Rosen Method Movement

4-Day Movement Intensive 

Rosen Method Movement encourages natural, free breathing and uses gentle stretching, swinging and exercises to improve body alignment and flexibility.

 

Restore your body’s capacity for freedom and ease of movement!

The 4-Day Movement Intensive is all about mindful movement and moving from the inside out. During a Rosen Method Movement Intensive, you will discover patterns of tension and habits of movement that have been causing pain or limiting your potential and learn how moving with ease can open up new possibilities for the freedom and joyful expression of movement. The effect is often restorative and liberating as you begin to inhabit yourself with greater awareness and self-compassion.

About Rosen Method Movement

Movement Class with Marion Rosen, Founder of Rosen Method

During each class the joints of the body are moved through their full range of motion. Supported by music, this movement is done in a lively group setting. Some movements are done individually, others with partners or in a circle. The class allows people to release physical holding and in the process, to rediscover the joy of movement. For those with limitations the effect is often restorative. The class provides a spacious, joyful sense of one's body at rest and in daily activity. This easy and pleasurable exercise provides a thorough method for maintaining fluid motion over the years.
