1 April Monday|18:30 - 20:30 |100 TL
No previous experience is required.
Minimum 4, maximum 12 persons.
It is important for participants to attend all 6 classes, as we will build new content for each class.
In this workshop, we will work with the attention on movement in the body in combination with different techniques and disciplines such as contemporary dance, yoga, qigong, and meditation. We will be researching how to have better communication with our body.
In addition to working with techniques movement, phrases will be fragmented in order to allow the free movement while being in the flow. By softly approaching our body we will be investigating how the movement starts in the body and what its relation is with emotions.
With the support of the free movement, we will experience being out of our memorised areas in terms of mind and body. The use of different disciplines aims to encourage participants to enhance their own practices.
