Amy permissions people into greater vulnerability and authenticity by awakening pathways of intimate awareness, attunement, and subtle energy. She anchors people into their emotional inner world and intuitive body wisdom by slowing down, making space, and embodying what's truly real in every moment. Amy is an L.A. trained actor with a B.A. in TV/film production and has taught yoga/connective movement for the past 8 years. She is also the creator of Underbelly: Discover Your Slow Dance.
Underbelly is a conscious dance experience that explores The Art of Slowing Down with music, movement, and contact, revealing unique states of connection and authenticity. Invite movement from feeling the intimate spaces of your body, breath and being. Cultivate deeper awareness, listening, and attunement as you relate to self, other and space. Go beneath the surface of fast culture and dive into a slow sanctuary for unearthing what is alive for you in every moment. This is a closed container.
In this PLAYshop, we will get silly and go deep, focusing on feeling over form & connection over performance. You might summon your inner flirty pirate or step into one of your favorite mythical archetypes. Or maybe you'll personify your pet as an avenue of self-inquiry. We'll utilize improvisational games a&nd theatrical character development to explore physicality, voice, mannerisms, dialect, truthful emotionality & more. No prerequisites, just your willingness and enthusiasm!
