We are excited to welcome you to our Movement Atelier, a space dedicated to the exploration of different forms of Movement and Connection! A day dedicated to your Body and to what you can access beyond your Body by simply moving it!
A day for discovering the power of Connection with your Body and with other moving Bodies, in a communal and playful space of trust and respect.
We will have an interdisciplinary approach to movement in which, three disciplines that use the Body will come together with the aim of going beyond the physical layers and enter a realm of harmony, trust and union through mindful movement.
AcroYoga will be the starting ground, after stretching with a few Asanas, Salva will guide you into the art of moving in partners to create beautiful and aesthetic poses and flows that would not be accessible to the single practitioner, you need to work together and it is from this working together that the magic arises!
We will then move to InterConnected Dance, where Alicia will guide the group into a safe space for co-creating a shared and interconnected dance. In this dance we will use techniques based on Contact Improvisation and Authentic Movement to allow the group to connect and consequently flow into their individual innate movement that emerge from the impulses of the ever changing present moment. You will learn to let go, trust yourself and others, and allow your playful self to rise. The group will enter a deep flow of dancing and listening to what is happening both at physical and emotional level, within you and within your partner. Being present and deep listening of the body language are key for a harmonious, playful and safe interconnected dance to happen.
The perfect closure to take care of your body after it has moved in so many different patterns is of course Thai Yoga Massage. In this part, Paulina will guide you through a simple Body work inspired by Thai Yoga massage. The goal is to bring the awaken and still vibrating energy, from the prior sessions, back to a balanced state. We will direct our awareness inwards, and at the same time sharing our healing power to help others to restore and settle. The meditative movement and connection between the giver and receiver will enter a very subtle and intimate space where words do not matter anymore, and all you need is to carefully listen the unspoken needs of your massage partner.
