TEACHERS / MASTER-CLASSES DESCRIPTION
In the Eye of the Hurricane, Martin Keogh
|About masterclass: ||Amidst the velocity and whirling of a hurricane rests an area that is silent and still, known as the “eye.” Cultivating this quiet core at the center of activity is the theme of this workshop.
We will settle into a base camp of mindfulness, and then set out to investigate the wilderness of disorientation. We will enter the forest where there's no trail, jump into the dark, swim into what might be a cave, and build a tolerance for waiting in the unknown. Special emphasis on releasing the neck and pelvis, and surprising ourselves in flight and extended follow-through.
This workshop is for all levels but no bare beginners.
