8:00-9:30 Noyes Rhythm led by Emily Mott, 9:40-10:50 Robin, 10:50-Midnight TBA

January 30, 2015 @ 8:00 PM – 11:59 PM

Noyes Rhythmis a century-old movement practice emphasizing the relationship between image and movement. This workshop begins with an exploration of Noyes principles of alignment and elementary Noyes techniques guided by both physics similes and symbols from nature. After establishing this foundational vocabulary, participants will experience a traditional Noyes recreation class, an image-driven improvisational journey infused with beautiful music. The Noyes class consists of three parts: an opportunity to shed self-conscious awareness of ourselves as people, the practice of technique to develop strength and coordination, and the release of the body into image-driven, free movement. Noyes movement follows organic, energetic pathways and cultivates inner awareness of harmony, strength, freedom, and joy.
