About this class:

Muscle Memory meditations & Sonic portals

In this time together we will explore how sound vibrates in the body and how it's embodied in the muscle memories of our many lives. The moments of joy, peace, trouble, sorrow, confusion, and healing are all apart of our inner constellations. Within those moments there are imprints of sounds that are left with us. Sonic portals that remind us of who we were, how we feel, & where we are. What is it to dive deeper in those portals? We will get lost and found in a sonic portal brainstorm to unlock sacred sounds and memories that live in the body. We will explore parts of sequential movement, touch resonators, take note of the emotional conjuring of the voice, Hum lullabies, & listen to sounds and memories that live in the air pockets of our joints. Creating & Emodying mantras to open new tools of healing and play around themes of purging and renewing.

Movement Research Zoom Etiquette:

Since many of us are new to taking class on Zoom, MR has compiled some etiquette guidelines to ensure that everyone’s time in class is full and respected.

  1. We ask that you "mute" yourself at all times, unless Faculty has asked you to verbally participate.
  2. If you’re dropping in to see how this class might suit you, please keep your video off. Send a message to just your instructor ("Chat" > "Chat with Host") so that they know that this is what you’re doing. It can be disorienting for both your instructor and fellow participants to see a video that is turned off, or one in which someone is inattentive.
  3. Have a question or concern? Use the chat function to communicate with the class and/or teacher.

Thank you! We hope you enjoy class!

This online class is FREE! We welcome donations of any size on our Support page here >>
