Eastwest Dance Workshop

Dancing your Path

Exploring the Spiral through Land to Water Yoga, Intuitive Dance and Shin Soma® Bodywork

Led by Amy Bush and Michelle Iklé

The Eastwest Somatics Institute’s curriculum is a three-dimensional, radiant model: a spiral, where somatic yoga, dance, and bodywork radiate out from the core of Shin, where Mind and Body are One.  Our work seamlessly moves through and around each of these core processes continuously.  In Land to Water Yoga, a five-stage progression developed by Sondra Fraleigh, we move with playful curiosity through gentle yoga patterns that anyone can do.  Through Intuitive Dance experiences, we awaken the dancer in everyone using imagery and guided improvisations--often dancing in the environment, exploring dream images and possible selves.  In Shin Soma® Bodywork, we teach Flow Repatterning and Teaching through Touch techniques that follow patterns already present while introducing new patterns along the lines of least resistance- allowing for greater ease and pleasure in movement.  Participants for the full workshop will earn one full level of credit toward Eastwest certification.

*Registration for the workshop also includes conference registration for the Dancing your Path Conference on Saturday, May 19, 2018.
