Outline of a sample workshop:
Deconstructing conformed approaches to things and each other, a performance workshop experience.
A participatory performance workshop which begins with a standing meditation, followed by movement exercises influenced by Anna Halprin, Butoh and Eastern Philosophies. The exercises bring awareness and connection to the body, enabling presence in the mind in correlation with he body. The participants will then explore different ways of moving, shaping their bodies to the objects presented, and to each other. Non-verbal movement will be explored allowing for new connections between bodies and space to manifest.
The piece thinks about how, we as bodies, shape each other, and how the things and objects that surround us define and inform gesture and movement. Conformed quotidian movement will be deconstructed through conscious somatic play and exploration of body in relation to objects and other bodies. The workshop explores the body in a sculptural, somatic and psychological manner, beginning with the body as medium, as art. It looks to consider how the spaces we situate ourselves in and the people who surround us shape our beings and inform the way we bend, move and think and looks to present a poetic display of co-existence, relation and interaction.
Conecting to the creative process through the mind and body
A workshop that focuses on how a mind body connection can enable flow and an embrace of the creative process to manifest. The workshop begins with a standing meditation that moves into moving meditation, exploring the anatomy of the body through movement and weight placement. From this state of being within the mind and body, art will be created. The art made in this workshop is not specific to one meidum, but may consist of painting, performance, film, drawing, writing, photography etc. and in its essence, focuses on enabling a fluid, uninhibiting connection to creativity to be explored and found within.
Yoga and Pilates
I also teach a class that fuses yoga and pilates together. The class centers on connecting to the core.

Sessions that utilize sound and vocal guidance to inform the mind into flow and a space of de-attachment.
