ABOUT THE SESSIONS
Tai chi session with Bin Zhu:
Be still like a mountain, flow like a rivier. 太极，Taichi or Taijiquan is an internal Chinese martial art based on Taoist and Confucius philosophy around the dynamic relationship of yin and yang. Nowadays it's mainly practiced as a form of moving meditation, mindfulness in motion to promotes even respiration, balance and relaxation leading one to feel grounded, centered, relaxed, calm and at ease. During the workshop we will gently warm up the body, then continue with a short still meditation, practice abdominal breathing and visualization. We will end the workshop experiencing a short form of Taichi in combination of Qigong (energy work) called Baduanjin 8 silky brocades. The practice is designed to re-establish the normal circulation of energy in the body, wake up the life force Chi or Qi to stimulate the mental and physical health.
SIT in Motion with Zahira Mous:
SIT stands for Self-Integration Tools.
In SIT IN MOTION you are guided to turn to your body for wisdom. Through guided dance improvisation exercises, you get to explore movement in a playful way. You’ll be invited to allow the body to lead your dance and observe the (control of) the mind. This training allows you to step out of form and into Being. This practice increases your self-awareness. Some movement assignments are directed from specific energy centers, such as the root, the hara, the solar plexus,
and the heart space. The workshop also provides creative assignments, possibly: drawing our inner energy in abstract ways on paper, dancing what we’ve drawn, dancing what someone else drew... All to stimulate being in the moment, observing, becoming aware of what moves inside of us, and to see it visually. And to be seen. To sit with yourself. With presence. SIT in Motion brings joy, aliveness, and awareness through creative flow.
All materials will be included.
Vegetarian lunch will be catered (vegan options available). Let us know your dietary needs.
