Upcoming Workshops & Events

MoveMore: Class #5 / 11.12.22 / Bern, CH

The ‘MoveMore: Movement Class’ opens an extended space to dig deeper into specific movement themes through individual, collaborative, and collective practice. The series of 4-hour classes take place in Bern CH throughout 2022, and are open to individuals of all levels, abilities, & movement backgrounds.

Topics of focus are determined by the space & time which we occupy. Whilst not necessary to join every class (we explore entirely different material in each), regular attendees will develop a greater understanding of the vast landscape of ‘Movement Practice’, and insights on how we might begin to map it.

With an extended class format (2x 2-hour sessions w/ break), participants can dig deeply into concepts & contexts presented with the support of close guidance & feedback throughout their practice. It is also an opportunity to regularly connect & work with other practitioners & enthusiasts in your local movement community.

Class #5 will explore the theme of transitioning in, out of, and moving in close proximity to & in contact with the floor. We will explore efficiency, inefficiency, and everything in between by creating both “open” contexts (partner-work & guided improvisation) and “closed” contexts (reproducible techniques & sequences) of practice.

Whilst drawing inspiration from a range of floor-connected disciplines & practices, as always, we will highlight the TRANSFERABLE concepts which both connect and allow the practitioner to step OUTSIDE of them, stripping back name & form to focus on general movement concepts which the individual can explore, practice, and apply on their own terms.

Each class includes a space for guided preparation & finishing (‘warm-up/down’) appropriate to the material shared.
 


Date & time:

 – Sunday 11th December 2022
 – From 11:00 – 15:30 (2x 2-hour sessions w/30 min break)

This full-day workshop is an opportunity to dive in and expose oneself to the proposition of a
‘Movement Practice’. We will develop & explore a range of scenarios toward “mapping” areas for structured exploration, outlining practical concepts & perspectives which can positively inform ANY physical practice, discipline, or sport in both recreational & professional fields.

During our day together we will outline and de-/reconstruct subjects such as:*

·         Physical preparedness & capacities: methods of developing attributes adaptable to a range of movement scenarios, rather than, but also benefiting, specific disciplines, sports, or systems of physical “training”. A more 3-dimentional approach to subjects such as strength, mobility, injury prevention/rehabilitation are presented in alignment with longevity & sustainability in practice.

·         Play & fight: a movement aspect innate to all animals, rather than opposites, we explore “play/fight” as a SPECTRUM on which a potential for deep movement development lies. We create both individual & partner/group contexts in the spirit of an “infinite game”, one designed for the purpose of the continuation, rather than cessation, of its learning experience.

·         Floor-communication: the complexity of human movement is charmingly exposed in exploring the different ways we can move at various levels through space. From 2-feet & all-4’s to the world of floor-contact and everything between, a principle-based approach equips the practitioner with an immediate vocabulary to explore their body in movement.

·         Breathing & diaphragm: we strip back breathing practices to practical approaches proven in study & practice to improve general wellbeing, physical performance, and symptoms of common breathing dysfunctions. Simple principles and accessible structures for practice facilitate the practitioner’s ongoing & independent practice.

Although exploring through the body, all material is scalable and everyone is challenged according to their own level and will. Activity is interspersed with reflection, and the contexts are balanced & connected in such a way that one’s experience is not subject to individual physical capacity.

Everyone will leave with a sense of being truly “moved” in a broad sense of the word, both from within and in social connection with the group on the day, and you are warmly invited to share the experience 🐒

*Specific content cannot be guaranteed as it changes with the anticipated group and every space/time. Participants will receive supporting information on all material shared after the workshop to support ongoing practice & learning.

Date & time:

 – Saturday 17th December ’22
 – From 10:30 – 5:30pm (2x session w/lunch break)

Cost:

 – Regular: £75 / Concession: £65*

MPCH Workshop no. 4

(English below)

In diesem Workshop kollaborieren David Nyffenegger (Zürich Movement Practice) und Jason Round (Movement Practice Bern) zum vierten Mal zusammen, um ihre Bewegungspraxis und Perspektive im Rahmen des Projekts Movement Practice Switzerland zu teilen. Dieses Event findet wieder im Raum Zürich statt, und zwar in einer ländlichen Umgebung, nahe Kloten.

Diese Eventserie ist offen für alle Individuen, jeden Erfahrungshintergrund und Level. Unser Material ist komplett skalierbar und für einen breiten Anwendungsbereich geeignet. Ebenso ist dieses Event eine gute Gelegenheit um seine Kenntnisse im Bezug «Movement» zu erweitern, sich zu vernetzen und sich mit gleichgesinnten Bewegungsenthusiast*Innen aus der ganzen Schweiz auszutauschen.

Für diejenigen die im Bewegungsbereich arbeiten oder sich viel damit beschäftigen, ist dieses Workshop eine gute Gelegenheit, um sich neue Perspektiven, Konzepte und Bewegungskontexte anzueignen und diese in die eigen Praxis zu integrieren. Für Anfänger und Interessierte ist dieses Event ein guter Anknüpfungspunkt um die Breite und Tiefe dieser Thematik zu erfahren und diese selbstständig oder mit Partnern weiterzuführen.

____________________________

In this workshop, David Nyffenegger (Zürich Movement Practice) and Jason Round (Movement Practice Bern) collaborate once again to share their practice, research, and perspectives on ‘Movement’ for the project ‘Movement Practice, Switzerland’ (MPCH). This time we return to canton Zürich, in a rural area, close to Kloten.

The series of events is open to individuals of all experience levels & practice backgrounds, with all material entirely scalable and having broad applicability. It also provides an opportunity to learn, connect, and practice with other enthusiasts and practitioners in your local movement community.

For those who work with, or are deeply invested in, the subject of Movement, this workshop shares perspectives, concepts, and movement contexts which we hope contribute valuably to your ongoing practice and learning. For beginners and enthusiasts, it will further expose the breadth and potential of ‘Movement’ as a subject for exploration & investigation in individual, and partner/group practice.

In diesem vierten Event der „MPCH“ fokussieren wir uns auf das Wechselspiel zwischen Anspannung und Entspannung im Körper, der Beziehung zwischen Kraft und Effizienz, dem Konzept der mechanischen Bevorzugung/Benachteiligung in der Bewegung und der Konditionierung durch die Absorbierung der Masse im Ober- und Unterkörperbereich.

Für unsere Untersuchungen zu diesen Themen bedienen wir uns verschieden Frameworks, zu denen Bewegungsszenarios, Partnerübungen, Spiele etc. gehören. Diese verschiedene Herangehensweisen helfen uns die jeweiligen Themen zu dekonstruieren, verorten und schliesslich zu praktizieren. Zu den Hauptthemen, die wir sowohl praktisch als auch konzeptuell erschliessen, gehören unter anderem

  • Partner- und Gruppenübungen und Spiele
  • Kraft, Effizienz, Schwerpunkt und Auflagefläche
  • Das Sehen der Spannung und Strukturelle Mechanik im Körper
  • Das Erschaffen und Brechen von Körperformen
  • Spannungsvermögen und das Ausüben von „Leerung“

Alle Übungen und Kontexte sind skalierbar und somit für jedes Level zugänglich.

Wir freuen 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 viertägigen Event begrüssen zu dürfen!

______________________________

In the fourth instalment of ‘MPCH’, we focus on the interplay between tension and “softness” in the body, relationship between strength vs. efficiency, the concept of mechanical dis-/advantage in movement, and conditioning through receiving forces in both upper & lower-body contexts.

Our exploration is framed by a range of progressive movement scenarios, tasks, and games through which we will begin to unpack, map, and practice our topics. They will offer both practical and conceptual tool for development through contexts & themes such as:

  • Partner and group-work, games & play scenarios
  • Strength, efficiency, centre of mass & bases of support
  • Developing a practical eye for structural mechanics and tension in the body
  • “Making” and “breaking” physical forms
  • Tension management & the practice of ‘Emptying’

All contexts and movement scenarios are scalable, making them accessible for ALL levels.

We very much look forward to sharing our individual & collaborative research once more. Through this series we hope to bring together movement enthusiasts from across Switzerland and beyond and promote networking in the community – you are very welcome to join!
