Lightness in Grounding: Special Livestream Class with Lia Suzuki Sensei
January 20 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am PST
Lightness in Grounding
This week’s theme will be “Lightness in Grounding.”
Training online brings its own set of challenges. Often times we catch ourselves straining to see details on our screen, at the expense of maintaining our posture and structure. And we stop moving.
Lia Sensei encourages us to continue our movement and embrace the space in which we happen to find ourselves – all the while guiding us through thoughtful verbal instruction.
She not only draws our attention to the angles and lines of the footwork as we move around our spaces, but also the lines and angles within our own structure.
All this is delivered in a warm and welcoming atmosphere, with attention to mindfulness and awareness. Connecting one-on-one with each student, everyone leaves the class with clear tasks for improvement and growth, as well as a feeling of renewal.
