- 2 hr2 hours
- Dance Studio, Or Festival
How do you maintain a healthy heart? - Eat well; get the blood pumping; and be close to other hearts :) Our Healthy Heart Workshop is designed with this in mind, and is followed by teatime - healthy heart-healing teas of course :) Workshop Structure: A 2-hour live music composition has been especially designed to help guide the different phases of this workshop. Tension-releasing warm up: 30 min Contact dance, yoga, contact massage & Feldenkrais methods are combined to accomplish this part of the workshop. Dance: 1 hour Phase one: bringing our hearts together: - Tango, Expression & Contact Improvisation techniques that bring the hearts together in a united movement meditation. Phase two: getting our hearts pumping - Rhythm dance movements that get the heart pumping: combining folkloric dances with modern Expression movements. - Cool down: Group meditation, sound bath, and tea :) And teatime wouldn't be complete without a good babbling reflection with our fellow workshops participants, a healthy nibble, and bringing out the magic of just hanging out. Workshop Mantra: Healthy heart - healthy love, healthy love - healthy people, healthy people - healthy Earth, healthy Earth - healthy heart. Skill Level: As with all our workshops they are designed for all ages and abilities. Due to Covid restrictions, we won't be hosting workshops in person until after lock down, hopefully in April.
