The Bodies are Infinite Monday Morning Class series exists to offer diverse physical experiences that encourage growth, exploration, and healing to all bodyminds!
Dec 11 and 18: Stacy Dawson Stearns


In Moving Thinking we will generate original movement patterns and sequences, so come on out if you want/need to create and would like someone to prompt you to do it with care. We will use Ideokinesis Toys in warmup, including the beloved Soma Bag of Olde and even Uncle Buddy’s Revenge!. We will use tactile sensory imagery to open the bodymind to MOVING THINKING, which is really just a fancy way of letting movement be thinking, rather than being a diminished result of thinking. Come celebrate with Stacy as she emerges from her early, temporary retirement like a Phoenix from the flames- off the hook and freer than ever!
