THE CONNECTION CREATURE with Zoe Cobb
Exploring identity, self development and group dynamics through movement
A deep exploration of self-awareness using the physical body as a starting place, this workshop aims to hone our authentic self, allowing us to experience real connection in a group of diverse people.
Zoë has spent 15 years refining movement techniques and exercises that allow individuals a deeper self-knowledge and provide tools to playfully and openly explore group dynamics.
The workshop is all about discovery and igniting curiosity. It allows us to find new and maybe unexpected ways to move, to explore the edges of our awareness and connect other people in the group move and respond.
It focuses on how to listen to and trust our responses to situations, how to open up and appreciate our innate and sensorial reactions. Using movement exercises and active listening participants explore a deeper sense of embodied self and how that self-awareness plays out with the dynamics of the group.
We welcome all levels of fitness. Suitable for 18+
What to wear/ bring: Loose clothes, water and a blanket.
