3-Week Morning Challenge: Body-Mind-Centering ®
Space, Suppleness and Ease with Nina Wehnert

Nov 06-24, 2017
Mo-Fr 08.30 -10.00
Studio Sonne, Sonnenallee 67
English
130 €

In this 3-Week Morning Challenge “Body-Mind-Centering ®“ with Nina, we will explore structures of the body and their possibilities for movement.

Week 1
Bones!
Bones are the basic supporting structure, they provide clarity and lightness, they lever us through space and support weight in relationship to gravity. They are a container for organs and spaces within the joints give us the possibility for movement.

Week 2
Embryology!
We will meet pathways that different body tissues like bones, fascia, nerves and organs took, how they found their places to grow and develop into a functional multilayered full-body being! Understanding from where they come from and what they are now. It is a story of creating space and matter, of differentiation and integration. A journey of migrating, folding, unfolding, spiraling, touch and meeting- aspects that are still inherent in our bodies, in our dances -and in our lives!

Week 3
Developmental Movement Patterns and Fluidity!
Our structures and movement developed in the fluid environment of our mother’s womb.  Fluids support flow, ease and rest in movement. We will explore rolling, crawling, coordination from center to periphery, soft spine and fluid central axis as a base for our movements today.

3-Week Morning Voice Challenge: The Body as a Sound System
Listening – Sounding – Becoming Vibrational with Robert Liethoff

Oct 16-Nov 03, 2017
Mo-Fr 08.30-10.00
Studio Sonne
English
130 €

Do we know what voice is? How do we perceive sound? How do voice, sound and body interact during the act of singing, making sounds and speaking? Can we be guided by sound sensory perception? This 3-week morning intensive will connect cultivating perception, ear training, and the inquiry of one’s own body. Through this process, we can develop a rich, spacious and a warm voice within a receptive body and mind.

Week 1
Theory

  • Introduction to the physiology of the voice
  • Anatomy – focus on the ears
  • Introduction to sound – sound texture, sound directions

 Practice

  • Focus on the invisible:  ‘sound perception’ – experiencing sound through listening exercises – waking up our ears – becoming familiar with physical listening
  • Using the voice part 1 – ‘getting familiar with our voices through singing on vowels’

Week 2
Theory

  • Explanation of the function of the larynx – vocal chords in action
  • Anatomy – focus on the larynx
  • Anatomy – fascia tissue

Practice

  • Waking up our ears – exploring of the different sound shapes in our voice
  • Using the voice – exploring the relationship between body & sound textures
  • Using the voice – waking up the larynx as a listening instrument

Week 3
Theory

  • The mouth – less ‘bite’ – more ‘acoustics’
  • Singing voice & speaking voice – where can they learn from each other?

Practice

  • Using the voice – mouth acoustics
  • Using the voice – ‘kill’ the socially adapted voice – working with text
  • Group improvisations

10-Week Course: Introduction to Shadow Yoga
with
Alexandra Kreis

Jan 19-Mar 23, 2018
Fr 16.30–18.00
Gelber Raum, Mariannenstr. 48
English
135 €

Shadow Yoga – short for ‘Hatha Yoga in Shadow Style’ – is a unique style, that has taken into account the western lifestyle, while staying true to traditional hatha yoga texts. The structural approach brings clarity and empowers the student to establish self trust, intuition, and a home practice. In this course we will start with the first prelude – the basic form of building strength in vital regions of the body. To build a sensible practice, the practitioner first needs to learn to reign in the limbs and fluidly synchronise the breath with movements, gain a good understanding of how to breathe in ujayi and learn the bandhas. Every class will finish with an easy asana and cool down exercises.
