MOVEMENT and THERAPEUTIC WORKSHOPS

Ahimsa

Remember when you were a child, you are living completely authentically. We feel all the signals of our bodies and we follow them immediately. We are totally present and honest with ourselves. Growing up we start using our body as a self-value-building mechanism, we start ignoring body wisdom and manipulating it in a very violent way. When we want to scream we can’t, when we need support we are afraid to ask, we control ourselves too much and lots of our problems just because of that. Losing the connection with the body, we can feel lost and stuck, anxious, suppressed, full of fear... 

Based on the natural body wisdom movement can heal, and the body could be the eternal source of pleasure. The value of the deep connection with the body is priceless, and we can create or rather come back to this awareness level and freedom as in childhood.

Ahimsa is a unique movement therapy session created by Mitya Staev. It is opened for everyone. All ages, genders identity and body awareness levels are welcome for this session.  

If you tried to release your problems working with peripheral life aspects, it’s time to go directly to the source. This journey is full of primal knowledge which we used to ignore in a postmodern society. Mitya invites you to come back to your genuine relationship with the body, play the games such as contact improvisation, acro yoga, and be brave enough to simply Relax, Trust and Follow.

 

 

 

CONTACT IMPROVISATION

 

As Mitya often says: “Contact improvisation workshops are for everyone who wants to explore the most fundamental language for all of us. The Body language. ”. Your body is going to teach you how to relax, trust and follow, playfully create and observe the art of movement communication. Working in groups, pairs, trios, exploring different methods of connection. Different techniques will help you to prepare for this process. Some exercises will help you to open up for the deep presence, trust and listening to the movement narrative.  Contact improvisations workshop is not required any dance experience, it is for everyone.

 

 

 

AUTHENTIC MOVEMENT

An authentic movement workshop is a therapeutic practice for your mental and body health. This technique gives you a connection with your unconscious, helping you to become aware of your own patterns. This class is based on somatic psychology approaches and helps everyone harmonize and balance all inner processes of their body/mind system. Participants works in pairs, one of them is a mover - a person, with closed eyes, who follows any impulses of their body, through movements or sounds, allowing themselves to move without judgments but with a deep presence. And another partner as a witness - a person who watches a mover keeping them safe, observing their own response reflected through their feelings and thoughts as a natural reaction to the Movers act.  

 

This workshop is a simple but powerful practice, a therapeutical method to establish more compassionate relationship to themselves and others through the deep presence and acceptance of ones expression and experience.  

Open level workshop.
