Architectural Movement Classes


 All classes under the umbrella of Architectural Movement may be substituted for Architectural Yoga (as the methodology is similar though the movements utilized differ) when space and equipment don't allow the application of movements such as  pulling and brachiation. All classes are also offered as semi-privates and privates, directly tailored to the goals and needs of the individual.

Architectural Yoga

(Yoga-Asana)

 

Architectural Yoga® has its roots in yoga but is not bound by them:  Sometimes fluid, always informative, students will be taught geometric alignment of the body and the possibilities that arise in ones movement by correcting body mechanics and evolving old movement patterns and introducing new ones. All classes in Architectural Yoga  will be spent on floor work with information gained from yoga, gymnastics, acrobatics, dance, martial arts and weightlifting.  Notebooks are always encouraged.


Architectural Movement

(Movements from: yoga, gymnastics, acrobatics, dance, martial arts and weightlifting)

 

Architectural Movement® uses movements and information gained from yoga, gymnastics, acrobatics, dance, martial arts and weightlifting:  Sometimes fluid, always informative, students will be taught geometric alignment of the body and the possibilities that arise in ones movement by correcting body mechanics and evolving old movement patterns and introducing new ones. All classes in Architectural Yoga  will be spent on floor work with information gained from yoga, gymnastics, acrobatics, dance, martial arts and weightlifting.  Notebooks are always encouraged, this class will be offered only at gyms, parks and boxes that provide space for gymnastic rings, equipment for brachiation and adequate space for more complex locomotion.


Architectural Movement: Building Blocks

(All Levels)

 

Building a foundation through isolating static holds and repetitive work on specific transition to build the student’s awareness of body mechanics. For the Advanced Practitioner and new student alike we will take a deeper look at the subtleties of students bodies and movement patterns. Analyzing alignment and body mechanics. Notebooks are always encouraged. 


Architectural Movement: Constructing Complexity

(Intermediate-Advanced)

 

Allowing foundation to flourish in flow, where students can expect to integrate movements previously mastered as static posture to evolve into more complex work. For the Intermediate to Advanced Practitioner (students with more than a year of a Movement practice: including but not limited to yoga, martial arts, dance, and gymnastics) we will continue looking at the subtleties of students bodies and movement patterns while learning to string new patterns together and enter more fluid ways of locomoting the body. The flow practice will introduce the ideas of meditation in movement and the concept of the flow state.
Notebooks are always encouraged. 


Architectural Movement: Engineering Freedom

(Advanced)

 

Open to advanced practitioners or teachers, where integration gives birth to improvisation.  The stage where a student becomes their own teacher. For students of Movement with multiple years of study, this class will introduce new entries to familiar postures and more complex movements alike. Students can expect to gain understanding in developing their own sequences and style.  This fresh approach will help in developing their own home movement practice while also acquainting them with the concepts of playful practice.


Architectural Movement: Intro to Hand -Balancing

(Intermediate-Advanced)

 

Using techniques from gymnastics and circus arts, this class will help in building the proper foundation for handstands.  We will deal with subjects such as wrist preparation, handstand body-line, shoulder mobility and positioning.  Course work will largely involve static holds, without the requirement of kicking into handstands.  While it is not required, it is recommended that you are able to hold a 30 second straight-arm plank before registering for this class.

 


Architectural Movement: Rehab

(All Levels: Class size is limited to 7 participants)

 

Having overcome severe Rheumatoid Arthritis, Noah brings firsthand knowledge of working through pain, reducing inflammation and preventing injury. In this class we will address the geometric alignment of the body, correcting body mechanics while reintroducing old movement patterns. Most importantly this class will focus on regaining and retaining lost range of motion and methods to help reduce pain in movement.


Architectural Movement: Prehab

(recommended for advanced movers)

 

Having overcome severe Rheumatoid Arthritis, Noah brings firsthand knowledge of working through pain, reducing inflammation and preventing injury. In this class we will address the geometric alignment of the body, correcting body mechanics while carefully accustoming the body to moving out of alignment, building a resiliency throughout the body and helping to prevent injury in the future.
