Presentation

With D.ssa Stefania Ruggieri
Saturday 7 July from 4pm to 5pm

This Mat class focuses on the connection and connectivity of all the bodies that we inhabit and that inhabit us. We are complex beings, rich in corporeal systems that operate in a network. Through movement and sounds, from the rooting to the grounding of our four “paws”, we facilitate the transferring of data, union, contact, connection, association between the parts, communication, in this construction of an efficient systemic operation of all these bodies. Let’s connect through inspired movement!
