This series with Kate Potter explores four different choreographed sequences titled Perseverance, Reverence, Exuberance, and Innocence – the 4 Gates. Each sequence, or Gate, in this series lends itself to movement which cues the brain, and reminds us of our deeper essence.
This signature style of Kate Potter is to build phrases of postures, by repeating the transitions and adding on new postures until a sequence is complete. Emphasis is on building patterns of movement with breath leading the way. By building and repeating the sequences, you build muscle memory and can bring more focus to your breath, rather than becoming too focused on the movement. These practices are designed in a way that you can come back to them over and over, and each time experiencing something new as your body moves focus.
Kate’s style lends itself to all body types, with a unique way of coming back to center, Kate refers to this as breath body linking. The breath body link is when you move in tandem with an easy expression that ties us all together like a chorus to a song. Kate brings you back to ‘home base’ in between repetition of the sequence, which allows you to regain focus and bring your attention back to your intention.
Enjoy this special series and experience how these sequences designed for opening different areas of the body can help you find the rhythm of breath and body in order to pass through those 4 Gates.
