A master must not be missed

Programa m.a.p. - Jeremy Nelson - un maestro que no te puedes perder

Jeremy Nelson classes are marked by over 25 years of continuous study of the work of Barbara Mahler and Susan Klein, and in recent years also by Alexander Technique® studies, and Bodymind Centering® Feldenkreis Method.

The class focuses on the integration of the research and work in alignment movement. It will focus primarily on working around the skeletal structure and its connections, allowing more mobility and lightness superficial muscles and more efficient use of land. The intention is that every student can experiment and develop this body awareness in your body and recognize their individuality. We will incorporate a variety of approaches including hands-on work in partners that help deepen our awareness and give us the opportunity to really experience some of these ideas in a physical way. We will then take our work into simple activities and movements, improvisation and improvisational scores, and feed it also into some simple set phrase work.
