Current timings of pandemic brought us to experience collective trauma. Many of us have experienced some sort of traumatic experiences that are still unreleased and stuck in our bodies; a response to those things usually is to go into a shutdown mode. Loss of connection also includes losing connection with our bodies, loss of awareness, difficulty to stay present, numbness with our emotions and feelings, loss of creativity or even ability to use our imagination
Artist Živilė Virkutytė is looking for 8 to 10 participants to participate in online yoga sessions for 6 weeks. Sessions will happen twice a week and will continue strictly according to schedule. Twice a month group will have additional meetings online, sharing the experience of the, discussing and creating in a safe environment. Through these sessions group will explore full body awareness, yoga philosophy, breath, movement and presence to everything that arises. Group will also play with creative impulses that arise when participant are present with anything that comes in a moment. We will document and use those creative instincts for further creation.
Agreement will be given to sign prior to the sessions.
