Saturday April 6 & Sunday, April 7. Pulling from the idea of the ideomotor phenomenon that is considered the ‘invisible player’ in an Ouija board game, our curiosity dives into how to train this subconscious “decider” that works at an underlying level of consciousness where we ‘do’ without thinking. In this partnering class we emphasise hyper listening and empathic moving. We question what it means to join a movement journey and to explore manipulation in solidarity, and we explore how to let that ‘animal spirit’ under our skin move (through) us. Concurrently, we use a series of tools and games to help free the mind to be available and to make quick decisions.Find out more »
May Day is Lei Day in Hawai’i! Join our halau - our school of hula - Na Hula Ola Aloha, and celebrate Lei Day through music and dance. Kumu Malia’s hula dancers will make your heart sing!
