Play with weight and tension, explore alignment and revel in sensory moving.

Read on for more information on Kinetics. Kinetic Awareness, developed by Elaine Summers of Judson Church Dance Theatre, offers movement education, experiential anatomy, skeletal re-alignment, injury and chronic pain relief and major stress reduction. It is an essential tool in connecting with the somato-sensory system and in rejuvenating the body/mind. Kinetics is a sensory experience of weight and tension developed through personal observation of proprioceptive and kinaesthetic processes. Lying on various sized air-filled balls, massaging soft tissue, and exploring anatomy with slow, gentle movements; relaxes the muscle, quiets the mind, releases joints and allows the unwinding of the fascial highway.
