 SOME OF OUR PRACTICES

YOGA gets the energy body moving, and the energy body is the source of creativity. When we take new and expansive shapes with the body we are influenced to take new and expansive shapes with the mind.'- A. Cushman

Practicing yoga unblocks the energy channels in the body and leads to greater life force, vitality and clarity of mind. The more mental clarity and aliveness you have, the greater your openness to the world becomes.

PRANAYAMA releases us from any unproductive fixations on stubborn problems. By breathing effectively and fully using the breath through yogic techniques, we feel more energised, more relaxed and healthier. By awakening prana in the body we bring the free flow of inspiration.

& MINDFULNESS 

Learn different mindfulness practices and ancient techniques guided within various traditions, such as the ancient medicine wheel of the Peruvian Andes

and the Tibetan tradition.

 
 
 

TETE-A-TETE is a participatory performance, an intimate 1-hour conversation through drawing on your own skin. There is only one rule - no words. The drawing tools: eco-cosmetic pencils. 

Within Tete-a-Tete new modes of language, based on intuition, silence, imagination and sensibility are being awakened.

DAY COLLECTIVE

 

DAY Collective is an artistic duo consisting of Dorota Radzimirska and Yulia Ratman based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Their artistic research involves (participatory) performances and tactile forms. It engages with relations between people as well as people and their environment in modern societies, characterised by lack of trust, categorisation, and disconnection from nature and from themselves.

They see how these phenomena manifest through

the manner of language and representation. By applying body movement, meditation, abstraction and silence in their works the pre-constructed behaviours and beliefs dissolve. In the created environment, what usually occurs is a relaxation of body and mind and a new embodied experience. In this way, intuition, sensibility, and feeling of connection open up.

IVA, YOGA & THE ARTS

 

Iva Buzhashka is an art historian, yoga teacher, arts & mindfulness educator. She studied arts and culture in Rome, Copenhagen and Leiden, and investigates arts as a space of transformation, and addresses topics, such as embodiment, constitution of subjectivity, identity and agency. Years of yoga practice in Amsterdam led Iva to a journey in Guatemala, and consequently to completing a yoga teacher training in the Sacred Valley of Peru. Since then, Iva has been teaching in different parts of the world (Peru, Croatia, Morocco, Sri Lanka, Spain). She is currently a yoga, mindfulness and pranayama teacher online and at SHA Wellness Clinic in Spain. Through embodiment practices she guides her students on a transformational journey inwards and helps them connect to their true being.

TESTIMONIALS

"Tete-a-Tete seeks to remove one's alienation to one's own body by removing speech and allowing only the skin as one's only canvas to communicate. What it achieves is the realisation that what one may have drawn onto one's body is something ethereal, unable to be expressed after all in any other way, which begs the question of how limited are we truly when we rely only on the conscious effort of speaking to express our soul."

 

- Tiffany Salud for the performance Tete-a-Tete by DAY Collective

"I was taking classes with Iva during my stay at Dreamsea Mediterranean, and something I love about her classes is that she provides a safe space for her students during and after the practice, so everyone is able to share how they felt during the class and what did the practice arise in them. I think it is very enriching. She is also very adaptable and flexible as she can sense very well the mood in the class, if people feel like softly flowing on the mat or the energy is more hectic, she will rearrange what she had in mind and adapt to the class. And if to all of that you just add her sweetness it’s just a joy to take a class with Iva anytime".

- Teresa Fernandez Gil, Journalist & Writer, Mallorca/Berlin, for Iva's Yoga Classes
