The workshop will weave a journey through different exercises, eventually flowing into the free play. Focusing on reawakening awareness upon stored unnecessary tensions and those patterns that are not always functional, we gradually move beyond the field of mere physicality to embrace all aspects of the being. Only when able to recognise how much tension we accumulate in our system (physical, mental, emotional..), by releasing, we can transform the tension in real power while allowing the body to re-function organically and efficiently finding back its integrity. From that point we can enjoy the richness that unfolds in every small movement, especially when in connection with another person. In this way, we learn to not add, to not force, to not run away, we experience instead how to stay with what is there and ride every wave with honesty and wholeness. The partner in this practice is the best mirror, allowing us to playfully stretch the comfort zone and to get in touch with our patterns of reaction. The moments of free-play become opportunities to access a never ending flow of possibilities, responding intuitively with open mind and available body, crafting together an unpredictable interplay between confrontation & collaboration.
