·      Intentional Yoga Timor-Leste Workshops
Instructor: Ahimsa-ka Satya
26 December 2016 – 15 January 2017

Description:
This open yoga workshop will cultivate, nourish, and stimulate the self-practice of yoga.  All yoga classes will be focused on inward investigation and cultivating awareness.  The goal may be the same, though the methods can be different.  Various classes will cover different aspects of the system of yoga.

Early morning "Ashtanga Mysore" classes are mixed with regular morning classes as both focus on lengthening and strengthening the physical body with a sequence that can be personally modified.  The special classes go deeper and allow more time to focus on particular aspects of yoga asana.  Late afternoon classes depend on student's requests and can go into either a yin practice, pranayama, and/or meditation.  For example, when you want your yoga practice to benefit your diving you may request more pranayama to deepen and lengthen the breath.  If your focus is to enhance your running practice you may prefer to do a yin practice for your joints.

Whatever your intentions are in life, if you feel good in your body it will probably be easier to succeed.  That is where yoga comes in. Yoga starts with creating awareness, internal communication.  The more regular your practice, the faster you will reap the benefits.

Pricing:
Depending on your time and availability you can opt for the drop-in rate, or purchase a multiple class card (valid for 2 months) that will allow you to take 24 classes and that can be used for any class (1.5 or 2 hour) between December 26, 2016 and January 15, 2017.

Drop-in for any 1.5 hour classes = $15.
Drop-in for 2 hour classes = $20.
Purchase a $200 card between 26-31 December to receive 24 classes (instead of 20) to use between 26 December, 2016 and 15 January, 2017.  This card is valid for ALL classes, regardless of class duration.

Weekday morning classes remain drop-in.
ALL other classes require 24 hour advance pre-registration via email.

Dili Wellness is happy to welcome Australian dancer Colin Sneesby! Colin will be teaching two dance workshops while he is visiting. These classes are suitable to beginners and first time dancers.
Register in advance if you wish to participate: diliwellness@gmail.com.

Movement Exploration & Contact Improvisation for Parents & Kids
Saturday 19 November
3:30-4:45pm, $20 for 1 parent and 1 child, $5 for additional child
We carry within us the entire evolutionary history of our species. Nature is conservative. She builds on patterns and rarely throws anything away. From the single cell that first pulsed in the primordial ooze to the complex acrobatics of the primate, it all exists stored in our anatomy and expressed in our movements. Come on a journey of exploration as we use movement to explore our evolution, and evolution to explore our movements.

Contact Improvisation & The Feet
Sunday 20 November
6:15-7:45pm, $15
Footwork is important for Contact Improvisation, but the skills learnt are transferable to many other sports, martial arts, and dance forms. This session will explore the obvious, but often overlooked, point of connection to the ground. Responsive, sensitive, articulate feet allow you to rapidly adjust to the fast changes in weight and direction that can occur in Contact Improvisation. We will look at ways to develop the listening capacity and strength of the feet. The class will include drills, games, and investigations gathered from years of classical ballet and martial arts training.



Colin Sneesby started Contact Improvisation when Rinske Ginsberg was using it as the basis of actor movement training at the Victoria College of the Arts in Melbourne, Australia in 1989. He went on to have a twenty year performing career which included working as a dancer, actor and puppeteer. Despite being distracted by many other things he continues to explore the form. Some of the things that have distracted Colin have been: various martial arts, strength training, yoga, stretch therapy, rewilding and other aspects of the burgeoning movement culture. Colin has taught Contact Improvisation at NICA, the National Institute of Circus Arts, a professional tertiary training school for the circus arts, and other tertiary dance and theatre courses, and loves teaching beginners.
