Class : Movement for the Camera    

  • Instagram のアイコン

Express yourself freely!

 

You will learn how to connect your mind and body. Train your senses and use imagery to improve your body coordination. Through this training, you will find natural face and body expressions.

 

My 10 years of experience as an aerial performer for Cirque du Soleil has helped me develop a unique eye for movement and body positioning.

 

More recently, I have been studying mindfulness. It is a part of my lifestyle. I see how energy flows in the body, as well as the way we as human beings connect to nature.

 

I've found that we are all unique.  When we are able to connect inwardly on a deep level, it allows us to express ourselves as we truly are, which ultimately brings out the best version of us.

 

Be truly who you are and bring your beauty and confidence in front of the Camera!

Instructor : Mai Sato

I am a photographer based in Los Angeles and Las Vegas.

 

Before my professional career in photography, I worked for Cirque du Soleil for 10 years, performing as an aerial acrobat.  Previously, I worked in 3DCG design in Tokyo. This blend of performance and design has given me a unique perspective on my work as a photographer.

​More recently, I have been studying mindfulness. It is a part of my lifestyle. I see how energy flows in the body, as well as the way we as human beings connect to nature.

Mindful Movement is my original method to improve artistic skills and expressing your authentic self. You will learn how to connect your body, mind, and energy. Train your senses and use imagery to improve your body coordination, develop creativity, and bring back your natural health and balance.

I've found that we are all unique. When we are able to connect inwardly on a deep level, it allows us to express ourselves as we truly are, which ultimately brings out the best version of us.

I would love to help support you in reaching your goals!

​Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have. I'm looking forward to working with you!
