In Antoinettes teaching she introduces a series of dynamic body scans, guiding the awareness of the participants using a diverse set of suggested movements. The aim of Antoinettes practice is to lead the participants towards a state of physical and mental availability and readiness.
This approach to movement is very much based on the Feldenkrais method, given that Antoinette is currently training to become a Feldenkrais practitioner. For those classes she will experiment with, and share ways of incorporating the method into her practice. The desire is to use the classes to foster playfulness, joy, imagination, curiosity, ease and freedom. Antoinette will use movement material that facilitates confusion, making mistakes, and instability – where participants can learn and discover new ways of being with their body in movement.
Given its basis in the Feldenkrais method, the class will mostly offer fixed movement material. Rather than being creative in terms of the choice of movement, Antoinette is interested in creativity in the execution of the movement, and using simple movement patterns to explore the process of making movements pleasurable, light and curious.
Short phrases will serve as reference movements, providing a common base on reflection through movement. In between the phrases Antoinette will insert a short Feldenkrais lesson. After the Feldenkrais practice, we will return to the short phrase to explore the material again, using the information gained from the practice.
