Retreat of Ancestral Movement, Yoga and walk

2 octobre 2022 @ 17:00 8 octobre 2022 @ 18:00

Ancestral movement: coming back to the roots

Much of the Afro-Brazilian culture in its essence is driven by a very strong bond with nature. With that in mind, Julia Lauany Duarte (instructor) developed a series of movement workshops that derives inspiration from the natural elements (water, earth, fire, air, ether) and the Orixás (deities revered in Afro-Brazilian religions) which are usually connected to one or more elements of the nature and have specific dance and movement characteristics. Throughout the five classes, we will use movement as a means to connect with each person’s roots, ancestry, spirituality and healing processes in both a group and individual setting. It will be a cumulative experience where each class’s information builds up upon one another in order to build an array of tools that can be used individually by each person after the retreat is over if they wish to do so. The workshops will focus on the exploration of individuality and authentic movement by providing guided explorations throughout the many facets and textures of movement and dance. With that comes the discoveries of how the embodied practice of authenticity in one’s movement (the dance that exists within each and every one of us) can provide healing and therapeutic processes in the body, mind, and spirit of an individual.
