Skinner Releasing Intensive - Polly Hudson

3rd-7th August 2016

Price: £300-£360

Skinner Releasing Technique is a pioneering approach to dance and creative process that has evolved from the simple principle that when we are releasing physical tension, we can move with greater freedom, power and articulation.

As we are letting go of our habitual holding patterns, we are supported to cultivate an increasing sensitivity to our own physical and imaginative experience.

The result can be a deeply embodied awareness of new possibilities in how we move, and of our being - both inside the studio, and in our daily life. Unfolding of our own individual Process occurs.

For further information-

In this retreat at Felinganol we will take seven classes in the introductory series. The beauty of the setting will allow us to fully drop into our Process.

We will play with guided poetic imagery, with movement studies supported by music and sound, and with hands on in pairs. We will also be writing/drawing at the end of class.

Polly Hudson is a dancer, artist and teacher who makes performance and film works. Skinner Releasing Technique has defined Polly’s practice as a teacher, as an artist, and in living since she first encountered it in 1994.

'Polly is a generous, patient and deeply aware teacher. She has the beautiful quality of putting the learning interests and needs of her students at the heart of her delivery, bringing the right combination of trusting to go beyond your limits and honouring with gracious acceptance, that to work from where you are is good enough. It is always a pleasure to be in the presence of her teaching​​.'

Kerstin Wellhofer

Polly is a dedicated and compassionate teacher. As a performing artist she is constantly inquiring and this makes her teaching rich, personal and alive.'

Miranda Tufnell​

The technique has been carefully arranged into a comprehensive, progressive pedagogy. Uniquely, in Releasing classes, experienced dancers study alongside beginners, each engaged in their own individual process. SRT is for all those interested in exploring embodiment, expression, creativity and awareness through moving; everyone is welcome.
