Kinetic Awareness® allows you to understand your own body-mind in movement, from your minimum to maximum, at any time. In this intensive we will explore the possiblites of the spine: How can even one vertebra make a difference? What about the various innervations of the neck and lower back? In the afternoon, we will explore more movement possibilities from the spine and add the sensation of how our inner organs structurally support its various movement possibilities ...

Thomas' intensives really do facilitate a deepening of this profound self sensing capacity, that everyone possesses, whether or not they are aware of it yet. I would strongly recommend them to anyone who is interested in deepening their body-mind connection, and importantly, in acquiring tools and methods that will allow them to continue to do so.

I think it needs a whole day abling exploring the morning session.
