Relax to Erupt technique
RelaxtoErupt is a full bodied physically demanding practise which focuses on moving between 0% to 100% of energy. Relaxation in the movement is as vital as the explosive moments. We will train in floor work and standing phrases with the emphasis on finding opposition in the body and releasing tension in the hips, chest and head. This practise by Lewis Cooke has spread across London, Dundee and Athens. The class is continually evolving as Lewis is hungry and curious to develop his understanding of the body whilst shifting through various spaces trying to find unlimited possibilities in movement.
