BALLET AND CANTIENICA. VIVATOMY* IN MOTION. | 28 JULY 2019    09.30-12.30

Transform and improve your ballet technique with Cantienica® body in evolution.

WORKSHOP PROGRAMME

  • Anatomy basics for a better understanding of the interconnection of deepest muscles throughout the body and introduction to principles of CANTIENICA® body in evolution
  • CANTIENICA® exercises for more flexibilty (e.g. in hip joints, shoulders), preparing you for the ballet exercises
  • Ballet exercises on the floor, at the barre and in the center
  • Exercises for healthy feet, to correct foot deformities, bowlegs and knock knees and stabalize hyper flexible feet or legs.

DETAILED WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION

The core of the CANTIENICA® muscle work are the interconnected muscles at the base of the pelvis, arranged in three highly potent layers supporting the torso, taking all weight off the leg joints. From this pelvic powerhouse the spine extends to its full length, vertebrae perfectly aligned, and lets ribcage, shoulders, and head find and keep their anatomically correct position. In CANTIENICA® exercises all movements happen three-dimensionally, which avoids injuries and guarantees ultimate strength - coming from slim, well-stretched muscles, ligaments and fascias.

In the workshop, we will apply the principles of this (r)evolutionary Swiss movement concept and show you how to include those principles into your ballet practice to challenge your technique and your understanding of your body in motion. The goal is to refine one's own perception and awarness of movement in order to dance with more ease and with a lower risk of injury!

Before introducing specific Cantienica® exercises, which will prepare you for the ballet exercises on the floor, at the barre and in the center, you'll learn about some anatomy basics for a better understanding of your own body. Furthermore, selected exercises for your feet will show you how to correct any deformities, bowlegs and knock knees and how to stabilize hyper flexible feet or legs.

MOVEMENT & BODYWORK 

Six Upcoming Workshops Until Spring for non-dancers and dancers where you learn to sense your experience from the inside.

If you are eager to try out something new and meet people, you should come and visit us at the beautiful Body Power and Posture studio in Munsbach, only 10 minutes from Kirchberg.

The classes and workshops are designed to offer a place of calmness and an opportunity to recharge your energy. Moving through space, to music or in silence - alone or together, we stimulate our body awareness and reconnect to our body. We improve flexibility, mobility and stability through simple exercises that are strongly influenced by various somatic practices. No dance experience is required, only the love for movement and the desire to sense your experience from the inside.
