Movement in Relaxation - Taichi
Relaxation in Action
This work is a body experience, based on energetic concepts of movement. The work comes from my long experience in dance and Taichi which brought me to combine both in my body work.
The work goes through different phases.
We begin by listening to the absence of movement and the silence of the body, perceiving involuntary movement through the practice of relaxation as an activity, in search of a natural energetic rebalancing of the body and investigating in useful relaxation during stillness.
Then we go on to move in a relaxed state, with a minimum of necessary effort and keep energetic balance in motion.?? The practice is focused on different elementary energetic-formal paths of the movement flow and their intrinsic organic rhythm (both individual and collective), to expand the perception of movement as a continuous transformation between activity and inactiveness, tension and looseness, full and empty, in a natural relation with breathing.
