Holistic & Honing


Amelia Chan   One word that got thrown around a lot in the early 2000’s was “holistic”. The official definition of “holistic” is “characterized by the belief that the parts of something are interconnected and can be explained only by reference to the whole.” The trend was very much about doing things that were supposed […]

Stamina & “Strengthening”


Amelia Chan   This video is a clip from a recital a few days ago. Our program was short, but both pieces on there were big ones. Both the Brahms D minor Sonata and the Scherzo require an almost continuous sense of mass and gravity from the tiny violin, even in moments of relative lightness. […]

Learning & Play: You Have to Want It


Dare Carrasquillo   “But because we do not have real robust diverse communities of care, with diverse multicultural behaviors of coherence, we are instead siloed into capitalist bubbles of individuals, each person burdened with the weight of a thousand inaccurate concepts.”   I’ve said a lot of things. I’ll likely say more. I never believed […]

Risky Play


Gokce S Hall  (Sevinc Gökçe)   Risky games and discoveries called Risky Play are important in terms of understanding and judgment of the child’s body capacity and what is really dangerous. Plus of course he develops fine motor skills and self confidence. . There are a few things you can do as a parent: stand […]

Openness & Movement


Jenn Pilotti   The coach who writes my programs recently included handstand play on one of my hand balancing days. “Set a timer for ten minutes. Play with different entries to handstands. Try and catch the balance for 3 seconds. Note which variations feel interesting.” This particular aspect of my movement practice made my Tuesday. […]

Elderly ‘Exercise’

Screenshot 20180521 072911 (1)

Michael Ryan Recorded conversation with my teacher, Jozef Frucek. Dated December 10th 2016. There’s no denying what Jozef is saying, but rarely would anyone articulate these thoughts. It’s a brutal truth, that we will all grow old and die. So much so that we often trick ourselves into thinking that it will never be us. […]

Play and Exposure to Failure


Jenn Pilotti   A curious thing has happened across gyms and fitness centers across the US- people are worried about doing things right. “What is the right way to pick something up from the ground so I don’t hurt my back?” I get asked. “What is the right way to stand/sit/move around?” people inquire, worried […]

Disassociation Play

In this particular movement challenge, I am maintaining Pelvic stability, while expressing Thoracic mobility. Creating the stability to stop that little ball from moving, lit up all aspects of my core, pelvic floor, intrinsic foot musculature, ERRYBODY came to the […]

Rediscovering Play


Give a kid a list of tasks to do, and you’ll find yourself with one unhappy kid. Give an adult a checklist, and they transform into blissful busyness. One basks in all they have achieved, and the other laments all the other potential possibilities lost. A child isn’t ruled by numbers or fear of being […]
