[*] Embodied Paradox  [new class in development]

‘Embodied Paradox’ is a mystery  [….]

[*] Skirmish  [new class in development]

‘Skirmish’ is a new type of class within Physical Alchemy that I have been casually contemplating and designing for a few years now, that I hope to soon run prototypes of. 

The ideas I am playing with is sticking together elements such as: the basic elements of parkour with proper connective tissue and motor pattern preparation, kettlebell strength and conditioning work, vestibular repatterning and balance work, stick fighting drills, climbing, physical games, work on moving stealthily, training in projectiles [slinging, archery/bows, throwing], some basic drilling from wrestling and the fighting arts, the crafting of equipment related to the class, and the development of observational and body awareness skill-sets individually and inter-personally. 


The classes will be run outside in the beautiful landscape of Sydneytown.  These will follow the long class format, with duration beginning at ~2hrs and likely going up from there when the working syllabus starts to evolve. 

[*]  Repatterning Stretching Classes


Bending the body into unconventional shapes for fun and pleasure.  Stretching opens up new sensations and movement options.  It also remedies many of the patterns associated with biological aging – and that is a good thing. 

Repatterning Stretching classes utilize: partner stretching, solo stretching, limbering, relaxation and body awareness exercises to increase the suppleness and flexibility of the physical body. 

Differing slightly from some stretching classes this work simultaneously focuses upon increasing range of motion, remapping forgotten areas of the body and increasing the quality of sensory impressions from these new area – with a preference towards the sensory impression quality over range increase alone.

These classes are open to all.

[*] Alchemical Stretching Classes

‘Alchemical Stretching’ classes are invitation-only experimental sessions for students with the requisite training experience, embodiment and qualities.  They use a completely different and unique metaphysics as ‘web of knowledge’ underneath the practical component that facilitates the processes involved in rare transmutations. 

It encompasses all the material from the old  ‘Alchemical Stretching’ class syllabus and adds in many new elements.
