Movement Workshop No. 3 / BERN / 28-29 Aug '21

(English below)

In diesem Workshop werden David Nyffenegger (Zürich Movement Practiceund Jason Round (Movement Practice Bernzum dritten Mal gemeinsam ihre Practice, Research, und Perspektiven zum Thema «Movement» zu teilen.

Dieser Event dient dazu, eine Plattform zu sein, um eine Community aus «Movement Practitioners» zu etablieren, die sich als «Movement Practice Switzerland» versteht. Diese Bewegung sieht sich als Teil der globalen «Movement Culture» und dient zur gegenseitigen Vernetzung, Förderung und Austausch.

Für Personen die professionell mit dem Thema Bewegung arbeiten (Athleten, Trainer, Tänzer, Yogis…) dient dieser Workshop dazu ihre Kenntnisse in spezifischen Kontexten zu vertiefen und das Konzept «Movement» Disziplin übergreifend zu verorten. Für Anfänger*innen, die sich erst seit kurzem mit «Movement» beschäftigen, bietet dieser Workshop sehr viele Übungen und Konzepte um eine nachhaltige Movement Practice aufzubauen.

——————————————

In this workshop, David Nyffenegger (Zürich Movement Practice) and Jason Round (Movement Practice Bern) will share their practice, research, and perspectives on the subject ‘Movement’ for the third time.

This series of events is open to ALL experience levels. It provides a platform to support & connect a community of “Movement Practitioners” in the common interest of “Movement Practice Switzerland” and the global “Movement Culture”, serving for mutual networking, promotion and exchange.

For people who work professionally with the topic of movement (athletes, coaches, dancers, yogis…), this workshop will deepen their knowledge in specific contexts and to locate the concept of “movement” across disciplines. For beginners, it will offer many exercises, tools and ideas to build a progressive & sustainable movement practice.

In diesem lang erwarteten Event, der die dritte Zusammenkunft der «Movement Practice Switzerland» repräsentiert, fokussieren wir uns auf die Beziehung zwischen Schwerpunkt und Achsen im Körper bei der Navigation im Raum. Für Bewegungen die sowohl im Stehen, am Boden und dazwischen vollzogen werden, dient uns «Low Gait» als reichhaltiges Konzept der zwei- und vierbeinigen Fortbewegung.

 Unser Ziel ist es, die Teilnehmer*Innen sowohl mit konzeptuellen als auch mit praktischen Tools auszustatten, um für die allgegenwärtigen Elemente Boden und Schwerkraft mehr Bewusstsein zu schaffen. Wir bedienen uns verschiedenen Strukturen von Übungen um ein reiches Vokabular an Bewegungen zu erkunden. Weitere Kontexte und Themen sind:

  • Partnerübungen und Spiele
  • Locomotion, Übergänge, Sequenzen
  • Prehabilitation und „Proofing“
  • Spannungsvermögen
  • Achsen im Körper
  • Atmung und Zwerchfellübungen
Die Übungen und Themen sind so konzipiert, dass sie für jedes Level zugänglich sind und notfalls angepasst werden können.

Trotz Verzögerung freuen wir uns darauf, unsere individuelle und kollaborative Arbeit einmal mehr teilen zu dürfen. Wir hoffen mit diesem Event wieder Bewegungsenthusiast*Innen aus der ganzen Schweiz zu vereinen und die Vernetzung der Community zu fördern. Wir freuen uns dich bei diesem zweitägigen Event begrüssen zu dürfen!

 ——————————————

In this long-awaited event, which represents the third gathering of “Movement Practice Switzerland”, we will focus on the relationship between the center of gravity and the axes in the body when navigating in space. For movement performed standing, toward floor-contact & everything in between, the topic of ‘low-gait’ will provide a rich field of practice for both bipedal & quadrupedal locomotion.

Our goal is to equip the participants with both conceptual & practical tools to bring awareness to the inescapable relationship of our bodies with the floor & gravity. Throughout the workshop we will explore a rich vocabulary of movement through contexts & themes such as:

  • Partner-contexts & games
  • Locomotion, transitions, sequences
  • Prehabilitation & ‘proofing’
  • Tension management
  • Axes of the body
  • Breathing & diaphragm practice
The exercises are designed in such a way that they are accessible and can be adapted for EVERY level.
 

Despite delays, we look forward to sharing our individual & collaborative work once more. Through this series we hope to unite movement enthusiasts from all across Switzerland and promote networking in the community. We look forward to welcoming you to this long-awaited, two-day event!

Movement Workshop No. 3 / BERN
28th & 29th November '20


In the third installment of ‘Movement Practice, CH’ workshops, we look forward to connecting with the ‘London Movement Group’ through movement practitioner & teacher, Wil Brown.

Sharing for the first time alongside Jason Round (Movement Practice, Bern & the MoveMore project), the 2-day workshop will present perspectives on interrelated aspects of each teacher’s research & practice. It is a collaboration in which common ground is found through the meta-title of ‘Movement’.

The event is open to all (no experience required), and represents an effort to connect, build, and support a community of local and global movement practitioners within a worldwide ‘movement culture’. 


Though taking different influences, perspectives, departure points, and movement contexts, the workshop syllabus represents innate commonalities found in Wil & Jason’s work. Some propositions & subjects for exploration include:

  • Broad concepts for efficient & creative movement through space
  • Structural ‘sensitivity’ in one’s body and toward others
  • Basic rolls, cartwheels, and floor-acrobatics
  • Partner-work traversing play & fight
  • Pendulums, pivots, arcs, waves, 8’s
  • Breathing & diaphragm practice

The material will present a micro-to-macro range of investigation, whereby movement on the ‘small scale’ finds commonalities to the ‘large scale’. The practice, then, is to marry them together by mapping what lies between.

In this first opportunity to bring together their experiences & influences from the world of movement, Will and Jason very much look forward to sharing individual and collective syntheses from a variety of movement practices as presented and through the eyes of a general movement perspective. You are very welcome to join!

*This workshop is open to all – no experience required.
*Instruction is in English with possibility of German translation.


Date & time:
– Saturday 28th – Sunday 29th November 2020
– 11:00 – 19:00 both days (2x 3+ hour sessions 90 mins lunch)

(Top floor, second studio on the right)

Please bring:
– A notebook and pen if you wish to retain information
– Fluids/snacks

COVID notice:
We accept the possibility that the event may be cancelled with little notice. In this case, full refunds will be given for the ticket cost only (no flights or accommodation).

Movement Workshop No. 2 / ZÜRICH
Sunday 19 July '20

In this workshop, David Nyffenegger (Zürich Movement Practiceand Jason Round (Movement Practice Bern) will be collaborating for the second time to share some of their practice, research, and perspective on the subject ‘Movement’.

The event is open to all (no experience required), and represents an effort connect, build, and support a community of movement practitioners throughout Switzerland as part of a worldwide ‘movement culture’.

This is the second of an ongoing series of workshops in which participants can learn, share, & connect across their local community through the common interest in and practice of Movement.

How adaptable is your practice? Recent global events have taught us that if we aim to be independent practitioners, an ability to develop self-directed contexts exploring laterally across various movement aspects is necessary. Without this, individual practice can become at best limited & uninspired, at worst mindless to non-existent.

During the workshop we will propose and investigate a variety of perspectives, subjects, scenarios, principles, and tools to help inform and direct a “solo movement practice”. Our goal is to empower participants with a variety of movement frames characterised by independence & self-reliance, exploring subjects such as:

  • Contexts for strength & mobility development
  • Rhythm, timing, coordination
  • Locomotion & floor-communication
  • Task-based movement projects
  • Breathing & diaphragm practice

Throughout the work we will reflect on how to build and sustain a structured & explorative Movement Practice in accordance with your own evolving “movement thumbprint”, as well as our goal to help connect, build, and support a wider community of practitioners throughout Switzerland. You are very welcome to join.

*This workshop is open to all – no experience is required.
*Workshop is carried out in English & German

Date & time:

– Sunday 19th July 202
– From 11:00 – 19:00 (2x 3+ hour sessions w/90 min break)

Cost:
– CHF 120.-
– Spaces are LIMITED

Location:
Quartierzentrum Schütze
Heinrichstrasse 238
8005, Zürich
Room Flex 5 (subterrain)

*Weather depending, we will also be practicing outdoor. Please bring:

– A notebook and pen if you wish to retain information
– Shoes suitable for outdoor movement
– Suncream where necessary
– Fluids/snacks
– Your own lunch where possible (options are limited on Sunday)

The event is open to all (no experience required), and represents an effort connect, build, and support a community of movement practitioners throughout Switzerland as part of a growing worldwide ‘movement culture’.

We hope this to be just the first of an ongoing series of workshops through which participants can continue to learn, share, & connect across their local community.

How complex is your structure? We will investigate the adaptability of the body’s internal architecture in a variety of movement contexts to help us learn more about our individual movement restrictions and potential. Remaining curious toward the unfamiliar & unknown, our exploration will take us laterally across a range of subjects for the purpose of developing movement experience, such as:

  • Partner-work & play/fight
  • Prehabilitation & usable range (mobility)
  • Segmentation and torsion of the spine
  • Dexterity of the arms
  • Coordination & ‘Organic’ strength
  • Floor-patterns & sequencing

Throughout the work we will reflect on how to build and sustain a structured & explorative Movement Practice in accordance with your own evolving “movement thumbprint”, as well as our goal to help connect, build, and support a wider community of practitioners throughout Switzerland. You are very welcome to join.
