Workshop Description: Body-Mind Dance
Marina will guide us into creative explorations for embodying and aligning our mind, heart and instinct through movement, touch, voice, and drawing. We will practice Listening to the self, Connecting with others from within and Relating to nature. The explorations are based on Body-Mind Centering® and MoverWitness Exchange, and aim to empower our movement in life, from a place of self discovery and re-connection. Marina will facilitate our smooth rooting to the present moment while setting us free to be and express fully who we are.
Body-Mind Centering®-Private sessions by Marina Tsartsara
BMC® is an experiential and creative process of psychophysical integration, with the underlying goal to discover the ease that underlies personal transformation. In these sessions we will have the space and time for listening, exploring and supporting any physical or emotional disbalance that you would like to bring in, through personal embodiment of any body system in need of attention. We will use movement, touch, voice and mind. The uniqueness of this work lies in the specificity with which each of the body systems can be listened, embodied and psychophysically integrated, as well as in the fundamental groundwork of 'developmental movement re-patterning' (psychophysical integration from being in the uterus till the end of our first year of life), so as to understand and describe body-mind relationships.
