'The Church says: the body is a sin. Science says: the body is a machine. Advertising says: the body is a business. Your body says: I am a Celebration'
It is an embodied movement-based system that borns out of my own curiosity and self-inquiry through this vast and mysterious body~wholeness that we are. Diverse elements are integrated such as Feldenkrais, authentic movement, contemporary dance, somatic practices, breathing awareness, rituals, and energetic recalibration among others. It is an alive system that continues to evolve and unfold as I am myself a fully alive process.
EMBODYING THE CHAKRAS
~ An experiential journey through the seven energetic centres ~
I'm delighted to invite you to this embodied movement practice that taps into each chakra as a tool for self-knowledge, healing, expression, manifestation and liberation. Through guided movement centred around internal experience and sensation, I will take you through the seven energetic centres. Breath, sound and meditation will be resources throughout the journey as well. Music will play an important role during the practice, creating different atmospheres for each chakra.
We will start with Muladhara (root chakra) all the way into Sahasrara (crown chakra), embodying each element and different qualities associated with them. The space is invitational and you can choose to follow at your own pace and depth, always with loving awareness, respect, and tenderness towards yourself, others and the space co-created together. You can take all the pauses that you need. At the end of the practice there will be an opportunity to share in circle and some time for yourself to journal and digest the experience.
WHAT ARE THE CHAKRAS?
The chakras are energetic vortexes that are part of the energetic body. Each one represents a different level of consciousness and of being in this world. They are related to different parts of the body and they are organised along the spine. These centres can be blocked or not in harmony, meaning that they are unable to generate or receive energy, so we begin to see imbalances in that particular plane of existence. For example if there's a deficiency of energy or blockage in our fifth chakra, there might be issues with communication.
WORKSHOP 'The three cavities'
~ Somatic Groundwork ~ Organic alignment ~ Dance exploration
In this class the focus will be on the three main cavities in the body: the skull, the rib basket, the pelvis, and their corresponding diaphragms. Exploring the interrelation between them as well as each cavity independently.
Moving through simple sequences that will explore our relationship with the ground, the space, with gravity. It is an invitation to feel into your sensations through your sense felt.
Allowing yourself to feel strong from the inside out, noticing the different flow of forces that travel through you, sensing and being informed by the tensegric organisation of the living architecture that you are.
The practice includes journaling.
Everybody is welcome! You don't need any experience in movement nor dancing.
Just bring your curiosity to move in different ways, as well as your body’s call to move intuitively, to unwind, to play, recalling the sensual being that you are through bodyful movement.
WHEN? Will be announced soon!
SIX WEEK SERIES 'Moving from within'
During this six week journey we will be exploring a different somatic floor based sequence inspired by the developmental movement patterns.
Diverse elements such as contemporary dance, authentic movement, improvisation, breathwork and meditation will be weaved within each gathering.
This Journey it is an invitation to:
~Listen to your body's voice and intelligence with an open heart, patience and honesty
~Explore an organic alignment from an embodied and living anatomy, rather than from a hierarchical and theoretical anatomic perspective
~Recall and retune with your inner guidance
~Tap into the pleasure of being your body
~Find more harmonic pathways to move in your everyday life, as well as bringing this embodied knowledge to any physical practice that you usually practice
~Journal as a way of documenting your insights, experiences during the whole course.
Many of us, because of different past life experiences that couldn't find a way to be expressed or be integrated, end up in rigidity or chronic pain, loosing vitality, ease, naturalness, spontaneity and authenticity in the way we move. So as we recall and find more harmonic ways of moving, the impact is seen directly in the way we feel, we think, we perceive, in the way we are in the world and connect with the environment.
We will be attending to how gravity travels through us, sensing our relationship with the earth, the space around and the other people in the room. Through each sequence we will give ourselves time to amplify our listening allowing new patterns and ways of moving to unfold.
All of the exercises are invitational and you can always give yourself the pauses you need!
Everyone is welcome! You don't need any specific experience in movement, dance or meditation.
This work it is inspired by Lucia's main mentor~guide Roxana Galand founder of 'La fuerza de la Naturaleza en el cuerpo y en la danza', by Moshé Feldenkrais, by Kaila June, founder of 'Somakinese School' and all the sensitive dancers~movers that she met along the way. It is also based in more than twenty years of experience in the field of movement, being herself her first laboratory.
New dates coming soon!
