This workshop explores various ways of preparing the body for movement. Improving proprioceptive abilities will be covered to improve stability and balance. Special attention will also be given to neuromuscular signals to promote better movement patterns. In addition, sensory awareness will be developed by training the body as a whole, rather than targeting individual parts.
By the end of this workshop, artists will have a better understanding of how to prepare their bodies for movement. Developing body awareness will also help them prevent injury and improve their postural stability, strength and flexibility.
This workshop is intended for circus artists.

She also teaches therapeutic movement for young actors at the National Theatre School.

Presentation of the course, introduction. General focus - whole body. Each course will build on the previous one.
Focus on the scapular and shoulder muscles but still with a global approach to see how the fascia and muscles work together.
Focus on the pelvis and hips but with a global approach without losing the connection of the body
Focus on the feet, connections with the rest of the body
Review of everything. We will review how the body works together, if we are working on the arms the whole body must be involved.
