Sensing the Living is an outdoor movement workshop focused on exploration, that is specially designed to offer you an afternoon of experiencing DEEP CONNECTION to yourself as part of the natural world!

We will connect to ourselves, following our own deep internal impulses, and feeling our bodies come alive with breath and blood as we move our muscles, bones and hearts in new and inspired ways.
We will connect to the natural world, opening our senses to experience and respond to nature’s vast array of sounds, colors, smells, temperatures and textures.
Through curiosity and openess will create new relationships with ourselves, our bodies and the natural world.
And we will connect with each other in joy, fun, compassion, curiosity and playfulness!

The fall is an amazing season, offering us beautiful weather and gorgeous scenery. This season is an opportunity to connect with the splendor of nature that is not-to-be-missed!!

So come out to the woods and spend an afternoon following your own body’s wisdom, soaking in the beautiful fall colors and feeling deeply connected. Take an afternoon out of your busy schedule and make the time to feed yourself!

To Participate
Plan to meet at the Valley Green entrance to the Wissahickon woods at 12:45pm, so we can find each other and get started by 1pm. Wear sturdy footwear, clothes you won’t mind getting dirty and plenty of layers! Also bring water and a snack,
ALL levels and abilities of movers thoroughly welcomed and encouraged to attend!
Please contact me if you need directions, need help finding a ride or have any other questions.

Jenny Roe Sawyer is a choreographer, improviser, teacher and dance artist who has been practicing dance and improvisational movement for over 20 years. She first fell in love with improvisation 15 years ago while a student at Oberlin College and has since studied with many great teachers like Nancy Stark Smith, Chris Aiken, Angie Hauser, KJ Holmes, Kirstie Simpson and the Architects. Recently, she has become enthralled with outdoor site-specific improvisation, choreography and performance. Her latest work UPSTREAM premiered in the water of the Wissahickon Creek in 2012 and was presented at the Morris Arboretum in 2013. Jenny recently had the amazing opportunity to take a Body & Earth workshop with Andrea Olsen and Caryn McHose and this newly inspired her to share the joy she finds in outdoor movement practices through her teaching. This year Jenny is excited to be launching all her outdoor movement and dance endeavors under one name, From The Earth. When in the woods she can often be found improvising with trees.
