CLASSES and WORKSHOPS:

13. 8 weeks Subbody Butoh Workshop with Kats D

Subbody Butoh Method was developed by Rhizome Lee, a Japanese Butoh practitioner. “Subbody” means subconscious body. In the subconscious realm, away from the boundary of ego and daily consciousness, our mind and body melt into oneness and create world that is completely different from daily world. Though various conditioning techniques, a Subbody Butoh practitioner creates movements through exploring the subconscious realm. For more information about Subbody Butoh Method, please go to: www.subbody.net

This workshop will focus on the essential aspects of Subbody Butoh:
· Quiet down the daily consciousness and listen to the subtle body signals.
· Go beyond our physical, psychological and social bounds in order to create movements that are novel and unique to the individual body.
· Develop Subbody movements through opening eight channels (body feeling, movement, visual, audio, emotion, relationship, world-self image and thinking).
· Explore movements through Hidden Body (Hidden Skin, Hidden Muscle, Hidden Joints, etc)
· Through the resonance with other Subbodies, become Co-body.

This workshop requires no dance experience. Anyone who would like to explore his or her hidden creative potentials is welcome!

When: Thursday 6:00-9:00pm January 5, 12, 19 February 2, 9, 16, 23 March 1
Where: Fallout Urban Art Center Studio Three, 2601 2nd Avenue South, Minneapolis
Tuition: $200 ($180 when you register by December 15th)

To register, please write a check payable to Kats D Fukasawa and mail to 5015 14th Avenue South, Minneapolis Minnesota 55417. Full payment required to register.

Kats D (Workshop Instructor) has been studying Subbody Butoh under the guidance of Rhizome Lee since 2005. He has also studied with other Butoh masters, such as Katsura Kan, Akira Kasai and Kim Itoh.

19. Yoga Workshops with Non Edwards during Zenon Dance School's Winter Break

Introduction to Vinyasa Yoga, Mon and Wed, Dec 19 & 21, 6:00-7:00pm Vinyasa has many accepted meanings in yoga today, however, his class will focus on linking breath with movement, and linking postures to one another. An introductory "flow" class, we will learn about the proper technique and alignment for poses at the beginning of class, and then practice sequences that flow between these poses and utilize our breath.

Ashtanga Primary Series, Mon, Tues, and Wed, Dec 19, 20, & 21, 9:30-11am
The Ashtanga Primary Series is a set sequence of poses designed by Tirumalai Krishnamacharya and popularized by K. Pattabhi Jois. This is a rigorous, disciplined vinyasa class that starts with a standing sequence, moves onto to a series of seated poses, and then closes with reclining poses and inversions. We will likely not be able to cover the entire series in any one class, but each class will focus on a different section of the series while touching on each of the others as well. This is an intermediate/advanced class that may be difficult for a beginning yogi. You may want to bring a hand towel for sweat!

Non Edwards has been practicing Ashtanga yoga since 2005 and is currently studying with the Yoga Center of Minneapolis' Teacher Training Program. Zenon Dance School class rates apply.
