Day 3 will be filled with relaxing and swimming in the Big Sur river, Contact Yoga, and communing with nature. Day 4 will be a leisure morning in camp and hike out.

Thai Massage addresses and combines techniques usually found isolated in the western physiotherapies including Trigger Point Treatments, Myofascial Techniques, Neuro Muscular therapy, and Manual Therapy among others.

Intuitive Dance Journey

 

Heart opening meditation combined with contact improvisation to deepen intuition and connect with others in their healing journey.

Anjuli and Alexis are excited to offer a workshop together that combines elements of their work with meditation, dance, and emotional-intuitive healing through movement.

The workshop will focus on exploring our own dance grounded in guided movement and seated meditation. With solo dancing and contact improvisation, we will encourage heart opening and deepened awareness of the intuitive body. Using concepts of touch and resonance to tune into movement cues and expression, we will let go of our ego-patterned and anticipated movements. Ultimately, the workshop will culminate in a spirit journey, allowing each person to move through space with supportive contact from fellow dancers.

Finding Balance: Yoga, Balancing, and Flying

December 4, 2011 – 6:30 – 8:30 p.m.

Divinitree Studio, Santa Cruz

Alok and Anjuli will guide you on a journey of finding balance and playfulness in relation to yourself and others.

Together we will explore the delicate balance between effort and surrender in a creative, safe environment. By working with this balance we learn to find ease in life’s challenges.

Using group support, inversions and flying we move beyond our limitations, building confidence and trust. All levels are welcome and fun is guaranteed!

Alok Rocheleau is excited to assist people in finding balance in their practice as well as life. He emphasizes the connection and unity found through trust, communication and playfulness. The courage to trust brings us to a world beyond boundaries and limitations leading to a greater sense of well being and expanded possibilities.

Her practice of Embodied Resonance, combining elements of contact improvisation, butoh, and martial arts, focuses on using the body as a vehicle to explore internal awareness.

Dancing Into Your Edge: A Movement and Sound Workshop

View Flyer

November 19, 2011, 7-9:30 PM

Flying Yoga Shala, Oakland, CA

Together we will explore how our expression through movement and sound allows us to open up the body and release stored energy, providing the space to listen to our inner self.

Using techniques and inspiration from martial arts, contact improvisation and butoh, Anjuli will guide you through exercises to awaken the body. We will move from circular, warming exercises into paired and group work, using concepts of resonance and touch to help us tune into our inner cues for movement and expression letting go of our ego-patterned, anticipated movements. The evening will climax with a blind-folded spirit journey that will allow each person to move through space with supportive contact from the group. We will end with a free dance allowing us to bring this new awareness and sensitivity into a formless and free space. Abram will be sharing his live and electronic soundscapes with us for this event, creating an ambiance for fluidity and authentic expression.

$40 entrance fee
