About the event

We are launching Somatic Sundays where we offer workshops focused on movement and somatic work.

In this workshop we will be working with voice as a tool for communication with others through the different parts of the spine.

We will do simple exercises to gently warm up the body, particularly the pelvic floor, and transferring heat to the rest of the spine in order for us to incorporate exercises with the voice and all parts of the mouth.

We will be working in pairs as well as a whole group, practicing our ability to listen and voicing at the same time together with others.

This workshop propose that voicing and awareness of our bodies help us to create relation to what is outside of our skin, the practice of empathy, kineasthetic empathy, intimacy and collective empowerment.

This practice is for every body interested in somatic practices as well as dance, but no previous experience in either practice required.
