Dance, like music, is not just an aesthetic expression. Taken by the sound of the music, the dancer enters into another level of reality, both communal and universal. Not only the beautiful, the elegant, or the sophisticated belongs, but everyone. The dance possesses an invisible force that can draw a person farther than he or she imagines, concerned with genuine, creative movement. The objective is to re-establish the unity of body, mind and soul.
We dance under many circumstances. It is like community preventative therapy. Life feels good. It is no small thing to dance in community. It is a great harmonizing measure.
ARTESAN SHOWS offers workshops of west african dance and hip hop freestyle dance.
Vinyasa yoga, in which movement is synchronized to the breath. This style is sometimes also called flow yoga, because of the smooth way that the poses run together and become like a dance. Connection between movement and breath.
This style allows for a lot of variety, but will almost certainly include sun salutations. Expect movement, not just stretching.
Vinyasa’s strength is in its diversity. There is no single philosophy, rulebook, or sequence so there is a lot of room for individual personalities and quirks to come through.
ARTESAN´S offers workshops and trainings of vinyasa yoga.
