Surjit focused on locating the precise beginning of an action. How do ‘actions’ respond to each other in building a sequence? Surjit’s classes took this sequence apart and traced the beginnings of an action through exercises in isolation that required the mind to focus on a specific part of the body and modulate the intensity of the action.
Later on, it will explore to other dimension of movement focusing on the different part of the body.
