The alchemical expression of his approach is between sensitivity and intensity, and manifests through some sort of poetical meaning when presented together with the peculiar musical selections of his Waves. 
Intuitive and discrete, Sabine's presence inspires sensitive and transformative movement in her dances.

PEDRO PAZ

I am a dancer and researcher in the field of ​​Conscious Movement, Contact and Improvisation, dedicating myself to dance since I was a child. I was trained in classical and contemporary dance techniques by the National Conservatory and worked with independent companies and groups. I directed projects and artistic residencies, as well as retreats, workshops and meetings, having today about twenty years of professional experience as a teacher and choreographer.

I am focused on the theme "Self Awareness towards the Collective Energy Field", a research extended to the public for several years as Reconnect Dance. The vision of this work is to become aware of the body and its movement, through simple dynamics accessible to all, which enable expression and creativity.

I believe, through a lot of evidence, that dancing liberates oneself and promotes self-confidence, awakening the will and the curiosity to interact, thus flourishing our potential to be... whole, fluid, with spontaneity and focus... Presence.

Virgílio

Virgílio Beatriz is an enthusiast of self discovery and a Retreat and Workshop facilitator in the human development area. Since 2009, he has facilitated more than 100 Workshops / Retreats in Portugal, and also in Brazil, India and Czech Republic.

Since then, he offers a deep space to explore the realms of conscious movement and voice activation.

DELIA

Delia has been on the path of self-discovery from an early age, diving into the depths of Eastern philosophies, including Buddhism, Tantra, Yoga and Ayurveda. She took her first yoga asana class in 1999, at a Sivananda yoga school in South Africa. The effect it had was profound, like nothing she had ever experienced. She felt spacious, elated, in love and blissful. Never having been drawn to yoga for the physical benefits, she was always attracted to the spiritual aspect, and after her first class, she knew that connection to something greater than herself could be found through the body. As some say… “Your body is the doorway to your spiritual awakening”

 

The practice of Yoga, Tantra and Ayurveda continues to transform Delia’s perception of life. Intrigued at how these paths help to improve your relationship with your body and how this affects your relationship with the world around you, she continues to dive deep into these practises and finds great joy in sharing them with those around her.
