A full bodied movement experience infused with yoga, martial arts, afro-latin and contemporary dance begins with an extensive warm-up to open the body’s organic flow, developing core strength and flexibility. Floor work releases tension and settles the bones in alignment. Phrase work encourages fluidity, velocity and expansive movement. Garcia’s technique balances effort and ease, locating the axis in suspension to create energetic momentum.www.classclassclass.org
