Workshop 4
Recovered Alchemy
This workshop recovers and consolidates the knowledge
and experiences of the earlier workshops. We work directly on the search of personality and spirit as a way to understand, interprete and communicate through our bodies.
This activity can be seen as a initial path where we look for the intimate experience related to the mystery of movement in harmony, and its dependence on the discovery of the body as receptor not only of its surroundings, but of the inner and spiritual self.

Every workshop can be adapted to different levels, beginners, medium level, advanced students.
