Sara’s classes are based in realise-technique. Beginning on the floor with breath, slowly awakening sensations, awareness and articulation; stretching the body in an organic and gentle way.
“As we build heat, we move to traveling sequences, using our centre, weight, gravity and direction, releasing tension through movement. We continue then with dynamic, expressive and energetic choreographic standing exercises using the space and coordination with continuous flow.”
