Ethical and Conscious Touch

3 hrs
Expert touch and hands-on feedback is a defining feature of a sophisticated movement teacher. Learn to “listen with your hands” so feedback becomes two-directional. Gain experience observing and assessing opportunity for meaningful and assistive touch. Become sensitized to how a body yields and awakens with purposeful hands-on feedback and guidance.
Learning Objectives:

  • Learn how touch affects a person’s movement
  • Practice how to use your hands in a variety of ways for effective movement outcomes
  • Discover how to analyze your use of touch to ensure its effectiveness
