Intro to Alchemy Spinning

Join Raquel Santiago and discover the joy of whirling in this introductory workshop in the practice of Alchemy Spinning as a method of expanding one’s consciousness.

Alchemy Spinning™ combines dance, movement, yoga, breath work, and meditation and is a powerful and yet accessible whirling practice

at the intersection of mindfulness and movement.

Inspired on Sufi Dervishes and other whirling dances of the world, Alchemy Spinning makes the physical, psychological and spiritual benefits of whirling available to everybody. The benefits include:

-Experiencing an expanded state of consciousness
-Becoming more aware, present and embodied
-Discovering your own true power to heal your life
-Unleashing your creativity and your artistic expression
-Awakening joy, inner peace, and compassion towards self & others

We will work on several exercises that combine dance, yoga, breathing and meditation in order to connect deeply with our own bodies, balance the flow of energy in our chakras along our spines, and root ourselves firmly in the Earth, while charging up our energy and opening our hearts. This is the key to avoid and manage dizziness.

We will learn basic whirling techniques and we will create and hold a safe space for the participants to spin at will, but each person is encouraged to spin according to their own needs and feelings, entering and exiting the spinning space as they feel compelled to.

Open to everybody. No previous dance experience is necessary.

Cost: $25 - $40 (sliding scale), $5 discount if registered by 11/19
Date: November 26, 2017, 1:00pm-3:00pm
