Walk of Life Training in Non-stylised and Environmental Movement with Helen Poynor RDMP, RSMTsm

Applications for 2014 – 2015 Training now being considered

The Walk of Life Training attracts regional, national and international participants from a wide range of movement backgrounds.  It consists of three 5 day intensive sessions in autumn, winter, and spring/summer combined with ongoing personal practice.

The training is grounded in an experiential understanding of the structure of the body, an awareness of the relationship between the moving body and the self, and of the responsive inter-relationship between body, earth, self and environment.  In a process which unfolds over time each participant is supported to follow the evolution of their movement practice within the context of the group.  This approach fosters an embodied sense of presence in daily life and in performance.

The grounding principles are explored in the studio and in the inspiring environments of the Jurassic Coast in South West UK.  Movement scores are used as springboards into motion, awakening vitality and heightening awareness. The natural environment becomes both partner and teacher.  The changing seasons, weather and tides present continual challenges, each element stimulates different experiences and elicits a different range of movement qualities and skills.
