Martina Rožić - Dance and enjoy your freedom

A workshop for beginners (as well as for everyone else:)

In this workshop we are going to explore our own body and movement, search and explore the center, circle and spiral around the center, dance on our own first and see what possibilities there to come up from the floor and sink down again, becoming friend with the floor first.
Then, we will gently dare to go beyond, travel through space, create waves in our bodies (more than 70% of our body is made up of water) and have courageous heart and freedom to dance without having anything to lose except the limits we believe to have.
Spiraling will lead us into rolling and by getting into contact we will intertwine our spirals with other bodies' spirals, weaving a story about one organic being breathing and moving together and going back to our own places where we can see what works best for us, creating space and making up time to continue....
Finally, when our centers meet again we will become soul-mates, twins, listening to each other, eyes closed, moving through space, changing levels, leading, following, listening, breathing—paying special attention to the moments when we separate and meet again, when we slow down or speed up, our dance never ending.
Just like in life, we meet and go away, we meet again and part again, the story as old as our soul continues, feeling good on our own as well as when we are together, our dance never ceases, the new waves are coming and we flow again....

"Yoga practices help us develop awareness and detachment. When we can begin to watch our personality's fearful reactions to situations, we can develop compassion for our own lack of courage. Through compassion we realize there's nothing to lose. There's nothing to grasp, nothing to get -- we are everything. Flexibility of mind as well as body allows for adaptability and ease of being in an ever-changing world." (unknown author)
