Body Awakening Through Movement 

teacher Fedra Fouroulis

DSC_2492

There can be no life without movement and there can not be movement without life.

Everything in the universe, the nature, the stones, the earth, the trees, the air, is energy, as energy is our body and our feelings and our thoughts.

Man is a microcosm of the universe. So the same forces acting in nature, act within the human body.

The movement is the one that stimulates the activation of energy in the human body.
The rhythm of nature is: be born, flourish, to upscale, die to be reborn and  teaches us that every living thing has its own personal time and pace. So man, made of natural elements, has to follow his own personal pace. Every day the body and movement are affected by the filling & emptying of the moon, the direction and intensity of the air, the sunshine, the ground on which he walks.Crossing paths of life, man can discover that time is relative and paths crossing is the result of experiences and choices, making everyone his own reality.

In this seminar we are to find our own paths, our own nature. Ally with the elements. We want to open the abundant choices of expression through dance. Through movement, we discover, our personal power and our own paths.

June 27-29 Aerial Yoga Workshop

with Tiffany Kyriakoulis

Tiffany

Aerial yoga is a contemporary form of yoga: a fusion of traditional yoga asanas and aerial arts. It is suitable for both beginners and for more advanced yogis as classes can range from being gentle, using the hammock as a prop to more demanding ones, where the hammock is used for resistance. Some of the benefits of aerial yoga include: core and upper body strengthening, improved balance and improved alignment of the spine. Also, when hanging upside down (inversions), the brain is oxygenated due to increased blood flow, and this results in a more alert mind. Other benefits of inversions include: improved digestion, improved blood circulation and lymphatic drainage, improved hair growth and skin toning.

Join me for a fun workshop to discover aerial yoga’s exciting poses: in, on, behind, in front of and underneath the hammock! Let’s fly, hang and rest in the hammock!!

Practice 1 friday 27/6 18:30-20:30 Introducing the hammock…
Our first workshop will help us become familiar with the hammock. We’ll start off with keeping our feet on the ground and then we’ll learn how to sit and lie in the hammock and how to balance on it. Finally, we’ll explore our first feeling of defying gravity by being suspended in mid-air.

Practice 2 saturday 28/6 11:00-13:00 Popeye Aerial!
This will be a strengthening workout, using the hammock for resistance in order to work out the upper body, core muscles and legs.

Practice 3 saturday 28/6 18:30-20:30 Restorative Aerial
A relaxing workshop focusing on twists, stretches and cooling inversions.

Practice 4 sunday 29/6 11:00-13:00 AeroTrix
Let’s go out with a BANG! with our final workshop being a playful one full of acrobatics, flips and tricks!

July 15-17  Inprovisation & Feldenkrais workshop

Improvization & Feldenkrais

 Recognizing yourself  in movement… In this dance improvisation workshop we are given the opportunity to consciously experience the movement through our unique personal awareness. As we move we realize  our self – image we have of ourselves can change rather than being static and unchanging . Through traffic you can find ways to use energy, strength, sensitivity , working and expressing all the different aspects of yourself . The Feldenkrais method is a powerful tool in this direction and in an easy way can give us greater self-awareness and functionality coordinating feeling , thought , emotion and movement in one action.

July 25-27 Ashtanga Yoga Workshop

with Tina Myntz Zymaraki

Tina

Ashtanga Yoga: Theory & Practice

Known for both its vigor and the way it links yoga postures together into a continuous flow, Ashtanga Yoga is the art of following our awareness through and between postures, breaths, thoughts, and techniques integrating both theory and practice. It is a system transmitted to the modern world by Shri K. Pattabhi Jois (1915-2009) which involves synchronizing breath, attention and movement to produce a profound state of concentration by virtue of internal purification. During this in-depth weekend workshop, you will learn to employ core techniques like drishti and bandha, in order to awaken the body’s innate intelligence through a step-by-step exploration of the form, breathing, and movement upon which the series of postures in the classical Ashtanga method is built.

During the weekend, we will explore Ashtanga’s philosophy and practice, with guided sessions for every body. Learn about the building blocks of our practice and refine your technique for jump-throughs and jump backs. There will also be an in-depth exploration of the subtle aspects of the components and the inversions in the finishing postures. Morning sessions will begin with chanting & sitting in silence. The theory portion will include a closer study of the philosophy of Ashtanga Yoga, as set out by master Patanjali and the opportunity to explore highlights from the Yoga Sutras.

Injury-free beginners and practitioners from all yoga traditions are welcome to participate in this transformative weekend. The workshop will offer a solid foundation for what may turn out to be a lifelong love affair with this amazing practice for those new to it, and a renewed appreciation of its subtleties for those more experienced.

FRIDAY 19:00-21:30 ~ Theory & Practice: An Introduction to Ashtanga Yoga & The Fundamentals.

The workshop will begin with a detailed exploration of the fundamentals, in order to methodically and safely build the practice from the ground up and the inside out. The emphasis will be on the intricate details that allow the postures to feel simultaneously uplifting and grounded. We will also work with a precise outlining of the essential finishing postures that lead us naturally into pranayama and bandha practice as spontaneous awakening of intelligence and ease.

SATURDAY 10:30-13:00 Theory & Practice: Tristhana- The Core Principles Of The Ashtanga Practice. Unlock the techniques essential to unlocking the power and spirit of the Ashtanga practice. Delve deeply into the theory of tristhana, the core principles of the Ashtanga practice: breath, asana and gaze, as we move the practice deeper into the Primary Series, refining and illuminating, as we go.

SUNDAY 10:00-13:00 Practice: Primary Series, in the traditional Sanskrit count, followed by guided relaxation and metta (loving-kindness) meditation. The practice will be followed by a philosophy talk & discussion: The Yama & Niyama; practice in daily life, Q & A. This session will be very interactive and questions are encouraged!

A direct student of Ashtanga founder Shri K. Pattabhi Jois, Tina spent more than a year of practice with him both in Mysore and the USA. Although she has studied and practiced with many senior Ashtanga teachers, her approach is most influenced by her primary American teachers, Richard Freeman and Eddie Stern. It brings her great joy to share the practice, making it enjoyable and accessible to all. For more, please visit: http://yogawithtina.wordpress.com/about/

Injury-free beginners, intermediate and advanced levels of practitioners are all welcome to practice in harmony together.
