Experiential Anatomy and Kinesiology with G. Hoffman Soto

Experiential Anatomy and Kinesiology with G. Hoffman Soto

October 20-22, 2020 (10:00-12:30pm) (3 morning ONLINE classes)

(Included in the Somatic Education Module at Moving On Center – School of Participatory Arts and Somatic Research)

This brief introduction into Anatomy and Kinesiology is designed to inspire students interest in the material so they are stimulated to continue learning on their own both with the homework assignments and through their own interests and curiosity. The subject will funnel though the bones, muscles and movements of the Pelvis and the Ileofemoral Joint. Visual aids, touch, movement, drawing and somatization will be the tools for embodiment of the material.

Phone: 510-524-5013.

Access info: Unfortunately the Finnish Hall is not wheelchair accessible. There are (a number of) steps to get into the space, and the bathrooms are not wheelchair accessible.

$175 for the entire workshop (3 mornings). No one-day drop-ins.
