Introduction to ShinGaia: Module II
Time & Location TBA (3 hour)
Pay as you can, suggested €20-60
This work is based on traditional Integral Yoga, and incorporates elements of dance, somatics, the martial and energy arts, systems thinking and yoga philosophy. Module I introduced some of the basic principles that many of you are likely to have already experienced in Ann's weekly Yoga classes. Module II begins to introduce some new elements from dance.
In addition to our ever-constant weaving of mind, body and breath, we will explore aspects of self, the emotional body, its textures and stories. For those of you studying with Ann for any amount of time, you may recognise that this is an experiential continuation focused on self-study (svadhyaya). As Nannette Bertschy once said (and I am paraphrasing and probably also re-phrasing), knowing who and how you are, in your full-bodied being, is the first step to knowing where you are -- orienting -- so that you can respond and act in relation with the world.
So, here we go -- some enjoyable and, hopefully, enlightening basics!
