BMC Intensive Nina Wehnert
Body-Mind Centering® into Dance
You are invited to spend these days with your somatic family in a private country house by the warm costs of Algarve, Portugal. We will Iive, eat and dance together in a nourishing rural environment between hills and the sea.
With Nina Wehnert, who is part of the regular teaching team of moveus, the Licensed BMC® Certification Program in Germany.
This course is being adapted to the restrictions of the epidemic needs.
We make space for individual choice to be heard and a hygiene protocole to be respected.
Body-Mind Centering® into Dance
Our first experience of movement and relation was in fluidity. Our tissues were formed in fluid environment. Inside our bodies fluids nourish and move us in various ways. They are a network that penetrate every tissue of our body, communicate and transport. Embodying them offers lightness, freedom, dynamic and stillness of movement and being. They underlie presence and transformation.
In this workshop we will dance, explore and experience our fluid body from an experiental perspective. Using movement, touch, anatomical information, sound and breath we will journey through our body. We will dive into the specificity of certain fluids aswell as the fluid ground through all our cells and tissues that supports being and doing. Meeting the constancy of change and impermanence! Embryology and early developmental movement patterns will be added into the workshop.
We, Monica & Samuel, invite you to an original country side house nestled in typical Portuguese farmland at the Algarve coast close by Faro.
We have been building in new ways, with respect for the tradition, our grandfather’s farm into an organic ecological home. This week long gathering gives us time to be together connecting with nature and being part of the country side life during the blessed harvesting time of September.
