Join us in the exploration of breath, touch and fluid movement to deeply nourish yourself in the present moment.
Joel will play live music intended for Musical Hydrotherapy and we recommend you to use the underwater speaker or an external speaker safe for bathrooms or headphones for swimming.
For the Warm Up Dance session find the largest and most quiet room at home, Helena will guide you to bring touch and movement qualities from the water on land (floor), encourage you to be playful and teach you basic principles of aquatic contact improvisation dance and bodywork. You will listen and move to your breath, stretch and loosen your joints during a warm up on land in the first session.
For the following week The Bath Podcast session, find your most private place the bathtub, you will be guided to float in warm water, free from the constraints of gravity, bathing with the sounds. Your body floats unrestricted and expresses what it remembers in a slow and delicate dance. I will subtly guide you on how to amplify your movements and assist in releasing tension. This embodied experience allows your mind to flow into a deeply relaxed state.
Joel produces Wet Sounds, an underwater listening experience that transforms swimming pools into spaces for music, light and performance experienced by entering the water and moving freely below and above the water surface. Water conducts vibrations faster than air. In the water we are weightless, in zero-gravity. We begin our life and perception surrounded by the liquid in the womb, perceiving vibrations and sound before we are born. He has set up the charity Liquid Vibrations which trains in Musical Hydrotherapy. www.newtoy.org
