The classes will focus on the discipline of Acrobatic Movement and how to take a healthy approach to this intense training.
Mimbre is a female-led company creating nuanced, breath-taking and highly-skilled acrobatic theatre. We use circus and dance innovatively as a physical language to illuminate human connections and promote a positive image of women.

In these morning classes we will teach a range of specialised acrobatics movements and techniques from Mimbre’s repertoire of tricks and styles, including fluid movements along the floor and upside-down shapes (handstands, headstands and other figures).

Each day will start with a full physical warm-up, which will cover agility and stamina training, along with strengthening and injury prevention exercises, followed by individual acrobatics techniques.
We will also look at creative and innovative approaches to choreographing acrobatics, building up to creating small choreographic sequences with the material learnt and explore how to keep the complicity between the participants despite not using physical contact with each other.
We are very inclusive and can adapt the movements to anyone’s ability. We’re very experienced in approaching physical limits (injury, disability, body type) as creative springboards instead of stopping points, using restrictions as tools to come up with new and original ways of working.

With an artistic voice that is physical and accessible, Mimbre build relationships with broad, non-traditional audiences and participants, creating unexpected moments in unusual spaces and reclaiming some beauty within the urban environment.
Our performances and participation programme reach beyond social, financial and cultural boundaries and find fresh ways to engage, encourage and inspire people, showing that the impossible can be possible on a local, national and international level.

Alethia will lead a highly physical workshop that draws from various movement styles and practices to explore multiplicity in physicality, musicality, dynamics, and flow.

To begin, participants will be led through movement patterns and improvisational exploration to develop awareness, strength, and mobility through the whole body, to encourage flow and dynamic shifts through more complex movements. The workshop will build into set standing, travelling, and floor work material, and will end with working with these various elements through an accumulative phrase.

Throughout, Alethia will encourage participants to keep aware of their own individuality; using given material as a framework to develop their own way of moving, and explore different movement possibilities to incorporate into their own practice.

It is now scientifically proven that Therapeutic Sound has a lot of potential to resonate with our own energy system on all levels of being: physically mentally and spiritually.
It can transform negativity into positivity and promote a state of wellbeing and the stimulation of dormant energies.
In sound therapy the participant becomes the focus of the session, the therapist facilitates an intention set at the beginning of the session.
Sound can help to dissolve heavy and stacked energies in the body, it can also be very beneficial to whom suffer from: chronic pain, stress, self esteem challenges, life transitions, anxiety, depression, limiting beliefs, conflict, spiritual stagnation. In most of the cases sound induces deep relaxation and guiding participants into a dimension away from time and space as a result one will feel that time has passed really quickly even though they might have experienced a full hour session.
Your body temperature will probably drop when you begin to rest so wear comfortable, warm clothing. Please bring your own blankets, pillows if you wish., and your own yoga mat.
No meditation or sound bath experience required!
