As a somatic practice, Bartenieff Fundamentals sm focuses on movement as a process of deepening sensory awareness. This approach enhances self awareness and personal growth. Regular practice of Bartenieff Fundamentals supports the development of dynamic alignment, coordination, strength, flexibility, mobility, kinesthetic awareness and expression, as well as aids in the reduction of physical injuries and increases our ability to cope with stress.
In a 15 hour introductory course we explore the global themes of Exertion/Recuperation, Stability/Mobility, Function/Expression, Inner/Outer. When you learn the basic 6 movement sequences you will discover relationships between: Developmental Patterns and our movement experience; The breath and core support; Kinetic Chains involved in movement initiation and sequencing; Centres of gravity/levity; Shifts of weight and dynamic alignment.
The knowledge and skills gained in this introductory course are easily integrated into the teaching or practice of dance, Yoga, Pilates Fitness training, and any body/mind practice.
