Olios: Drop-in classes led by professors
Belief Lives in the Body
Ways to communicate and share the corporeal in the online space
How do we affect each other when we are not in the same physical space? Distance learning has become a necessity for many, from the institutional to the recreational. The online learning industry is projected to pass $370 billion by 2026 and closures of many brick-and-mortar fitness centers have asked the exercise and movement industry to pivot to online and hybrid models. As educators and students who work with the body, how do we reach across this digital space and affect one another practically, mystically, and authentically?
In this Olio we will play with techniques for how to teach and learn the body online. Using Katonah Yoga theory, a decolonization lens, and a creative arts healing process, we’ll unravel and re-wrap why it is we do what we do and where that emerges from within. Be prepared for the reflective, the conversational, and the experiential. This workshop is specially designed for teachers and students who work with the body. If you are a yoga teacher, martial artist, movement student, embodiment coach, dance instructor, anything beyond and in-between, I hope you can join us. How do we prepare for distance and continue to strengthen the connection of our bodies as we expand and contract in our environments, including spilling into the digital world?
Nikki Calonge (she/her/siya) studies the relationship between movement and soul. She is currently pursuing her MS in Dance/Movement Therapy at the Pratt Institute. She offers well-informed yoga classes, remotely and in-person. Together, we deconstruct, develop, and edify the posture for each person with emphasis on process, never product.
