* ACRO YOGA : YOGA OF TRUST

- Building community through divine play -

Screen Shot 2018-10-08 at 18.59.28.png

Acro yoga blends the wisdom of yoga, the dynamic power of acrobatics and healing arts. These three lineages form the foundation of a practice that cultivates trust, playfulness and community.

Trust is the currency that we exchange in Acroyoga. With this blanket of trust we become empowered and empower others.

The Solar Acrobatic Practices are the tools to unlock that power in others and ourselves. The solar elements are strength building, inversions with spotting, and partner acrobatics.

* THAI YOGA MASSAGE : A MEDITATION IN MOVEMENT

- Art of practicing Metta, loving kindness -

In essence Thai Yoga Massage can be regarded as a spiritual practice with solid roots in Buddhism.

For both the giver and receiver, Thai Yoga Massage is a sacred dance. The treatment engages a state of meditation where deep stretches inspired by yoga asanas are rhythmically applied along with pressure on sen lines, the energy meridians of the body. Healing occurs in a state of attentiveness, equanimity, compassion and shared happiness, where tensions are released and the free flow of energy resumes.

The numerous benefits include improved posture, joint mobility, circulation, detoxification, toning of the internal organs, a sense of freedom and inner peace.

The teaching is based on the Presence, Touch and Listening, emphasising on Movement and Rhythm. Just as a musican needs melody and rhythm, practitioners learn to find their unique tune in each treatment.

This course incorporates skills in traditional Thai massage with ‘Western’ knowledge of anatomy and physiology.

* SOUL MOTION™ : CONSCIOUS DANCE PRACTICE

- Freedom through movement and expression -

Soul Motion™ is a practice of paying attention and waking up, together, to the physical reality of a body in motion, and the spiritual reality of the Presence that moves us. It’s a dance at the crossroads of the vertical drop into self and the horizontal extension toward another, down from the mind’s conversations of past and future into the raw, messy & miraculous event of this body sweating, tensing, opening, living and dying: now. Supported by a wide range of movement scores –from mindful to wild– students dance across the four landscapes of Soul Motion™: solo, duet, community, and prayer space, leaping off of three core platforms: Pause Presence, a meditative relaxation practice that allows the dancer to slow down, align, and recharge; Orbit Orientation, where the dancer is encouraged to consciously move in all directions

with equal attention and without preference; Echo Inspiration, using each other’s movements to inform and inspire. In the exploration of relationships between energy, motion, and space, stillness and movement are both included, as well as eclectic music sequences from classical to experimental to the Great Sound of silence.

Soul Motion tm:

Practica de Danza Consciente

  • Libertad a traves del Movimiento y expresion -

 

Soul Motion tm es una practica de prestar atencion y despertar, juntos, a la realidad espiritual de la Presencia que nos mueve. Es una danza que yace en el cruce entre la caida vertical de uno mismo y la extension horizontal hacia los demas, desde las conversaciones de la mente sobre el pasado y futuro hacia el crudo, desordenado y milagroso evento del cuerpo transpirado, tensado, abierto, viviendo y muriendo: el ahora.

 

Apoyado por un variado rango de puntos alrededor del movimiento - desde lo consciente hasta lo salvaje - estudiantes de la danza a lo largo de los 4 entornos del Soul Motion tm: solo, duos, comunidad y espacio de rezo, saltado sus tres plataformas: Pausa Presencia, una practica de relajacion meditativa que permite al danzante bajar las revoluciones, alinear y recargas; Orbit Orientacion, donde se alienta al bailarin a moverse conscientemente en todas las direcciones con igual atencion sin preferencia; Eco Inspiracion, movimiento inspirado en los demas para interactuar. En esta exploracion de relaciones entre energia y espacio, el movimiento y la quietud se incluyen, asi como secuencias musicales desde lo clasico a lo experimental via el Gran Sonido del Silencio.
