We focus on Contact Improvisation as a spiritual
experience including inner energies and emotions.
You will get sensitive and feel the subtle sensations, emotions and
energies in your body as well as our physical bodies in dancing a solo,
a duo or dancing in a group! Extensive CI dance in the space and rather
acrobatic elements of CI alternate with sensing the inner stream and
energies in the body.
Breathing exercises (from Swami Satyananda Saraswati) will bring awareness
to the chakras and will activate them.
You will dance and meet each other from anahata (heart) chakra, from
manipura (navel ) chakra as well as from the space of the pelvis. You
will experience your intuitive as well as spiritual potentials and abilities
by activating ajna chakra und the pineal gland.
You will be introduced to the principles of Kashmiri tantric massage,
which is a intimate and very intense tantric massage. Direct out of
the massage we will find into a dance. Tantric breath and energy circles
will be practised.
Our studio at Saint Jean du Doigt is on the sea. We will also meditate
and dance on the shore. The place where we sleep is in a walking distance
of 30 minures to the studio or 5 mintes with the car.
We will be practising in a mixed gender
Sabine's teaching in english will be translated in french.
