The curious body: from dynamic playfulness to efficiency in form
Elisabeth’s class aims at preparing an articulate, attentive and curious body to move with individual instinct through precise alignment, flow of weight, use of time and dynamic playfulness.
By introducing exploratory tasks as well as set material, the positive and energetic environment will encourage you to discover your body’s full potential through facility, strength, efficiency and a creative mind.
