Morning classes 2 hours
Every morning we will start with a class developed from the practice of different martial arts, Qi Gung, Taijiquan and Dance techniques, including some therapeutic ones like Body Mind Centering, Yoga, 5 Rhythms and Klein Technique.
After the warm up the space opens to some improvisation series made to stimulate awareness and creativity and a movement phrase will help to integrate and embody the new informations. We will end our practice with a soft stretching to rebalance the heart rates and the body-mind connection.

Afternoon classes 2 hours
In the afternoon I would like to focus on some basic aspects of improvisation and composition practice. We embrace subjects as time, space, dynamics, forms, voice work and stage presence, learning to deeply perceive our authentic bodies. We discover the silences, the spaces in between, connecting to our creative energy.
The morning class aims to help us to connect to our seed centre and align our central axis to gravity. Through a more efficient use of the body functions, it´s weight and possibilities – we will discover our natural alignment, we will learn how to direct forces, how to use momentum, avoiding unnecessary strain in the joints and muscles. In the afternoon we will play and develop material, exploring different composition tools, experiencing solo work and group dynamics.
Through this work I would like to help to improve body and space awareness, intuition and all what each one of the participant is there for. We tune in the present moment, liberating our authentic expression and communication.
