Alchemy Spinning Workshop at Yoga Tree Telegraph in Berkeley

Alchemy Spinning Workshop at Yoga Tree Telegraph in Berkeley

Discover the power of whiling with Alchemy Spinning™ at Yoga Tree Telegraph on August 22nd, 2015.

Join us for an unforgettable experience: a Sufi-inspired Alchemy Spinning Workshop to expand our consciousness and connect with basic human goodness through our fully embodied presence.

Alchemy Spinning™ is a powerful and yet accessible whirling practice at the intersection of mindfulness and movement.

Inspired on Sufi Dervishes and other whirling dances of the world, Alchemy spinning makes the physical, psychological and spiritual benefits of whirling available to everybody.

Alchemy Spinning™ combines dance, movement, yoga, breath work, and meditation.

Alchemy Spinning™ is an excellent platform for personal growth, healing, innovation, group facilitation and artistic inspiration.

Experience an expanded state of consciousness
Become more aware, present and embodied
Discover your own true power to heal your life
Unleash your creativity and your artistic expression
Awaken joy, inner peace, and compassion towards self and others

Workshop

We will work on several exercises that combine dance, yoga, breathing and meditation in order to connect deeply with our own bodies, balance the flow of energy in our chakras along our spines, and root ourselves firmly in the Earth, while charging up our energy and opening our hearts.  This is the key to avoid and manage dizziness.

We will learn basic whirling techniques and we will create and hold a safe space for the participants to spin at will, but each person is encouraged to spin according to their own needs and feelings, entering and exiting the spinning space as they feel compelled to.

We will end up the workshop with an integration in order to connect deeply with our experience, ideas, insights, healing and creativity through art.

Open to any person of any age and fitness level. No previous dance experience is necessary.

Date: August 22, 2015 from 1:00pm-4:00pm

Venue: Yoga Tree @Telegraph,  2807 Telegraph Ave., Unit #A

Cost: $30 in advance; $35 at the door
