Contact Yoga & AcroYoga

Atividade: Workshop

Nível: Aberto

Domingo: 10:00 – 11:30

Duração: 90 min

This work is a powerful mix of dance, acro, contact, fluidity and diversity in movement.. dancing with another body. No space, no time. People dance together, even if only for a few minutes, and they maintain most of the time some point of contact between their bodies.

It might only be their fingertips touching or they might be rolling acrobatically over each other’s shoulders. It might be slow and intimate, it might be whirling and fast. Dancers can lead and follow and they trust their weight to one another.

From these basic principles the journey begins.. Trust, Passion, Commitment, Love, Communication, Vision, and Union—these are the seven points of contact that we long for, these are the treasures of sharing.

The shadow aspects of the seven Points  represent the places where we hold back, our fears, confusions, insecurities, and struggles. They are places not to be avoided, but embraced and transformed into avenues for greater contact
