Connected Movement in a Nutshell

So, what happens in a connected movement lesson? Connected Movement is an ongoing class. The activity is mostly experiential. Theory is only valuable in this lesson if it can be felt through the body. We have exercises in which we are standing up, especially Qigong exercises, we have others in which we lie on mats, similar to Alexander or Feldenkrais lessons, and we have pair work. We are especially interested in movements that are new to us, since we want to learn learning. With this goal in mind each lesson includes some routines we repeat from week to week, understanding them better and putting new content into them, while other exercises we do only once, thus allowing ourselves to keep e

First Open To The Public Connected Movement Lesson Takes Place

After holding multiple beta testing and special audiences classes I am happy and excited to come out to the public with my new class.

Connected Movement and Martial Arts

Martial artists have much to gain by practicing Connected Movement, both by getting better as martial artists and by learning to apply their

Shedding New Light On Our Habits

A key component in the Connected Movement method is re-examining deeply rooted habits, or motoric patterns: the automated solutions we have to any situation that requires us to respond by moving. Even our most simple movements entail the use of many muscle groups and the reorganization of our spine. None of us moves the same, because our movement reflects not only our unique body structure but also our different history, type of training and personality. In real time, while we are performing our every day activities we do not stop and think how we do things and whether the action we are taking is the best possible solution for our needs. In our lessons these movements become our center of at

A Typical Connected Movement Class

We start and end each class with the same simple Qikung routine. Repeating the same routine week after week and opening and closing the lesson with it gives us a snapshot of where we are, and what we learned in each lesson. We then turn to do some pair work that focuses on interaction and attention to our partner’s actions and sharpening our nonverbal communication. This work is typically playful and dynamic. We then separate again and turn inwards to do a refined and attentive individual movement lesson. This stage is typically done on the floor. The atmosphere changes to a more meditative mood. We re pair again to do asymmetrical work: one person leads and the other becomes passive. The ex

Experiential vs. Authority Base Learning

As a kid, I loved reading history books. I couldn’t have enough of them. But I read them the way a child reads a story: my attention was on the story and not on the historian. Even when I came across conflicting reports of specific historical events, the writer’s agenda and credibility were non of my concern. It gave me comfort knowing there is an omniscient author who provided me with irrefutable facts. This kind of comfort a child is looking for in some authority erodes as we lose our innocence. As we become more sophisticated, we usually become also more sceptical. However most of what we usually consider as knowledge stems from some authority or another: a book, a person we consider an “

Connected Movement Now Offered in Mental Health Community Center

I am excited to announce our new Connected Movement lesson in the Mental Health Community Center. The lesson is offered as a part of a holistic basket of services provided as non- clinical support for people battling mental problems. I regard this program as a pilot to see how CM can adapt to fit a population that is mentally in turbulent stage.

Bye Bye Touch & Go, hello Connected Movement

After much deliberation, and after consulting with professionals who also experienced the method we came to the conclusion that the name Touch & Go, to which I was personally attached will be replaced with the name Connected Movement for the sake of clarity and simplicity. The name Connected Movement describes in a nutshell the purpose of the lesson and the feeling students experience. So what are we connecting? A few things. So here are a few: Body and self- We connect the mind as the commander of the body with the mind as an explorer of our body Introspect and interspect- We connect dwelling into ourselves with reaching out for the other Emotions and Movement We connect to the inner child
