Workshop

Gaga/People & Somatic Sequencing

Tanja Saban

The empathic body shifts fluidly between different states of being. The deeper we dive into our sensory body the more possibilities are opening up. Becoming aware of and differentiating sensations in the many layers of our body creates room for an organic reorganization of our habitual patterns. We become available for movement while discovering a new range of possibilities in our bodies and connecting to our passion to move. The workshop starts with a Gaga/People class which provides a framework for discovering and strengthening the body, adding flexibility, stamina and agility while stimulating the senses and imagination. The class is followed by somatic sequencing, a deep dive into an exploration of our internal landscapes and anatomy through movement, touch and imagery. The research refines awareness of where and how movement is initiated, how it sequences through the body and orchestrates rhythms and textures. The deep listening into our microcosm enriches our perception and refines our ability to articulate, in small and big gestures.
