I'm passionate about creating spaces for authentic connections. Discovering Contact Improv 2 years ago was a transformative experience, empowering and freeing me in profound ways. In my ImproVibes classes, we blend embodied movement, play, and contact, inviting dancers of all levels to explore the joy of flow and co-creation. Join me for a transformative, sweaty experience that will leave you smiling. Let's dance, connect, and embark on a unique journey of self-discovery together
As a half-Swiss and half-Mexican, I combine rational thinking with traditional shamanic rituals to create healing spaces for people to live a holistic life filled with love and joy. As a sound therapist, I use singing bowls, chimes, and other mystical instruments to create healing vibrations that harmonize the body, mind and spirit. This technique is the most effective way to not only understand, but also feel that you are energy.
Movement artist, Dj, bioconstructor, permaculture lover living in puerto escondido. I have explored different movement dísciplines like gymnastics, calisthenics, parkour, tricking, ido portal, yoga and have come up with my own system, I call it vital flow. Vital flow brings you to the essence of movement which is connecting with your own body through different elements like coordination, rhythm, progressions and self expression. Vital flow has allowed me to expand my selfception and understand how muscles, articulations work alone and together in order to unlock new movements and skills.
