Place: Ubud Yoga Center
Floating Across Elements in Aerial Silks
Content and structural overview:
When we are born we cross the bridge from the liquid surroundings of the amniotic fluids to the solid and aerially
realm of what we come to call life when we grow up. In this workshop we explore expression, movement and being
in this almost polar world between the ground and air we breathe. By using aerial silks as a tool to spread our wings
and explore movement off the ground we will dive into the experience of yet again crossing elements and opening
up a new perspective of grounding, connectedness and freedom while in the air.
The workshop is open for all levels and offers the opportunity to explore this beautiful tool of aerial silks and how it
can enrich our life and understanding of flow.
Workshop elements include:
– centering on and off the silks
– ground to silk flows, axis, explorations
– introduction to silks and safety
– climbing the silks and silk poses
– energetics of moving across elements
– integrating new experiences
– mechanics of moving in the silks
– combining the moves
