Aerial yoga:

Aerial yoga: is a mix of yoga, acrobatics, pilates and physical therapy. Our training focuses developing self awareness skills and giving students a wide variety of styles plus fun collaborative creative activities. 

So many benefits:

Aerial is fun and gentle way to get strong, relieve pain and heal the body. Swings support the body’s weight, enhance our range of motion and allow us to stretch deeper and work a greater range of back and core muscles. Aerial offers great therapeutic benefits. We use gravity to decompress the spine, realign the vertebrae, relieve disc and nerve pressure, which causes pain. 

Aerial yoga enriches a student’s yoga practice by bringing body alignment naturally into the poses. The support of the hammock also helps students to play in and achieve difficult poses more easily.

Than, one of the best things about aerial yoga is that you get to go upside-down! In a way that is supported and comfortable. Many of the positions on the aerial yoga swing are like natural inversion therapy- you can release pressure in the spine and let it decompress from stress or any other tightness. It is a sweet release that makes your body feel good. In addition to that, going upside down floods your brain with more blood flow and cerebrospinal fluid which increases the production of neurotransmitters which just makes you FEEL better! it’s an all-natural mood booster!

Most importantly, it’s fun and makes people smile.

 

The training will include:
- Fundamentals of Aerial Yoga

 - Meditation on the cocoon
- Level basic and intermediate postures and sequences
- Restorative practice
- Sequencing a class
- Biomechanics of Aerial Yoga, hands-on adjustments
- Modifications for different populations
- Safety and basic rigging

 


Aerial Inverted Massage

Aerial inverted massage: The Hammock is a perfect tools for deep massage. Whit the support of the hammock the body can be placed in natural effortless stretch and opening which allowed a much deeper access to the tissue to the masseur . When the body is hanging up side down in inversion the spine feels completely release and allowed a full spine decompression.Aerial Inversion therapy helps relieve pressure for the back by stretching the vertebrae. There are a variety of benefits associated with this form of therapy, including the following:

  • Pain relief: The body will feel more pain-free both immediately after use and over time. Inversion therapy can help with back and neck pain, spinal disc pain, joint pain, and even reduces muscle spasms and sciatic discomfort.
  • Increased flexibility: The body will be completely stretched out after Aerial Inverted massage, which will result in more flexibility, better range of motion and better posture.
  • Increased muscle tone and definition: Aerial inverted massage is an effective, low-impact form of exercise, which can help improve muscle tone
  • Increased relaxation: being massaged upside down can be incredibly relaxing both during and after use. Inverted massage have been scientifically proven to relieve stress and promote a general feeling of wellness. Endorphins are released after the therapy, which can also cause a feeling of happiness and can even reduce depression. It will also leave the person feeling more alert and energetic after use.
  • Reduced appearance of varicose veins: Once the circulation is improved through therapy, any varicose veins will be relieved. Varicose veins are caused by polling blood on the veins, but hanging upside down can pull the blood away from the veins and into the rest of the body. 

Sacred Trance Dance & Ecstatic Dance

Sacred trance dance: 

We will explore ancient form of folk dance, revisited and transformed into a global modern language to be used on the dance floor. 

Through continuous rhythm, beautiful repetition of circular movements and choreographic figures, together with a partner will liberate and invigorate the energy within. The dancer will transcends into a trance-like state, much like the trance-inducing movements of the Sufis. In this workshop we’ll experience how movement, dance, drumming and music help us to release anxiety and stress, dissolve sexual blocks and open us up to receive from the heart, by bringing the mind and body into a total state of relaxation and joy. 

Sacred trance dance has physical, psychological and spiritual benefits.  We uses dance, movement, breath work, mindfulness and meditation to induce a state of expanded consciousness.  The benefits include personal and spiritual growth, healing, self-knowledge, and enhanced artistic expression.  Through this process we access healing, inner revelations, insights, creative breakthroughs, heart opening, and a deeper connection to our physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual bodies. 

True liberating experience!!

Share circle

Share circle: 

Sharing Circles are a unique small-group discussion process in which participants (including the leader) share their feelings, experiences, and insights in response to specific, assigned topics. Sharing Circles promote effective communication, trust, and confidentiality.

In every circle we will be using tarot cards and other divinatory deck to have a better insight into what we have shared. 

How to get there:

Rote is a beautiful little island in Indonesia, between Timor and Savu. Despite its remote location there’s plenty to do, making it a wonderful tourist destination. But first, you have to get there!

In order to get to Rote, you’ll first need to fly to Kupang, Timor, from either Jakarta or Bali – from Bali the flight will take around 2 hrs. Once you reach Kupang you can either take an aeroplane from Kupang airport for around 200,000 rupiahs which will take roughly half an hour including boarding time (15 minutes flight time).

Most people would recommend you fly, however if flying isn’t really your thing or you prefer to take things a bit slower, you can transfer to the local ferry port – about 20 minutes away from the airport – and take either a fast or slow ferry to Rote Island. The fast ferry will take roughly two hours, and the slower ferry closer to three or four hours. There’s usually a 10kg luggage allowance on the commercial flights, with surfboards incurring an extra charge of around 150,000 rp.

Once you arrive in Rote it’s likely you’ll need to get a taxi to wherever you’re going, or you can rent a scooter to get around; the roads are generally good quality so are easy to navigate. Rote, much like the rest of Indonesia, is incredibly beautiful and renting a scooter means you’ll be able to take in all the island has to offer at a pace that suits you.
