Upcoming Workshops & Events

'Handstand & mobility'
Cornwall, PZ / Sat 15th June

The MoveMore: Handstand Workshop shares developmental drills & methodology for beginner-to-intermediate practitioners wishing to develop balance on two hands. No previous experience is required.

We build the skill from the ground, up. Participants will walk away with both a conceptual understanding and clear pathway toward their goals. This is supported by a range of drills & programming recommendations toward progressive & sustainable self-directed development.

Further to invaluable tools & perspectives for injury-prevention & complementary mobility development, where appropriate we will also explore fundamental foundations of  strength/skills such as ‘press handstand’, the freestanding handstand pushup, and 3-dimentional handstand walking.

'Breathing & Diaphragm'
Cornwall, PZ / Sun 16th June

“Shut your mouth, and save your life.”

This ‘Breathing & Diaphragm’ (B&D) workshop shares perspectives, principles, and practical tools to begin building your own progressive ‘B&D’ practice.

With ‘Movement’ always as the departure-point & direction, this practice teaches self-administered protocols for mobilising and “cleaning” the respiratory & elimination organs, developing range & movement-patterning of the diaphragm, and management of habitual over-breathing toward health and performance benefits.

The general scope of the workshop includes:

  • Identifying & managing symptoms of ‘dysfunctional breathing’
  • Protocols for manual mobilization of the respiratory & digestive organs
  • Mapping ‘breathing-ranges’ & building diaphragmatic-mobility
  • Increasing CO2 tolerance with Buteyko & apnea-influenced practices

This workshop is accessible & of value to all experience levels. Whilst the material has developed from a wide range of sources & influences, it is NOT based withing or presented from any specific tradition or discipline.

Whether you have an established Yogic-oriented breathing-practice, are a therapeutic, medical, or movement professional, an athlete looking for a performance edge, or simply an enthusiast looking where to begin, this ‘B&D’ workshop will provide you with fundamental tools serving for a lifetime of practice.

Previous Workshops & Events

Foundations workshop:
'Spinal-work' / 14.04.24 / Bern, CH

This ‘Foundations in Locomotion’ workshop presents the subject of ‘Spinal-work’ as an aspect for enriching, developmental Movement practice affecting physical, physiological, and cognitive layers. Further anyone interested in the theme & content, it is valuable to physical artists, dancers, ‘Yogi’s’, and those pursuing ‘bridging’ mobility-forms.

We open with a practical vocabulary of movement patterns focused on the spine & integrated pelvic & scapulae complex leading toward self-directed movement in & through space, as well as with a partner. This will expand into ‘large-frame’ mobility forms such as ‘bridging’ and ‘folding’.

The general scope of the workshop includes:

  • Foundational ‘local’/‘global’ spinal-patterns developing mobility & improving physiological wellness (e.g. circulatory systems & digestive motility).
  • Guiding concepts & principles toward self-directed and “open” contexts of Movement practice, both as individual work and with a partner.
  • An exploration of ‘large-frame’ mobility forms, namely ‘bridging’ and ‘folding’, with guidance on their progressive & sustainable development.

This workshop is accessible to all bodies and abilities – much of the work is very low intensity, and in ‘large-frame’ mobility explorations, all contexts are progressive with the ability to work within/at your own capacities/pace.

Foundations workshop:
'Locomotion' / 21.01.24 / Bern, CH

“We are embracing our movement complexity – and growing from it.”

This ‘Foundations in Locomotion’ workshop opens a doorway to exploring the potential movement-complexity with which the human animal can move through space (i.e. ‘locomote’).

The guiding themes are ‘Quadrupedal’ (on “all 4’s”) and ‘Bipedal’ (on two legs) locomotion, a practice which initially develops physical capacities before leading to efficiency & “fluency”.

The general scope of the workshop includes:

  • Foundational bi-/quadrupedal locomotion patterns developing physical capacities & conditioning.
  • A vocabulary of interconnected transitions & sequences opening toward “free-flowing” improvisation.
  • Concepts & principles supporting ongoing practice, such as ‘levels in space’ and ‘trajectories of motion’.

Whilst accessible to all bodies & abilities (material is scalable to different levels), be advised that, due to the subject-matter, this is innately a very PHYSICAL workshop and so everyone is welcome to work at their own pace.

'Connected-Body' / A Coruña, ES

We take the perspective of an inescapably ‘connected-body’ to direct & inform movement contexts for self-development. Our main themes of investigation are identification & removal of “blockages” on the physical layer, connections with other individuals, and with object world. We inform this through physical practices such as:

Breathing & diaphragm practice
“Emptying” & tension modulation
Structural-textures & adaptability
Stickwork & ‘wielding’
Partnerwork & conflict dynamics
‘Floor-communication’ concepts

As always, the event is open to all bodies & abilities & you are very welcome to join 🐒

This workshop explores reciprocal relationships through which we experience ‘movement’ and how they might be used to frame and direct its physical practice. Our point of departure is the inescapably ‘connected body’ through & from which potentialities meet, interplay, are cultivated & actualised.

The ‘connected body’ is empty of blockages. Internal intention & external impulse find confluence in reciprocal movement. It has the capacity & experience to move, and be moved.

We learn protocols for diagnosing & “emptying” the body through ‘tension modulation’ and ‘breathing & diaphragm’ practices. The ‘empty’ body as clear of “blockages” is questioned in the solo practice of isolated ‘force-generation & transmission’ concepts & expressed in partner & group-work scenarios.

It exists only in connection with & relationship to the bodies and people around it. It is sensitive, communicative, can assimilate and respond. It is receptive & able to AFFECT & BE affected.

We develop ‘structural awareness’ of one’s own & other bodies to cultivate sensitivity & reciprocity in relationship. This is framed in a hands-on practice of “affecting & being affected”, building “comfort in contact”, and exploring ‘productive conflict’ and ‘winnerless competition’ on the play/fight spectrum.

It connects with the object world as an extension of itself, becoming something more than the sum of its parts in the process. It interacts with, manipulates, and is manipulated by it.

We take ‘stickwork’ and ‘wielding’ as themes to explore the subject of ‘object-interaction’, learning a system of universally integrated patterns in which the body/object are inextricable extensions of one another. This new ‘assemblage’ is then expressed in connection with others in group & partner-practice.

It is grounded, inextricably connected in a relationship with gravity. It accepts and adapts to it, is in constant dialogue with it, acts, reacts, and moves in understanding and respect of it.

We explore CONCEPT-oriented approaches to ‘Floor-communication’ for individuals to express and develop their potential. This is empowered by simple ideas which produce a lot of movement, such as ‘weight-shifting’, ‘levels in space’, ‘circles of the body’, generating & transmitting momentum (the ‘spinning-top’) and awareness of  ‘trajectories of motion’.

The workshop is open & accessible to ALL. Material is scalable and allows for practice at one’s individual level & pace.

MoveMore: Class #5

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.

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!

David & Jason

'B&D' / Bern, CH (10.12.23)

“Shut your mouth, and save your life.”

This ‘Breathing & Diaphragm’ (B&D) workshop shares perspectives, principles, and practical tools to begin building your own progressive ‘B&D’ practice.

With ‘Movement’ always as the departure-point & direction, this practice teaches self-administered protocols for mobilising and “cleaning” the respiratory & elimination organs, developing range & movement-patterning of the diaphragm, and management of habitual over-breathing toward health and performance benefits.

The general scope of the workshop includes:

  • Identifying & managing symptoms of ‘dysfunctional breathing’
  • Protocols for manual mobilization of the respiratory & digestive organs
  • Mapping ‘breathing-ranges’ & building diaphragmatic-mobility
  • Increasing CO2 tolerance with Buteyko & apnea-influenced practices

This workshop is accessible & of value to all experience levels. Whilst the material has developed from a wide range of sources & influences, it is NOT based withing or presented from any specific tradition or discipline.

Whether you have an established Yogic-oriented breathing-practice, are a therapeutic, medical, or movement professional, an athlete looking for a performance edge, or simply an enthusiast looking where to begin, this ‘B&D’ workshop will provide you with fundamental tools serving for a lifetime of practice.
