Kundalini Yoga

Please bring your own blanket, mat and drinks!
Kundaliniyoga (as taught by Yogi Bhajan) is a profund technique, an exploration to meet your Self. The interweaving of different aspects such as Asana (bodypostures), Pranayama (breathing exercices), Mantra and the concious contact wit the Bandhas (bodylocks) is unique to this style.
Kundaliniyoga is dynamic, challenging, as well as meditative, relaxing and opening.
The mind gets conciously directed to an access of deeper levels of being.
It is an experience to dive into the inside and to conciously meet the unknown!

Vinyasa Yoga

Please bring your own blanket, mat and drinks!
Vinyasa Yoga offers a space in which one can experience flow in its very nature.
It goes back to the root of tradtitional Hatha Yoga and works with the Asanas (body postures).
It interweaves movement and breath to a continous flow and allows a deep falling into this experience and into the present moment.
Vinyasa Yoga teaches the most basic body postures and brings awareness to body alignment and breath.
As it recognizes the nature of movement and change in all things it can teach as well how to move more fluent and graceful through every day life.

VoiceYoga

Our voice is our mouthpiece into the world. It enables authentic expression and communication with others. At the same time our voice mirrors many of our beliefs, it's not beautiful enough, sounds squeaky, clatters, stammers, strikes a false note etc.. We're standing in our own way blocking our free expression. VoiceYoga opens a space for us to explore our voice and the body-voice connection playfully. To leave old beliefs behind that don't serve us and embark on a journey of discovery. Both voice and body are anchors in the present and show us the way to being free. VoiceYoga is the combination of yoga poses, breathwork, holistic voice work and mantra singing. On a physical as well as energetical level we're connecting our abdominal force with the heart (chest voice) and the head (head voice). This sets free our potential. In VoiceYoga we're humming and buzzing, toning and singing, screaming, laughing and listening to silence. We experience how body and sound influence each other. Sinking deep into our own vibration, finding our inner voice.

Spreading Our Wings – Yoga for free breath

Yoga connects body, mind and soul. In this yoga session we focus on the lungs. A nice flow and twists help us to spread our wings in all directions and bring new life to those corners of our lungs that we have neglected. We explore how the new found inner freedom of our breath effects our thinking and feeling and how spreading our wings lifts our being into higher spheres.

Amelie Quack

sees herself as a bridgebuilder between people and worlds, between body and mind, thinking and feeling, between the obvious and the hidden potential. She studied psychology and cognitive neuroscience in Munich and Australia. To balance out this overly intellectual training she got onto the path of yoga. Here she learns to listen closer to her body and sense finer and finer. In yoga she also discovered how much she enjoys singing and that she can touch people's hearts with her voice. In her work she connects the different pieces of her path: Mind, body and voice. She opens up spaces for people to meet themselves and others in a playful and free way – using the voice and body. She's based in Munich, teaches yoga and VoiceYoga there and at festivals, leads singing circles and gives concerts. Besides she writes for the blog "God Says No Underwear" and as a Feelgood Manager gets business people onto the path of mindfulness.

Shiatsu Dance

I will show you the ‚Aikido walk‘, how you can touch someone effordless by ‚pouring‘ your weight out of you center and how you can use your physical structure; the basics for a focussed shiatsu.
We will massage -  each other and one after another.
With hands, ellbows and our whole body (inspired by Contact Improvisation) we will bring us into motion and therefore start to dance.
Also in a  passive and following role we learn how to be available for the dance, actively use our structure and feel inspired and encouraged.
A dive into the somatic world! Learning with our bodies.

Technique playfully

In this Contact Improvisation Workshop we‘d like to research playfully – because playfully we learn the most easilly… well, I do!
We will practise with the qualities of CI like rolling, gliding or bonding and then let it flow again.
We‘ll research with the change of levels and with the distribution our weight. Lifts can therefore result organically and freely. Some playful impulse will help us not to take it too serious and help us to relax our patterns/muscles.
May my impulses inspire you for your inner and outer dance.

A touch of Hawaiian massage

Aloha-Massage ritual

"From flow in the dance ... to flow on the body"

In this workshop, we will deepen our love and awareness of our body, the temple of the soul. Supported by music, breath, and the conscious dance from our center, we follow the flow of our movement and live it through us and in contact with others, as the "unique beings" that we are. For this "being in touch" we give each other an oil massage, "a dance with the landscape"; a touch of Hawaiian massage. Stretch out, relax and enjoy! Please bring cloth / towel and oil. The massage is carried out on the floor.

Nature dance - dance nature

You are invited to a dancing adventure, the direct experience of the environment through the quality of being of the body.
The perception of moods & structures of the landscape, of fauna & flora and the elementary forces...
The natural ability to sense sensations in the body & to translate them into movement in an improvised way.
Nature, as a dance can be felt, is the playful research field in this play shop.
Instruments such as slow motion, eavesdropping & principles from Contact Improvisation serve as inspiration for sensual movement, bowing, dancing and an unbiased existence.
Since it is about improvisation, the critical, better-knowing & judgmental mind may take a back seat
and make room for an astonished liveliness.
Experience for yourself how it feels.
Serve the dance and the dance serves you.

I-motion playshop

'I stands for improvisation = to allow something spontaneous to arise spontaneously & e.g.:
organically, smooth, sensually, animalistic, elementary and enjoyably to move & let yourself be moved ...
Suitable for anyone who dares to try out perception and movement impulses and enjoys listening and being themselves & dancing in contact.
On this dance trip the body is allowed to give the input, it is like a gift of letting it happen.
If none of this tells you anything, it's like if you heard about swimming - how interesting it feels, but you can only experience it if you get involved and you feel what it feels like to be in the water.
You don't need any dance steps here to accomplish something.
It is possible to experience something here that you didn't learn at school and which gives you a sensuality and liveliness that may be familiar to you from your childhood and yet is unique every time ...
Let life dance you ...
Somatic self-experience in dance - with contact, improvisation, creative expressive dance, breath and voice.
Play & discover the sense of dance ... discover the meaning of dance ...
An experimental space to enjoy movement, encounter, calm, silence and sound. Listen to what may show: turn to the known and the unknown.
Notice how you feel life within yourself, what speed is appropriate for you and what can inspire you in the field of the group.
The improvisation of dance and movement can take you on a journey to feel, experience and be amazed.
Principles and impulses from contact improvisation & creative expressive dance invite you to research and playfully discover.

Taro Tikitiki

Hello and greetings
Contact Improvisation is a gift for me in that enables me to be playful to its and to follow the body’s impulses, to listen to the reflexe and to dedicate myself to improvisation. Try something that can be challenging, dare to show fear of doing it wrong. An attempt was made to use and enjoy the movement, to try out an interplay and to make it happen. For me, improvisation is among other things, the interesting thing about dancing CI, what kind of willingness it has or should feel like. Jams & festivals for CI & dance, sound improvisation cast a spell over me to discover and discover how one can inspire contact with improvisation & sound improvisation. How much is needed, how much is not and how often it is to see how unique each dance & jam is to be experienced. To play on a jam, there are a few principles I like to follow:
Dance yourself to get in the mood. Listening and perceiving had happened in the room. Let myself be inspired by the dance field to play, activated. Possibly underpinning a dance scene or emphasizing the atmosphere in the room. In the back of the mind, the dance room may and may have an interesting background noise even without obvious music. As with dancing, starting with a sound, sound and swapping wherever the journey may go and being ready to stop and see if the silent echo continues...
