Two’s Company: the art of counter-balances
Counter-balances are when weight is used as a lever to reduce the effort of lifting loads, thereby enabling the balance of another weight. We will look at how this can be applied to individuals working together as a pair and what potential balances can be created. We will up look into the push-pull nuances of balance; the engagement and release that allows stability in both symmetrical and asymmetric structures and how to safely build interesting shapes and poses.
We will work progressively beginning with an asana practice for individual body awareness; thereafter, explore the sensitivity required in working as a pair. No partner necessary, we will get to mix and match with everyone in the room. Explore the wonders of human counter-balances, delve into your creative potential. If you want to go fast, go alone.
