Movement Basics
This basic level movement class is a great starting point for new practitioners to Movement. A blend of bodyweight strength, mobility and flow coordination work, this practice facilitates the development of somatic awareness.
These sessions are a blend of lecture, discussion, individual, introspective movement practice and partnered movement drills. Designed by SharedSpace's Movement Director, Aaron Martin, all movement workshops have a healthy blend of Strength, Mobility and Coordination work, encouraging each participant to develop a movement practice that is balancing and harmonising to one's body. These movement workshops are a taster for Movement Teacher Trainings as well as Katonah Yoga 200-hour certification accredited.
