A Unique SOUND JOURNEY Experience – Tuesday, 30th January

A MAGICAL SOUND JOURNEY FOR BODY AND MIND …Find pause, presence and stillness  – the perfect year end elixir!

Vanessa Holliday creates personalized sound journeys ‘If I want to get nearer to truth, disconnect to reconnect, I think in terms of sound energy. Vibration.

If we accept that sound is vibration and we know that vibration touches every part of our physical being, then we understand that sound is heard not only through our ears but through every cell in our bodies. Immerse yourself in the Ancient Sounds of Tibetan Bowls, Gongs and other organic instruments to bring healing and expanded awareness.

Date: Tuesday, 30th January
Time: 7.15pm – 8.45pm
Cost: R150

BRING  a yoga mat, blanket and pillow to lie comfortably on while you let the experience immerse your whole being.

Vanessa, a DJ for over 15 years,  is also an EJ (Energy Jockey), which she describes as her relationship with music, a result of her curiosity to understand the power of sound. This has led to her furthering her studies in sound and developing her sound journeys. As an EJ, she lends deep-tones to smooth melodic and nature inspired music to bring harmony to mind, body and soul. A classic example of her definitive style results in scientific sound experiments made up of digital technology, interlaced with organic sounds and instruments, gongs, Tibetan bowls and solfeggio frequencies. The aim is to insert frequencies that influence the listener’s sound experience. In designing her set for the audience, she aims to inspire and uplift people to create a bridge for reconnection. Vanessa aspires to making ancient sound remedies available to everyone.

Contact Improvisation classes – Wednesdays at 7.15pm

WE ARE EXCITED TO LAUNCH A NEW MOVEMENT CLASS – WEDNESDAYS 7.15 – 8.30PM

(PLEASE NOTE THERE IS NO CI CLASSES ON 13, 20 AND 27TH DECEMBER AS LULU IS PERFORMING DURING THE SEASON)

Contact Improvisation (CI) is a dance technique in which points of physical contact provide the starting point for movement improvisation and exploration.

Its an experimental dance form allowing creativity to flow.

Working with a few basic principles as a guide: giving and receiving weight – understanding the rolling point of contact – working with the laws of physics of momentum – gravity, space, inertia and friction – Contact Improvisation brings you totally present and in honour of every moment, learning to listen with the body.

In the class experience you will learn:

  • the natural body patterns of movement
  • how to spiral in and out of contact – sharing and giving weight
  • to allow play and fun back into your movement

*Regular studio class rates apply

The classes will be taught by Lulu Erasmus (a certified ecstatic awaking dance teacher and performance artist) who is passionate about Contact dance. For her movement is a path to enlightenment … “we learn a lot through free movement in the body as we store a lot of memories and emotions in the body and these can be healed and transformed through movement.”  

Lulu has hosted and guided dance journeys  around the world helping people to align themselves with their greater potential of living in joy love and success.
