Generating comfort within your own skin.

Rooted Movement seminars provide experiences that plant Idea Seeds.  They’re perennial and continue to grow when nurtured with intentional, playful practice.

-Let the ideas have a place in your thoughts.

-Play with and apply them when thought of.

-Ask all questions, follow where they lead.

-Repeat, indefinitely.


Rooted Movement: Canopy focuses on Upper Body anatomy and Economy of Motion during the expression of force through the hands and arms (influenced by Wing Chun Kung Fu and the pioneering Martial Arts work of Bruce Lee), and will plant these Idea Seeds:

1. Feelings of Myofascial balance and resiliently powerful musculoskeletal tensegrity.

2. A relaxed, sensitive, grounded center and structure.

3. Thinking like a tree: vertical access to Chi (Life force).

4. Sensation-Awareness-Release cycle, the opposite of the pain-spasm-pain cycle. Explore the possibilities that lie beyond no-sensation toward ecstasy.

5. Release to move, move to release. (Non-telegraphic, distally-intrinsically-recruited economy of motion.) -Nuggets of Martial Arts wisdom thanks to Bruce Lee.

Make every moment of your day a meditation and practice in soft, open, sensitive, energetic, conscious, intentionally grounded and supported center.

Deepen your experience.
