inkBoat trainings provide awareness practices to hone internal sensibilities and physical expression, stemming from improvisational training (Action Theater™) and Japanese performing arts (Body Weather Training, Noh Theater, Butoh Dance). We refine the body and mind utilizing Daoist Internal Arts (Yang Sheng Gong, Dao Yin, Qi Gong, Nei Gong), as well as MovNat® and Noguchi Taiso.
Focus on the body, it’s connectivity, strength and integrity.
Allow the mind access to the connective tissues, release the tension that constricts the breath.
Dance with the unknown.
Our ON DEMAND (pre-recorded) lessons are available to support your practice at home, focused on building a consistent and lasting physical practice to serve you in life, developing greater mobility, flexibility, circulation, alignment and strength.
