11th September 2022 : Stability through Structure

 

We’ll be taking the concept we were introduced to during Master Dings recent visit to Dublin and further developing it through a continued

series of partner work exercises.

 

While balance is the ability to maintain equilibrium, stability is being able to maintain balance, through change. Often, we can achieve balance, but we can only maintain it while we are in a quiet space, our ‘sanctuary’. Through these exercises we begin to learn that our sanctuary isn’t necessarily a place we go to, rather firstly a place that carry within us, and then, through practice, we become that place, in totality.

 

This workshop is open to all who are interested in further exploring this beautiful art.

27th November 2022: Stillness in Motion, Motion in Stillness

 

In this two-part workshop we’ll be exploring this seemingly contradictory concept.

 

In the morning we’ll be looking at the body in motion while keeping concepts of relaxation, stability, and continuous settling. Imagine being driven around in a Rolls Royce, a bumpy road, noisy outside but within, quiet, smooth and restful.

 

In the afternoon, we’ll look at the body stationary without, but within the intention of the mind creates a powerful dynamic. Imagine a deep river, still waters run deep…
