Back bending/ spinal mobility. 

Greetings all!! Hoping you’re well. Been doing more reflecting why and how yoga+GYROKINESIS® came into my life. About 5/6 years ago (roughly) I found myself feeling compressed in more ways than physically. I realized, I’d been taking on many loads in ways unhealthy for me. Went into one of my daily dance classes one day. Began the usual routine of pre warm and and warm up. I went into a few stretches I’ve done for years and felt an incredibly large amount of pain!! My heart sank and I began flashing through my life, in this body. Changes needed to happen..  The pose I shared here, is recent. But it is one of the positions that was a wake up for me, it was no longer being accessible. My journey began, from there..

Coast to Coast

Greetings all! Once again, I am  coast to coast. One of my favorite travels. The time change plus, the seasonal changes this time around, are an interesting and emotional one. I am still, very much aware of the shifting, shedding , changing, regrouping, contemplating feelings involved in this part of the year. Except, I am happily embracing the higher amount of sunlight I can have where I am, right now. versus, the Big City, where there are larger buildings to block out the light. Anyhow, I am enjoying this opportunity to venture out, once again. Have a great day fine folks!   enjoy yourself!

Expression vs Perception

Greetings! Today is the perfect day for research and reflection! I woke this morning to a strong desire to look internally at how I was feeling and growing very much as a woman/artist. The topics of the day are: Expression vs Perception. Expression: the process of making one’s thoughts or feelings. Perception: the ability to see, hear, or become aware of something through the senses. Which brings me to even more realization of the reason as to why I have taken such a liking to the  exploration of butoh and the further knowledge of the classical for of dance, Ballet. These two forms are complete opposites of each other. Ballet: revolves around the mastery of the strict technique itself. It is a form of art, which makes it expressive, through the technique and artistry. Entertaining the audience and playing a role, character and or a story. And butoh, A more recent form of art(est.1960s) comes from the foundation of pure and unguarded expressionism, born out of the need to break out of rules and boundaries of the body and mind. Not usually focused on there being judgement, entertainment or acknowledgement of the audience. Not at all like a tutu and or corset, or even a leotard. Interesting process for me. I will continue to explore, for it will be very useful  during my process of further Creativity and Growth. In general. Please feel free to share your thoughts, comments, etc with me. Thanks for taking the time to read and follow. Enjoy the rest of this day!

Sanity/Insanity

Hey there!! I really appreciate those that take the time to read my blogs. This is the very beginning and as time goes on, I’ll get clearer and more defined, as with just about anything we put our minds to! Anyhow, I was in the mood to write tonight. But, I didn’t want this blog to come off as a big ol’ Venting Session!! Jeeze….life in “The Big Apple” even though Manhattan is not very big at all, can be all the way live!! And intense. But, like I said, I do not want to make this a Venting Session!! I just want to let you all know that I am as well as I can be through all the concrete, masses of human bodies orbiting blindly at times around each other and that, I am still very much focused on keeping my body finely tuned and ready to create! And that goes for my mind and heart as well. Thanks for stopping by and see you soon!! P Continue reading
