Asana Practice and Contact Improvisation

Sunday 19.1.2020 10:00 – 13:00 at

The Asana practice on the mat is a wonderful movement practice. It connects breath, movement, attention and thought, and because it is anchored on the Yoga mat, it also allows us to experience the body’s movement possibilities with clarity.

Contact Improvisation on the other hand…. is in comparison anarchistic. It intentionally aims to break loose from all anchors but one: our innate and natural connection to gravity and to the earth. If the Asana practice translates movement to the language of the brain, Contact Improvisation tries to speak only Body.

Which is exactly why it is so exciting to practice both side by side !

In this workshop we do exactly that. We practice Asana on the Yoga mat, and we enter the organic moving universe of Contact Improvisation. Both practices are given the space and time they need and deserve, and the deeper connections and interactions between the two are gently revealed. Join this beautiful journey and learn to experience yourself in movement and in clarity, at once.

Michael is a Berlin-based performer and Yoga Teacher. He has studied Improvisation with teachers such as Nancy Stark Smith, Lilo Stahl, Rosalind Crisp, Sten Rudstrom and others. He has created and performed his own original solo work and has performed with the Berlin Ensemble Nico and the Navigators, directed by Nicola Hümpel.
