These are past class series and workshop descriptions, sometimes with links to the recorded lessons. It may be a useful way for you to organize how you use the recordings on your site, or you may like to use them to think about how you construct series as a teacher.

Past series with recordings:

Apr – May 2014

Jan – Feb 2014 was a curious string of Wednesday snowstorms and failed recordings. So there is nothing permanent to show for it!

September-October 2013 Series

I’m still thinking about knees, though you may or may not notice it when you do these lessons.

I’m thinking about knees, and Theo Jansen’s strandbeest:

Compilation from Strandbeest on Vimeo.

  1. Somewhere in your back… (AY 434: Twisting and opposing gently)
  2. Frog’s Legs (AY 117)
  3. Recording malfunction! But you can do a similar lesson here: Hip and shoulder circles
  4. Turning the head around its circumference and in the center (AY 6)
  5. Getting to know the hip joints (AY 241)
  6. Sidelying, sliding hands and knees at different angles (no particular source)

January – February 2013 Series

By the end, your head will know where your pelvis is, and your pelvis will know where your head is. Maybe you’ll use your spine differently to help lift your legs, and maybe your head will float with the greatest of ease on top of it all. And what effect will that have on the agility with which you manage the challenges of your life?

  1. Dead Bird
  2. Protrusions and bendings
  3. Extensors with a twist 
  4. On the side – head and pelvis
  5. Head and Pelvis
  6. What I taught was AY 539, Fresh Standing, but I’m not happy with the recording!

*No reimbursement for missed classes, except in case of weather cancellation and in cases where that’s unreasonable. (Say you break your leg after two weeks. Then you can come to the next series for free, or you can give it to a friend. That kind of thing. Say over the four weeks you miss a class because of this and that. No reimbursement for that–but classes are relatively cheap, so you probably won’t mind. That’s the idea.)
