get inside!

Feel like you could benefit from connecting with and moving your body, but are reluctant to start? Looking for ways to reduce stress and feel more at ease? Thought about joining a dance, movement, yoga, or meditation class before and keep avoiding it for one reason or another? Have a hunch there's a connection between your body and your thoughts and are curious about explore that connection? Then this workshop is for you! 

Join Hana van der Kolk for a 3-hour workshop that will draw from yoga, dance, meditation, community-building exercises, and the Internal Family Systems, and offer participants a tool box of simple practices you can do on your own at home to reduce stress and become more intimate with yourself and connected in the world. 

Sliding scale $10-35

to Aug 3

State/s, Body, Treasure 2

In this 6-week class series we’ll explore a number of practices for accessing and playing in/with the intelligence of the body. We’ll approach this work both as individual bodies, and as a community body/intersection of bodies & energies. 

Relaxation, touch, focus, awareness, alignment, duration, disorientation, repetition, dream states, non-verbal communication, emptiness/nothingness, ritual and rhythmic entrainment will be threaded throughout our process. We’ll engage in both open-ended containers for exploration (practices that include interpretation/improvisation) and more choreographically specified work (practices in which I give you set actions to experiment inside of). 

This class will retain some of that fun-loving, sweaty vibe of my ongoing class radial diamond kinetics, while going deeper into the state-based, improvisatory, and physical/energetic alignment elements of my work, with a consistent and dedicated group over a 6-week period. 

No dance/performance experience necessary and the class can be adapted for many bodies/abilities. 

Oakwood Community Center, Troy

mapping

Our bodies and perceptions are like the weather, constantly changing. Mapping will be a 3-hour outdoor laboratory that will allow us to become intimate with this internal and external fluctuation through a series of guided movement & awareness practices. By being, observing, and moving outdoors we'll collect new sensory information and have an opportunity to disorient/re-orient ourselves. We might even go so far as to ask: If we spend time outdoors listening, experimenting, developing embodied intimacy with our surroundings, might we "hear" something about the histories, states of being, practices, and entities/bodies that have been made invisible, made non-existent in favor of others? Can we discover lines of communication dampened by certainty, density and speed?

No dance, meditation, or performance experience necessary. Wear comfortable clothing/protection for being outdoors and intimate with the elements for 3 hours. Bring a notebook, pen, bug repellent, sunscreen, and water. 

$10-30 sliding scale

Rain date: July 14

To reserve your spot please Venmo @Hana-vanderKolk or PayPal hjvanderkolk (at) gmail (dot) com

You will receive the location (in Troy) upon registration
