This workshop will be a deep-dive into task-based movement training. Primarily inspired by the Fighting Monkey Practice, we will explore task-based movement and how its application in personal practice and in teaching is vital for longevity.
Solo and partnered task-based movement situations will be investigated using the Fighting Monkey tools, floorwork/low-flying locomotion and directed improvisation. The physical work will be supported by discussion of the Fighting Monkey approach and how to integrate this work into an existing personal or teaching practice.
Movement Quotient adheres to yogic precepts; is a great complement to a traditional yoga practice and to any physical discipline. All dedicated practitioners and movement instructors, (including but not limited to dancers, athletes, physical performers, yogis and martial artists), are welcome.
Pants that cover the knees and shirts that cover the shoulders are recommended.
Date: Sunday, May 6th
