The Art of Counterbalances 

Counterbalances 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.  Explore the wonders of human counterbalances, delve into your creative potential. 

A regular body awareness practice would be a good advantage.  Come or your own or as a pair; we will get to mix and match with everyone in the room.

If you want to go fast, go alone.  If you want to go far go together (African Proverb).
