NEXT EVENT

MOVING WITH CARE

To successfully ‘take care’ there must exist a balance between two forces - on one hand, rigour and discipline, on the other hand, softness and receptivity. The proposal of this workshop is that the conscious practice of movement offers a lens into our individual habits in this respect - and an opportunity to observe and alter them.

Let us consider a thought experiment to illustrate the theme. Consider two fictional people:

Our first person is a manager in a demanding 9-5 job.
His demeanour speaks of stern-ness and control, he seeks to control outcomes as much as possible, is notably uncomfortable with changes to plans. Those around him describe him as ‘uptight’, ‘tense’, or ‘ruling with an iron fist’. There is excessive discipline here, and almost certainly his body reflects this. When you imagine this person, how does he look? How does this person hold themselves?

Our second person is a part-time worker.
He is known affectionately by his friends as someone always on the lookout for a party. He often oscillates between high excitement and low energy. He rarely makes regular commitments, preferring to see what happens. He is understood by his friends to be unpunctual at best, and those around him might describe him as ‘carefree’, ‘relaxed’ or  ‘spontaneous’. Here an emphasis on softness has perhaps drifted into unreliability. Again, how does the demeanour of this body appear in your mind?

Even with these overly simple caricatures -  most of us have met human examples which sit somewhere close by on the spectrum. If indeed we don’t relate to either character directly ourselves.

I would suggest that the natural intuition is that neither person here provides an ideal example of ‘self care’. And yet, the approach that many of us take toward our body, our wellbeing, or our physical training or posture is perhaps not a million miles away from one of these styles.

In this workshop we use a simple vocabulary of movement to consider what ‘moving with care’ could mean, for each of us. Providing simple tools to help you find and walk the line between discipline and comfort, and achieve a healthy balance of the two. This workshop will be especially valuable to anyone that has found themselves experiencing questions around self-cafe, anxiety, overwhelm, or burnout during the pandemic.
