Event description
Let's deepen awareness of ourselves and our bodies, through gentle movement, let's make connections and have fun!

About this Event

Let’s give ourselves time to get to know ourselves better. Through constructive rest, dance improvisation and releasing practices we are going to explore connections in our bodies, connections between sensation and information, connections between body and mind. Trust, follow intuition, impulses and needs. Integrate every aspect of human being. Invite everything that comes.

Let’s feed the body with gentle movement to make space in our spine, joints, tissues and muscles. Fill the body with oxygen with breathing and sound practice. Energize and heat up with minimum muscle tension.

After solo practice we are going to reflect ourselves in others, let them lead, follow or just witness our journey. Together we will create space for self expression, curiosity, deep relaxation, for letting go without judgment or expectations.

By conscious movement we boost our life energy. We are able to connect deeper with our body, rediscover ourselves anew, be more attentive, healthier, heart energetics increases as well as emotional stability. Whole process improves intelligence, memory and creative thinking.

I’d like to invite everyone, who is curious and wants to enhance psychophysical abilities, learn how to relax, deepen awareness of the body and develop individual movement expression. For dancers, actors, performers and those who work with bodies it is a brand new look at what they do and an invitation to unconventional approach and to develop movement language. For beginners it is a way to acquaint with their bodies and spirit, practice active rest and through a natural movement get closer to themselves.
