This workshop is open to anyone who identifies as transgender or non-binary
Our bodies hold many emotions and tensions, and many Trans and Non-Binary folks have difficult feelings and relationships to the body. Yet it physically holds us together and brings together our very self, connecting us to others. In this workshop we will explore different ways of thinking about the body, and various ways of moving.
Inspired by somatic approaches to movement (e.g. Skinner Releasing Technique, Authentic Movement, Feldenkrais), these workshops will be gentle and relaxing. Offerings of increase in body awareness, mindful movement, moving without judgement, and exploring how to move in ways we want to in a safe environment.
We welcome trans and non-binary folks from all movement backgrounds and experience. Those with little to no movement experience are particularly encouraged to join this session. It will be very open and chill, an offering of a space to move, reflect, play and rest, with time at the end of the session to draw, write and discuss any sensations that may arise.
Tickets are pay-what-you-can, please book your space
