Cunningham Technique Workshop Series
with Movement Instructor Lauren Haug

Sundays, 6:00 – 7:00 pm
August 7th, 14th, and 21st
September 4th, 11th, and 18th

Designed to create strength and flexibility of both the body and the mind, Cunningham technique is wonderful for all people, with or without a dance background.

In this series, we will discover increased spatial awareness and rhythmic accuracy. Full of brain teasers, slow and fast movements, this class is light, fun, and playfully challenging. The progression of class is aimed to warm up the body, to stretch and strengthen the muscles, and practice finding new coordination and shapes the body can make. For the most part, this class is low impact and can be quite stationary, however there is a short, light jumping portion as well as some simple traveling across the floor.

Come wearing what you would wear for yoga or to work out.

Drop ins welcome.

COST: $20 per class or $50 per 3 week series payable through Venmo, Zelle, or cash or check.
