Profitraining mit Mu-Yi Kuo

Profitraining with Mu-Yi Kuo

The aim of this class is to discover unconscious movement
which results naturally from conscious movement. By
becoming aware of unconscious movement one can more
clearly channel the energy required to accomplish a given
task, leading to movement efficiency. When faced with a
technical challenge oftentimes far too much energy is
expended in trying to overcome the challenge. By pinpointing
the areas where effort is required (conscious
movement) and examining what results naturally from this
effort (unconscious movement) energy can be focused and
conserved. Through a series of practical combinations and
exercises, such paradoxical questions as "how to go down to
come up" or "how to move forward by dropping motion” will
be addressed. Very often a movement need not always be
created but rather simply "discovered”.
