    Class Description:



    A blending of studies that aim to reprogram physical patterning while questioning movement lineage. A space to explore, play, and discuss:

    • Sensory deprivation vs. amplification, disarming the ego, and trust.

    • Games focused on deconstruction as a vehicle for building.

    • Exercises geared towards reimagining and sharpening tools.

    Curated by Roya Carreras.
