Living Spine

2.– 6. 10. 2019_Bratislava (SK)

An intensive dance workshop Living Spine is a concentrated dive into the depth of one of the most important parts of the body.

The spine is the basic structural pillar and the basic energy channel of the body. It connects the whole body, but also three important energy centers (three dantians) located on the energy channel passing through the spine. The yin and yang energy circulates through this channel and creates a very nutritious energy circuit, called a microcosmic orbit. Conscious work with it, is a very old energy cultivating technique that, in combination with breathing exercises, develops the flow of Qi in human body.

Through the movement, we will learn about the anatomical structure of the spine and its structural links to other parts of the body. We will also look at the yin and yang connections of the skeleton structure, which, when properly used, can enable us to use the whole body structure better and healthier. Thanks to the logic of the spine construction through the vertebrae, we will be able to work with the principle of chain reaction and sequence in the body. We will develop the plasticity of the spine and consequently of the entire body and then, set in a motion all these possibilities and knowledge individually, but also in partner exercises.

Conscious work with bones and energy has a great impact on health, and therefore it offers to professional asrtists a healthier approach to their body as well as their profession, and can be an inspiration in their creative work, but also in their lifestyle.
