All we that inhabit this "developed world" live in an environment of competitiveness, stress, hurry, traffic, noise, tension and responsibility. This pressure plunges us in a delicate balance where the organism is overburdened, tense, blocked, almost without time to recover, plunging us in stress, a low physical and intellectual performance, the difficulty for attention and concentration and the emotional discomfort. This rhythm leads us to live in a way completely external to out body, making our organism's claims and emotions silent to avoid them distorting out agenda.

We need to get back in our daily life a space for stopping and going into our personal space, without paying attention to external requests.

This TALLER DE CONCIENCIA CORPORAL (BODY CONSCIENCE WORKSHOP) is above all a space to recover the dialog with our body, to learn to hear it to recover the balance and the harmony in our lives. For this purpose we will use tools like yoga, chi-kung, body expression and techniques for relaxing and breathing, creating an internal space for listening and understanding, which is meditation.

Music will also come with us in this trip (music of the world - Africa, India, Turkey, the Far East -, classical music, instrumental, etc) to move the body but also to connect with calmness by feeling the music in our body to achieve relaxation and silence from it.

We propose a space of active health where gestate the conditions for a healthy life. It is about becoming aware of our body through movement, breath and concentration, by respecting our own rhythm, our limits, without forcing, from the hearing and the respect.

By travelling the geography of our body, we will relax tensions, we will free energy block and we will leave aside anxiety to recover our internal calm.

Out health is a system in permanent balance. If we want to improve it, we need to dedicate time, from the compromise and perseverance. As a result this workshop is conceived for all the academic year, in sessions of one hour twice a week.
