About Gaga and Rebirthing
Gaga and Rebirthing both work with expressing and listening to our bodies. Together a work of movement, breath, sound and silence is created. The flow of emotions, thoughts and bodily sensations become one.
Patterns we carry surface and dissolve. We allow ourselves to discover spontaneity.
The depth and beauty of the techniques enhance our state of being and create a profound journey.
During this 4 day retreat we wish to focus on how we can practice listening to our bodies, and to experience movement in a natural way. We also wish to focus on the acceptance of our asymmetrical aspects, and to allow ourselves to work from a honest place.
We look forward to share this beautiful experience with you here!
Gaga is the movement language that was developed by Ohad Naharin throughout many years, parallel to his work as a choreographer and the artistic director of Batsheva Dance Company.
Gaga is a new way of gaining knowledge and self-awareness through your body.
Gaga raises awareness of physical weaknesses, awakens numb areas, exposes physical fixations, and offers ways for their elimination. The work improves instinctive movement and connects conscious with unconscious movement, and it allows an experience of freedom and pleasure in a simple way, in a pleasant space, in comfortable clothes, accompanied by music, each person with himself and others.
Gaga also works with multi layer tasking, continuous movement (we do not stop moving inside the class) and the ability to listen to our body before instructing it what to do.
Rebirthing is a breathing technique that allows us to be in contact with the deep nature of our being. Breathing is the most basic and important rhythm of life. The process allows us to release our deep tensions and experience unconditional love. When we accept the moment completely we are genuinely free, free from our own cage of limiting concepts.
What may I experience during the Rebirthing session?
During the breathing session many physical, emotional and spiritual reactions may occur: you may cry, laugh, feel sensations of heat or cold, feel vibrations and energetic currents flowing through your body.
Many times you may remember significant events that have influenced you during your course of birth and life.
These are common experiences of people around the world, however each person has his/her unique experience and it’s best to come without expectations at all. Allow this method to guide you through a journey of healing. Keep your heart and mind open to experience whatever comes.
