CounterPULSE is holding weekly donation-based Hatha yoga classes every Friday from 4:30-5:30pm as part of our CounterPULSE Underground programming. Led by Erin McElroy (RYT), classes will be multi-level, and will incorporate anti-oppression frameworks. Based on principles of non-violence, presence, and mindfulness, we’ll warm up your bodies, hearts, and minds, and all that energy that lives in between!

Inside/Out: Framing Contact 
with Krista DeNio
In this Contact Improvisation centered class, we will investigate the internal and external frames: from the musculoskeletal framework of the body (external), to the compositional framework of the mind’s eye (internal), to the spatial/compositional choice-making (internal meets external).  Drawing on the Viewpoints (vocabulary of time & space), and fundamental C.I. skills and points of view, we will explore the engagement of internal and external landscapes  and the territory in between.

The Contact Improvisation Class and Jam takes place EVERY TUESDAY year-round at CounterPULSE. The class is sequential, but drop-ins are encouraged. The best learning experience comes from trying out the styles of at least 3 of our monthly teachers. CI deepens your flexibility, kinesthetic awareness, and choices for contemporary partnering. Explore the discipline and play of this dance form with both class study and jam practice. The jam is a no-music (quiet) jam. We recommend taking class before attending your first jam.
