About LightBodies

Lightbodies is about a deeper movement experience.  It is about embodying our relationship with space,  that is, the world around us, and how we create a sense of time through how we choose to move.  In exploring, we push our perceptual boundaries of what is real, and thus, expand our sense of living — we evolve.

This is not about wearing cute outfits, or a flexibility contest, or the corporatization and dogmatization of movement practices for personal gain.

Lightbodies is about the expression of our embodied experience in the world, and the sense that how we choose to move creates our subjective sense of time.  Through the play of embodied perceptual expression, we evolve, as human beings.  This is my hope and it is what I love.
