Workshops from around the World
I’m an Australian wheelchair tennis champion. I competed in two Paralympics—London and Rio—and was ranked #8 in the world. At age 13, I began a three-year battle with cancer. The only way to save my life was to remove the right half of my pelvis. I was in a wheelchair for many years, but secretly always wondered if I’d be able to walk long distances again. Through this incredible movement practice, not only did I walk again, but I put my wheelchair away and went on to hike one of the hardest treks in the world, the Kokoda Track. In addition to giving me back my mobility, the practices healed the chronic pain I lived with for 15 years. There's nothing I love more than practicing on the beach.
AMC Note: The video (linked above) is an entire class. He is personable and was broadcasting to a Zoom audience as well as through YouTube (which doesn't require participation). Would be a nice addition for OCRA?? Would need to work out time zone, but also nice to offer some activities in other time zones.
Explore creativity from the inside out on 2020's most booked experience! No art experience necessary. No drawing skills required! This is not a technical drawing exercise but an exercise in enlivening the imagination & accessing the creative capacity of body & mind.
AMC Note: Make your own Espadrilles (arrange to have teal colors). Nice way to bond and would be able to have teal shoes made for you to remind you of the experience and also make you feel that you are traveling.
