Discover the power of whirling with Alchemy Spinning on December 12th 2015 at Alnöuart, Barcelona.
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.
This workshop will take us on a journey to connect deeply with our bodies and our basic human goodness, and experience an expanded state of consciousness through the whirling dance.
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 along our spines, and root ourselves firmly in the Earth, while charging up our energy and opening our hearts. This is the key to avoid and manage dizziness.
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.
We will end up the workshop with an integration to connect deeply with the experience, ideas, insights, healing and creativity through art.
Open to any person of any age and fitness level. No previous dance experience is necessary.
Date: December 12th, 10am-5pm
Venue: Alnöuart, C/Berga, 36, Barcelona
Cost: 70€ Early Bird until December 1st. 80€ after December 1st.
