We get it.
Balancing all the plates you are spinning right now is stressful.
Living up to the expectations of you is hard work.
Shifting between the multiple roles you play daily is exhausting.
Do you ever wonder, 'When do I ever get time to just be me?''
If so, you are not alone.
Sometimes we simply need to pause so that we can realign with our core, our inner being, and feel better connected to the bodies we inhabit.
Levy Little Theatre's CORE:WOMEN workshops will give you the pause you deserve whilst opening up new ways of connecting with yourself.
"Pay attention to the timeless core of your being."
WHAT ARE CORE:WOMEN WORKSHOPS?
CORE:Women workshops aim to improve core strength both emotionally and physically by using professional acting techniques and exercises.
By connecting more deeply with your core you can;
gain confidence in who you are as a truly unique person,
respect yourself more and appreciate your strength and accomplishments,
improve relationships with friends and family by being more grounded and true to yourself,
build your physical core, helping with posture, poise, presence and well-being,
feel more in control of your own body and more connected to the body you inhabit,
explore the many roles you play in life; how you change and adapt to given circumstances
help you explore living authentically in your day-to-day life.
HOW DO WE DO THAT?
We use acting techniques such as,
physicality and character work,
vocal projection, resonance and articulation
the importance of eye contact,
your presence and power in a space,
your natural energies and rhythms and the messages they send out to others,
how our environment and other peoples' energies affect us.
Workshops by experts from other disciplines are woven into the sessions to help you to connect with your physical core more affectively. These disciplines include,
"Be yourself, not an imitation of what you think you should be."
