Moving Bodies Open Hearts 2019

with Alex Svoboda and Alexa Schmid

Next workshop: , 05 May 2019 - 10 May 2019

We invite you to join our annual dancing retreat!

What do we do?

We practice dance meditation — it is both simple and powerful. It brings us back to the body and it lifts our spirit. It helps us connect more fully with our true selves and meet the others with authenticity and compassion.

Where?

Sundance Nature Village in Turkey is an amazing welcoming place hidden away from the overdeveloped touristic areas. We have a great dome to dance in and two beaches to enjoy the sea and the sun.

Teachers

Alex Svoboda and Alexa Rani Schmid have both studied 5Rhythms with Gabrielle Roth, with Anna Halprin, open floor and other schools of movement and awareness.

Together, they bring 20 years of experience of teaching dance meditation.
It is their eighth annual retreat in Turkey.

Cost

Early Bird from till 28th February — €285
Early Bird from 1st March till 1st April — €320
Full from 2nd April till 5th May — €350

Teacher training programme Level 1 – Module 2

with Alex Svoboda

Next workshop: , 25 Mar 2019 - 31 Mar 2019

The Level 1 Teacher Training is the door to our house for new teachers. The year of training is a year of transformation - from the most dedicated followers of the practice into conscious movement teachers, from our favorite partners on the dance floor and friends intoour colleagues and co-owners of our school.

There are three residential modules and additional tasks that require asignificant investment of time and energy between the modules. This programme is a serious challenge! It develops skills needed to be a teacher and also tests our trainees’ ability and determination to teach dance meditation.

Admission requirements

We invite to the teacher training course only those dancers who have been committed to the practice for a sustained period of time. Making a decision about wanting to teach, being impressed by one or two outstanding workshops, would be a mistake. In our case “Fair and softly goes far” has particular relevance.

The first step on the path of becoming a freedomDANCE teacher is studying our school’s curriculum. The following minimum requirements for admission to the Level 1 Teacher Training will give you an idea where to begin:

  • Two years of dance meditation practice
  • A minimum of 180 hours of practice with teachers accredited with ICMTA, Including:
  • A minimum of 2 days of workshops in each of the four categories: freedomDANCE Cycle; Body Map; Polarities (Three Stages - Six Energies Map); It’s Elementary!
  • These hours need to include a minimum of 120 hours of Level 2 or Level 3 practice, of which 60 hours need to be Level 3. Level 2 includes the following three categories: Unity; Synthesis; Lessons. Level 3 includes the following three categories: Open Hearts; Life Line; Juice.
  • The 180 hours need to include one workshop lasting at least 5 days, or two workshops lasting at least 3 days each.

We are happy to help you understand these requirements and also develop a plan of how you can fulfil them if you need additional practice.

Programme Application

If you would like to participate in the course, please let us know by writing to [email protected] We will send you a registration form together with a table to add up your hours of practice as well as other information.

Address: To be announced, Novosibirsk, Russia
