Professional Class: Mathieu Geffré
Mathieu Geffré's class lightly borrows from the fundamental patterns of Cunningham technique, supported by notions of Fasciatherapy.
We try to establish our sense of verticality without compromising the notion of movement.
Supported by an important use of musicality, the class focuses on activating the stabilizers and a strong centre in order to find efficiency within movement. We intend to build a body that is centred but alert and in motion. Starting from some simple standing exercises, the class slowly challenges the body’s reactivity. Technical though accessible to all, the training is above all about reconnecting with the pleasure of motion.
No class on Thursday 25 October
