Master Your Movement with Rie Katagiri 


Creative Force of Nature, creator of The Technique , writer, director, producer, Joan Scheckel  joins forces with her own Master Teacher, Rie Katagiri (movement coach for Marisa Tomei in The Wrestler, Juno Temple in Afternoon Delight), to create a movement program for Artists. Using yoga, qi gong, intuitive movement and ball therapy, Rie’s work reinforces your ability to be fully present and authentically connected to your body. This movement study works in tandem with The Technique to explore how the body is intrinsic to self expression.


Please bring a yoga mat, yoga tune up balls if you have them and drinking water.
