Amenti Movemeant is a method created by Gil The Grid, which spreads awareness about the connection of the body, mind and soul and gives tools on expanding the capabilities of self-expression.
The combination of these different elements result into a movement method where the relationship between the body and mover will be enhanced. Be it to improve movement qualities, or to heal oneself from mental or physical blockages. It can be a confronting method from time to time, revealing your personal strengths and also fears at the same time. By learning how to be aware of these polarities, one can heal itself and change as a person as well.
Within this method we work with layers, layers that all reflect upon the human experience. Every person has a natural layer of movement and the correlation of these layers reflect upon the persona's being as well, Within this method we focus on challenging our students in a demanding yet healing way to overcome personal boundaries and to explore and stimulate everyone's individual way of moving.
Learning how to become more aware of the self and connecting towards other people through movement. Linking the soul aspect with the mind and body.

CLASS 1 ๑ INTRODUCTION

In this class we will explain the Amenti Movemeant Method, who we are and what we want to achieve with our teachings. An introduction class where we will briefly touch upon every aspect we will cover during the upcoming classes. The focus of this class is to create a safe environment where you can feel comfortable enough to connect socially and let go of for example shame or any anxieties.
CLASS 2 ๑ NATURAL LAYERS
Date: Sunday the 18th of February from 13:00-14:30
The layers of air and earth are the main focus of this class.
A physically demanding one where we will dive into the many different aspects and qualities which connect to these layers. The exercises will have a strong emphasis on trust and fear which simulate our natural sense for survival. Partnering will thus also be an important part of this class. In the layer of air we will also work with a partner in the sense of surrendering and steering or guiding your own or someone else's energy.

Water which is a little less physical where we will focus more on our feelings and emotions and how to connect to these throughout movement. To dive deeply into ourselves and identify these feelings and translate them to and eventually with our bodies. Fire is the symbol of transformation and willpower. We will challenge the students to step out of their comfort zone and to continue where things get difficult. Emphasis on powerful movement from the core and manipulation from and with the hands.
