Making Friends With The Floor

  • Lotus Wellness 1813 5th Avenue Troy, NY 12180 United States (map)



Join us for day full of floor fun! In this 1-day Awareness Through Movement® immersion we’ll get to know the ground.

Making friends with the floor. When you get to know the floor, you start to realize that it’s always there to greet you. In fact, the ground responds to your every action in it’s own way. A way known as the “Ground Reaction Force.”

What is Ground Reaction Force? Newton’s 3rd Law of Motion states that “For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.” According to that, when we walk or run, every time our foot lands, there is what is called a ‘Ground Reaction Force’ produced. In this intensive, we’ll explore a variety of lessons designed to help you soften and meet the ground with grace. More than that, you’ll discover how the ground reaction force acts as a ‘mirror’ and provides you with feedback so that you can adjust what we do. . And you’ll discover how to use this new information and reciprocal force to improve all that you do.

Space is limited to eight and registration is required.
