This spring we are hosting a week long Acrobatic Movement exploration and Somatic Intelligence immersion on Korfu at a beautiful location.
This immersion will be focused on creating a space to develop your body and movement practice and connecting with people on a similar path to integrate these insights into a larger life world context. While our core discipline will be partner acrobatics, we will integrate a range of different concepts including martial arts and body work. Beyond learning tricks and techniques, we want to offer a space to explore and experiment with different movement disciplines and connect on a community level.
These ideas are some of that this retreat is inspired by and wants to nurture:
My body is my home.
Community enriches practice.
Broadening horizon requires exploration.
Deepening practice removes barriers.
Integration requires space.
What is Somatic Intelligence?
SI describes the idea of understanding intelligence as the ability to recognize and apply patterns and that there is a unique access and experience of the patterns that structure our thoughts, feelings, and relations through our body, by means of touch, movement, and stillness.
Acrobatics are considered “all extraordinary movement feats”. And that is exactly where growth and expansion happen: Outside of the ordinary.
Who is this suited for?
This retreat is suitable for anyone that the above resonates with. We want to offer two tracks in particular: One for people who feel they are more at the beginning of their explorative movement practice and Another for those who feel they are further along this path and have collected some experience. Sessions will be shared and content will be presented in variations to accommodate each.
How can I attend?
While we recommend attending for the entire period, there will be options to attend for weekend or individual days.
