Workshop with Susan Klein
Klein Technique™

in collaboration with Fabio Tavares

Estúdios Victor Córdon, Lisbon | Portugal
26 to 30 of September 2022 | 12h00 – 17h00

“In this very special 5-hour workshop in Klein Technique™, Susan Klein (USA) and Fabio Tavares (USA/Brazil) will co-teach this workshop focusing on both the theory and practice of Klein Technique™. Susan will start each day with some movement and then focus on a unique theoretical principle of Klein Technique™ each day. After a break, Fabio will teach a full Stretch and Placement Class. During the classes there will be plenty of time for questions and individual attention.


This workshop will emphasize the pivotal principle of Klein Technique™, the concept of moving from our deepest structural and energetic tissue, the bone, the connections at the level of the bones and how the body coordinates to improve movement and reduce and heal injuries.


Through an interweaving of theory and practice we will work on the muscles of deep postural support: the psoas, the hamstrings, the pelvic floor muscles, and the external rotators. We will work with a body-felt understanding of how these muscles bring the bones into alignment, a place of connectedness, which leads to true power and efficiency of movement. Klein Technique™ is a process-oriented practice of great value to people of all proficiency levels, dancers, and non-dancers alike. Our goal is to teach movement from the individual perspective of internal knowing and understanding. Students of all levels of practice in Klein Technique™ will gain insight into their movement patterns and habits and gain a greater internal understanding of their bodies.


All are welcome. Come! Breathe, Stretch, and Connect with us!!”
