RESPIRATION IN MOVEMENT- a Body-Mind Centering® perspective, Espacio Garapa, Calle Torres 8, Sevilla

 Respiration,or breathing is taking place everywhere in our bodies all of the time’- Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen

 In this cycle of 4 consecutive classes, we will explore the anatomy and physiology of our breathing system (diafragms, lungs, cavities of the head, the skeletal and muscular protective and supportive structures…). We will not only explore external breathing, but also internal respiration, our primary breathing process- the exchange of gases at the cellular level-, and embryological breathing.

Hands-on, movement, improvisation and sounding will be our guidelines while we explore the interwovenness of these different layers of experiencing our ‘breathing nature’.

 Body-Mind Centering is an in-depth research into the living territory of the body. Acknowledging its past , present and future aspirations, utilizing voice, hand-on, improvisation and exchange to deepen our collective and individual knowledge of who we are, how we move, what our movements may evoke, express, provoke.

The workshop is open to both professionals in the field of movement, dance as to anyone else with a sincere interest to explore the moving body and mind. It is open to people with or without previous experience with Body-Mind Centering.

The classes are considered as one ‘unity’,  as one workshop, yet you can visit the sessions separately as well in case this is necessary for you.

The workshop will be taught in Spanish and/ or  English, French- depending on the request of participants.

Date: Tuesday April 5, Wednesday April 6, Thursday April 7, Friday April 8, 10h30-14h30

Place: Espacio Garapa, Calle Torres 8, Sevilla

Price: 100 euro for entire workshop, 30 euro/session if followed separately

    Are you leading any workshops in SEVILLA April-May of 2017? I’m a dancer from the US with family in Sevilla and I’m looking for improvisational and meditative dance when I visit next month. Any info will be much appreciated!

      Dear Ali,
      Sorry for the late reply but the website doesn’t deal with these kinds of requests/questions. Next time, you can reach out directly to the organizer or teacher.
