Yoga and authentic movement
Igniting your Inner Practice through Flow Yoga and Authentic Movement, by Christie Di Perna
In this workshop we will connect more deeply to our inner being through the practices of Flow Yoga and Authentic Movement.
In our daily Flow Yoga practice we will explore gentle flowing sequences coordinating breath with movement to connect with our inner body. We will focus on finding pure alignment in relationship to gravity, all the while respecting the unique anatomy of our bodies. By allowing our breath and awareness to guide us deeper inside the body, we create a space within from where we can meet the turbulences of our internal and external world with quiet and all-embracing acceptance.
In Authentic Movement we start from the stilness within our bodies to allow ourselves to express in movement any impulse, feeling or sensation that may arise within our awareness. We develop the capacity of our inner witness to non-judgementally accept anything that wants to express itself in outer form as we engage deeply with our inner creativity and aliveness. Authentic Movement is a wonderful practice to allow you to create your life from your most inner core, accepting every moment of your journey along the way.
Christie Di Perna is a dancer with ample experience in teaching dance, yoga, body awareness and movement to people from various backgrounds and age groups. She trained in Contemporary Dance at the London Contemporary Dance School, where she graduated in 2002. During this time she was introduced to Yoga, under the guidance of Susanne Lahusen, as well as to a whole range of Body-Mind Disciplines such as Feldenkrais, Alexander technique, Body-Mind Centering, Bartennieff Fundamentals and Developmental Movement. She is a graduate from the College of Cranio-Sacral Therapy, London, directed by Thomas Attlee, and currently finalizing her studies in Dance Movement Therapy at the center Agape in Koolskamp, België. During the summer of 2012 she traveled in India for three months to immerse herself in the Indian culture, and to deepen her practice of meditation and yoga (Yogapoint, Nasik). In her classes she emphasizes developing a harmonious relationship of the body with gravity, as well as deepening the inner connection to the (wise!) body. She also brings her humor, playfulness, creativity and personal experience to her teaching, creating a joyful and open atmosphere for people to discover themselves (and their bodies).
