A weekly practice to train the body and mind as a pathway into creativity and performance. With each class we start with the idea that it’s not the “what,” it’s the “how.” We will start with a simple warm-up in which we play with gravity and build resilience, and then students will explore a question that lead into somatic explorations, visualizations, scoring and improvisations. Each session includes the option to perform and to witness the daily score. We will also take time when possible to end each session with an expressive drawing.

Jennifer Gwirtz is passionate about somatic practice. She has been teaching for fifteen years and has studied yoga, clown, Pilates, many types of dance, and GYROKINESIS®. She has been a certified Pilates instructor since 2003 and a certified GYROKINESIS® instructor since 2015. She is currently developing her own (as yet unnamed) form of exploratory movement practice rooted in curiosity, imagination, sensation, precision and presence.
