STRENGTH & ALIGNMENT class
Bjerregaard has been training dancers for years, and has realized that professionals and non-professionals run into the same obstacles due to dysfunctional strength and unhealthy body alignment. Developing your core strength is like giving yourself a body makeover: it goes beyond the surface muscles and asks a balanced development of the deep internal ones that stabilize, align and stretch the body. Simple exercises, inspired from Contemporary Dance techniques, Pilates and Yoga, will release the tension that the body retains and allow a smooth functioning of all the joints for a healthy, pain-free posture and for increased stability in motion.
