Shaking Our Habits and Gaga
An invitation to go on a journey to deepen our body awareness and open an endless range of possibilities.
30-40 minute sessions of Gaga/people, movement research and group meetings.
Sessions will be live-streamed via ZOOM application until we can meet in the physical space again.
How to support Adi’s work
In this sensitive period I offer DONATION-BASED classes online.
You are more than welcome to decide how much you can donate in order to support my work in this period of physical distance.
As an independent dancer, choreographer and Gaga teacher I lost the ability to make a living during the COVID-19 period as all my work has been canceled. At the same time, I am grateful to discover the online teaching possibility until I can work and meet you all in the physical space again... Hopefully soon!
More about “Shaking Our Habits” and Gaga
This moment is an opportunity to deepen our awareness to the world around us while connecting to the world inside our bodies. Being more in our bodies allows us to be more present in the world.
Breaking our habits, opening our senses and using our imagination can open a new range of qualities and possibilities to move and live with.
In classes we will connect to our playfulness and curiosity to explore various multi-layered tasks combining different qualities, volumes, speeds. We will challenge ourselves to leave the comfort zone, reach moments of effort within our individual body limits.
In addition to the individual physical work I realised that another important element needed now is the sense of togetherness, the group energy, a community.
Many of the Warsaw Gaga participants mentioned missing the group regarding the physical practice itself but also a wish to chat, share questions, thoughts, inspiration, music, poems etc.
This led me to propose few kinds of meetings:
1. Gaga/people classes - a framework for users to connect to their bodies and imaginations, experience physical sensations, improve their flexibility and stamina, exercise their agility and explosive power, and enjoy the pleasure of movement. Gaga's movement language is developed by Ohad Naharin, house choreographer of Batsheva Dance Company, and constantly evolving. Learn more about Gaga here: www.gagapeople.com
2. “Shaking Our Habits” movement research classes with a focus on certain elements: breaking our own habits, using our imagination, deepening our awareness to our body - the space inside us and connecting to the world around us and beyond the familiar zone of sight.
3. Group meetings following “Shaking Our Habits” classes - a space to meet and chat around a topic from the research, share experiences, sensations, questions, thoughts, inspiration, poems, music, in connection to the practice. Also a space t boring up other issues such need for support etc.
