Sorry, you missed this event, SIGN UP to get information on our forthcoming shows

Tue 5 December, 1 - 4pm

Breathing can be a conscious as well as an unconscious activity. Awareness of breath lies at the heart of somatic practice, it often tells us more about our habits in movement and thought than most other actions. Join Susanne Lahusen to look at the anatomy of breath, its essential qualities in movement and stillness, the importance of the pause between inhale and exhale, and the relevance of finding breathing patterns that serve and enrich us.

Teacher's Biography

Susanne Lahusen’s interest in somatics started when she helped to set up a collection on the early 20th century Central European Dance, and started to explore the roots that led to the various somatic practices of today. She has a BEd in Movement Studies and Sports Science, an MA in Dance, and certification in Yoga, Pilates, Gyrotonic, and the Alexander Technique. She currently teaches somatics at London Contemporary Dance School, trains yoga teachers for Yogacampus, she runs experiential anatomy and yoga sequencing courses, and also works as a private movement practitioner. Whilst respecting the unique characteristics of the various disciplines which she has studied, Susanne’s approach to teaching has evolved from an awareness of the elements that are fundamental to all movement.
