Resilience through resistance
This workshop develops the concept of building resilience through the use of resistance.
To be resilient is to have plasticity, to be able to absorb force, to be mentally and physically pliable, yet strong. Resilience is a reaction to resistance.
To resist injury, to develop tendons, ligaments and joints that can withstand tension and stress, to create a body that becomes strong through meaningful movement, are all components of resilience. The human body must be able to cope with unpredictability, the unknown, the unexpected.
The Resilience through Resistance workshop introduces these concepts. We implement individual and partner work using the elements of unpredictability with the use of basic tools that require you to develop responses to situations, to find solutions. Whether that's working alongside or in opposition to your partner or on your own, you will learn how to find responses to physical riddles.
Developing the understanding of how to maintain stability alongside movement, and in the process, develop coordination, flexibility and strength in unpredictable situations. Stability, strength and flexibility all must be adaptable, responsive and malleable to any given situation.
