The course titled Animalis is a part of the education programme of the Marija Scekic’s School of Natural Movement, based in Zadar. The workshop/course is designed as a combination of isometric exercises aimed at strengthening of deep muscles in the body with elements of slow-motion movements and “animal flow” exercises for mobility, flexibility, strength, stamina and neuromuscular communication. The exercises are done mostly on the floor “in a partnership with nature”, with the focal point of such exercises being arms, shoulders, the arm joints, thighs and the centre of the body. Teaching the floating form of movement that implies exercises that emulate the primitive and innate animal movement.
The goal of the workshop is learning the notions of interconnection and transformation of the participants’ body movement and awareness when performing natural dance sequences.
Marija Šćekić has taught the isometric part of the exercises of the ANIMALIS programme in the Republic of Croatia since 2009, when she designed a special set of stretching, mobility and flexibility exercises as well as the exercises for strengthening of the body as prevention of the dance injuries.
