Discover the power of whirling with Alchemy Spinning™ at NunArt on June 27th, 2015.

Join us for an unforgettable experience: a Sufi-inspired Alchemy Spinning Workshop to expand our consciousness and connect with basic human goodness through our fully embodied presence.

Alchemy Spinning™ is a powerful and yet accessible whirling practice at the intersection of mindfulness and movement.

Inspired on Sufi Dervishes and other whirling dances of the world, Alchemy spinning makes the physical, psychological and spiritual benefits of whirling available to everybody.

Alchemy Spinning™ combines dance, movement, yoga, breath work, and meditation.

Alchemy Spinning™ is an excellent platform for personal growth, healing, innovation, group facilitation and artistic inspiration.

Experience an expanded state of consciousness

Become more aware, present and embodied

Discover your own true power to heal your life
Unleash your creativity and your artistic expression
Awaken joy, inner peace, and compassion towards self and others


For the first two thirds of the workshop we will work on several exercises that combine dance, yoga, breathing and meditation in order to connect deeply with our own bodies, balance the flow of energy in our chakras and along our spines, and root ourselves firmly in the Earth, while charging up our energy.  This is the key to avoid and manage dizziness.

The last third of the workshop we will learn basic whirling techniques and we will create and hold a safe space for the participants to spin at will, but each person is encouraged to spin according to their own needs and feelings, entering and exiting the spinning space as they feel compelled to.

No previous dance experience is necessary.
