inhibition, undoing, non-doing, and stillness in movement: tai chi chuan and alexander technique
with phyllis richmond
tuesday aug 11, 14:00 - 16:00
venue: C1-060, Main Building (level 1)
This workshop will introduce the practice of Tai Chi Chuan to explore undoing, non-doing, and stillness in activity, paying particular attention to Inhibition. We will practice letting go of one thing in order to do something else, expending only as much effort as necessary, letting natural forces (like gravity and pendular motion) move us. We will learn to find stillness in movement and movement in stillness to allow more comfortable, more efficient, and effortless movement, whatever we may be doing.
