary. Thai Massage is done on a mat, fully clothed. It is often referred to as assisted yoga and the dance of metta (healing touch). It is relevant and beneficial for many dance practices as it deepens our understanding of alignment, movement and touch. Benefits of Thai Massage include increased range of motion, stress reduction, improved circulation, deep relaxation, and illness prevention.
