I felt like the movement practices were very relevant to our class discussions of “being present” and how the body operates or is ignored in the classroom. It was a good exploration of feeling the movement of the body and my own relation to the space and others around me and went with our readings of meditation nicely. However, I did feel like when we were trying to piece together movement sequences in groups based on the readings, it ended up being a little superficial and mime-like which did not add a lot to my understandings of the readings or the course. The partner-mirroring exercise felt more interesting and meaningful to me, for example.
