In SRT we cultivate letting go of unnecessary holding in our physical selves; letting go of stress, preconceptions and fears of awkwardness to rediscover our natural grace, alignment, flexibility and imagination. SRT integrates technique with creative process through guided imagery, music and hands-on partner studies. The class atmosphere is gentle and safe allowing the individual to proceed at their own pace, in their own way. As well as enhancing strength, suppleness, efficiency, availability, and freedom, SRT catalyzes one's own process, whatever that may be. It is an experiential, intuitive approach and utilizes imagery as a powerful tool for transformation.
