50hrs Intensive Training Course
This course will enhance your current practice by developing your ‘movement/mindbody intelligence’, this is which in fact will help you to ‘learn how to learn’ and aquire skills quicker by increasing body awareness.
You will gain both fluidity and grace in movement. It will give you the confidence to move freely with ease and to incorporate ‘movement rituals’ protocols into your current practice.
This course is the result of Baris’ extensive experience in teaching coupled with his embodiment, deep self practice, research and study.
Baris currently lectures on Movement at the University of East London: Urban Dance Practice BA(hons) diploma which has been running for 5 years.
What is Movement Rituals?
Movement Rituals is a comprehensive mixed movement pedagogy to help people adopt a daily movement practice.
It can hugely aid and supplement any practice or be used as a stand alone training system.
Practitioners are challenged both physically and mentally which encourages self discipline and self enquiry. Movement games and puzzles encourage interaction, body dialogue and co-oporation which improve practitioners proprioception, body awareness and co-ordination. This reawakening of the 6th sense or ‘kinaesthesia’ develops the growth of the practitioners ’movement intelligence’ which ultimately makes the practitioner into a more practical, functional, competent and confident mover, quicker to adapt to different circumstances (like picking up different sequencing/practicing in small spaces) and learn more complicated skills (such as- arm balances, handstands, inversions).
These sessions are a great way to learn/fine tune core bodyweight skills (press ups •sit ups•planks•handstands•bridges•) In detail and/or for those that need to boost motivation, improve their life style or simply just to keep fit, lean and healthy. Strong but flexible just like bambu!
