APRIL Focus ~ Awareness of Elbow

Awareness of Elbow


Sensing Precision

Tuesday, April 8 am Studio 3, $8 MAC Club
followed by 9 am NIA Class

Through the month of April 
at the MAC Club and Anita's Classes 
we will focus on the elbow joint!

Throughout April we're exploring the elbow joint,
a shallow hinge joint formed by your upper arm bone;
the humerous and your two forearm bones;
the ulna and radius.

Surprise yourSELF by mastering the technique of using the elbow to initiate hand and arm moves, 
such as executing martial art blocks, hand strikes, punches, and elbow strikes. 
Be able to deliver the movement with greater precision, control, power, and grace. 
And here is the surprise: the wear and tear sensed in the shoulders and back may magically disappeared, 
all because theThe Body’s Way becomes present — respecting the intelligent function of your body.

Awareness of Upper Arm Bone ~ Sensing Direction ~ March Focus

Awareness of Upper Arm Bone
 

Sensing Direction

A healthy upper arm bone is sensed as hanging,
free to swing, turn, swivel and fluidly rotate in many directions
while smoothly moving through space at various speeds. 

In the Month of March,
we will learn what it means to
sense relaxed holding,
to sense core support from underneath,to sense expression of power and grace,
ALL through dynamic ease.

MAC workshop 
Tuesday, March 4th, 8 am Studio 3, $8
followed by 9 am NIA Class 
(see MAC for full schedule of NIA and Floor Play classes)
