These series of Contact Improvisation and Chi Gong sessions are additional open classes alongside to the 5th Dance and Being Art project that Vangelis will be facilitating on the 24- 27 February and on the 10-13 March. The open classes are an initiative to share shorter but more regular Dance – Contact Improvisation – and Chi Gong sessions to make this practice more accessible to all.

On Saturday nights Vangelis will be sharing his practice “Embodied Unity” as open Contact Improvisation classes in which he will be integrating healing from chi gong and yoga philosophies. As a main focus we will have the group communication through energy work and dance. Be ready for some serious CI and opening the heart to dance as a whole collective 😀

On some Sunday nights Vangelis will be teaching pure chi gong – Alchemy of 5 elements – for people who wish to delve deeper on energy work and emotioanal rebalancing. We will be focusing on all elements of Taoist tradition (Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, Water) to find emotional stability and ultimate health in the body, mind and spirit. In this sessions we will build sequences that you will be able to learn and practice on your own for personal health and balance.Come to grow the love, understanding and fine communication within a collective context. Chi Gong and Yoga focus more on the self development and personal spiritual growth. Embodied Unity embodies all knowledge and experiences of this life and past lives to integrate and manifest healthy and balanced families.

Everybody is welcome to join with or without experience in any of the disciplines. It is advised to wear comfortable clothes for dancing and remove any accessories (ear rings, rings and necklaces) for not causing any incident to anyone around or to the self.

Vangelis will be guiding you developing all the 10 sessions of CI dance and 7 sessions of chi gong so as to dance and reach ecstatic states as a whole collective group. You will inter-relate and communicate within dance by forming a union of love, respect and bliss. People are welcome to book any sessions separately or as a whole package.
