Axis Syllabus & BodyMind Centering® workshops week at Ponderosa.

The approach of this five-day-long workshop is the exploration and contextualisation of the body’s multidimensional existence. Examining the principles of biomechanics can help us to understand the body in different movement situations and, if necessary, to adapt our training methods to it. The question of a supporting alignment in contemporary dance, contact improvisation, improvisation and partnering will accompany us in all sessions. What’s the idea behind a “proper alignment”? For what is it needed and how does the concept of alignment supports and/or hinders each individual movement expressions? Let’s roll, crawl, run and jump-preparing the body for more diverse and sweeping choreographies.

BodyMind CenteringⓇ — Contents and Containers
with Ayelet Yekutiel

Exploring the interplay and interdependence of contents and containers in the bodily matrix.
From the fluid pressure in our vessels, through the spongie airfield lungs in our rib-basket, the cellular fluid in the microscopic membranes, the blood marrow in the deep caves of our bones, the intestines in our belly sac, the voice box, and the silky envelope of the skin we live in, to our environment, context, circle and self – the play of equilibrium and mutual support between Contents & Containers manifests in shape, texture, relationship and movement.

Combine the two workshops:
We recommend taking both the BodyMind Centring® and AxisSyllabus workshops as their contents intentionally and deeply complement each other. The workshops are planned in a comfortable time table for participation in both, with enough resting and digesting time in between. We might suggest some combined activities throughout the week. We – Ayelet and Diana – plan to take part in most of the sessions of each other in order to resonate, complement and adjust our propositions.

The two workshops together are available at a special discounted rate! more about the combination:
