Join Molly W. Schenck for a 3-hour workshop exploring mindful movement and connecting with your body at "Somatic Movement Flows"
About this Event

This two-hour educational workshop on somatic movement where participants can experience floor based somatic flows, balance focused movement phrases, and somatic inquiry through improvisation. Participants can expect a supportive learning envirnoment, a compassionate space for exploring new movement, and sequences that meet movers where they are at in their journey.

This workshop is created and led by Molly W. Schenck, a Registered Somatic Movement Educator/Therapist and former dance professor. Her dynamic teaching style meets people where they are at and welcomes participants of all abilities, skills, and knowledge. She artfully blends her knowledge of human movement, dance, yoga and somatic practices into a beautifully balanced class.

This workshop is broken into three portions: floor based sequences, balance focused phrases, and somatic inquiry through improvisation. More details on each of these below:

Floor based sequences: are the foundation of Molly's somatic work and will leave your bodymind feeling centered and grounded. Participants can expect to learn floor-based movement phrases rooted in developmental movement patterns and inspired by postmodern contemporary dance. In many ways, this will feel like an all-levels yoga class that has spilled off the mat and across the floor!

Balance focused phrases: is a movement practice guided by somatic principles to leave your bodymind feeling balanced and aligned. These phrases are designed to support better balance with emphasis on the details such as head positioning, grounding through to the earth, and understanding eye movement.

Somatic inquiry through improvisation: Somatic Improvisation is an open format dance class that centers the soma (i.e. the living body). Somatic inquiry - finding awareness of self through investigating your body and movement - is the guiding light for these classes. These movement explorations are informed by Molly’s studies with Dr. Martha Eddy and rooted in Dr. Eddy’s methods titled BodyMind Dancing™ and Dynamic Embodiment®.

Molly believes in participant driven workshops and will engage in regular dialogue with the group. The workshop will start with a verbal check-in that will help Molly guide the movement offered to the class. Then Molly will offer structured movement phrases, guide participants through movement exploration and mini-phrases to offer support based on conversation. The workshops will concludes with discussion and a verbal check-out to wrap-up the workshop.
