Workshop – Songs from far away
By learning the harmonic language of our ancestors, we will connect to our musical roots and create a space resonating within us. The songs are ceremonial and solemn, but equally secular and current. Even if you don’t understand the language, you will feel it. You will learn songs from Georgia and Corsica – some of these are more than two thousand years old and have been passed down from generation to generation, slowly shaped into the gems they are now. Everything is learned by ear, so no music skills or previous experience needed – come and learn some old songs!

Workshop – Listening through singing
You will be lead through a set of improvisations to find a way into a more attentive listening and a free and explorative voice. We will create songs that have never been heard before, and that will never be repeated again. The songs of the moment. We will work with finding our place within the harmony and at the same time finding our individual paths in the improvisations. No music skills or previous experience needed – come and sing the Now!

Josephin has been practicing and teaching yoga nidra for many years, and has a direct yet gentle way to guide you into a deep sense of rest. Come experience something beyond the extraordinary, where NOTHING is asked of you, not even paying attention – with Josephin

Workshop: Yoga – Goddess Tara; the sound of OM
A therapeutic class involving asana, yoga therapy balls, pranayama and yoga nidra to connect with the second Mahavidya (The 10 Great Goddesses) Tara. Tara is the sound of OM, the first vibration before creation arises. In essence, Tara embodies the energy to listen. By cultivating awareness of our inner monologue, Tara’s presence becomes palpable. She guides us across the sea of human experience, landing in something divine – with Josephin

Workshop: The Big Blowout – A Whirlwind of Practices
This is rock n’ roll baby, our signature practice that encompasses it all – movement in all directions, the sweet fruits of asana, breathing to get closer to life, and then a lavishing rest to top of the cake.

Workshop: Yoga – Move like a ninja; fantastic feet!
Every time you set your foot on the ground it’s like kissing the Earth, have you every thought about that? The connection between you and the ground below hold magnificent power, yet often we are not so aware of the impact our feet are doing. Come for a class where we will get into a deeper awareness of our feet, putting into an asana practice where we can learn to be more gentle and more confident when it comes to stepping forward, back and landing after a jump. – with Josephin (we have a maximum of 40 balls, so unless you can provide more balls we cannot be more than 40.. maybe that’s not an issue but I just wanted to flag it)

Johan Nilsson

Johan is an explorer of natural sciences and art. He’s a trained gardener and teacher in Biodynamic farming, gardening and Permaculturdesign These are a great source of inspiration for him due to its deep relationship with the natural world, alternative methods and plant forces. In dance and improvisation, he experiences the same fascination as when he was a child playing in the forest – in contact with nature – a world full of imagination and playfulness! 

His movement background includes Capoeira, African Dance, World Dance and fire spinning, but his interest deepened when he first discovered Contact Improvisation in 2004, with his main inspiration coming from Måns Erlandsson and Malin Anclair, Stockholm/Sweden. Since then, Johan has been participating as a teacher and performer in several projects, festivals and dance events throughout Europe, India and China.

Janni Popp

Janni Popp is facilitating movement practices with the intention of guiding participants into a state of freedom and authenticity. She is curious about the living experience of the human body and has been teaching movements in more than 10 years in different constellations and contexts. She did her first yoga teacher training in 2018 and has recently gained her authorization as a physiotherapist.

Workshop – Embodied Yin: The River of You
In this soft practice you are invited to lean into the stream floating underneath your skin. To trace and follow breath and movements as they flow through you, and follow this river through its ebbs and flows. It will be a journey of intuitive movements and few asanas, where you are guided to move in relation to your body-heart-mind and discover the river of you, just as it moves; moment by moment. (Location: somewhere where you can see the river… in the “old” shala or on the terrasse from there).

Workshop – Myofascial Release: Ocean Body
In this practice you are invited to simply BE whilst tracing and moving with the subtle streams rivering through your inner ocean. Through myofascial release (using tennisballs), somatics and intuitive movements, we invite what is stuck to be moved and through that increase the streams of blood and fluids. Our fascias are a liquid web weaving through all the parts of our bodies; it’s woven through and around our muscles, bones and organs – separating and connecting, and allowing all the tissues to slide and glide.

Workshop – Embodied Yin: Inner Sky
This will not be a typical yin-practise, but a journey through somatics, intuitive movements and yin-asanas. We will dive into the inner landscape of our lungs and through that connect to and become the boundary-less element of air.

Prune & David Poznic

PRUNE POZNIC has worked closely with the creators of Wutao and Song of the Breath for over a decade, and has earned the advanced level “Professeure” certification. She taught for years in Paris and internationally, including workshops in Thailand, Singapore, Canada, Morocco and the US. She now lives and teaches in California. Prune was a professional actress in Paris for years, and her approach works to connect breath and movement to deeper emotional awareness and expressive pathways.

DAVID POZNIC: From living in a Shaolin Kung Fu monestary in the mountains of China to playing Capoeira on the beaches of Brazil, David’s career has led him to coach, teach, and perform in more than 20 countries. With a voracious appetite for learning new skills, David has worked with movement experts around the world for over twenty years, exploring Capoeira, contemporary dance, acrobatics, Alexander Technique, and Wutao, amongst others. He combines a highly technical approach to movement with a deep commitment to breath and physical poetry.

Workshop – Wutao (Prune & David)
The art of Wutao is based on building awareness of the primordial undulatory movement of the spine. This wave gets extended and amplified through the entire body, liberating the natural spirals that exist in all of our movements. As we breathe into this practice, Wutao becomes a dance, a physical calligraphy, in which deeper energetic, emotional, and artistic pathways are revealed.

Workshop – Between Gravity (David)
In this class we explore the wonderful world of crawling and playing on our hands, as well as the spirals, breathwork and techniques that allow us to move freely in any direction and to express ourselves more fully. Combining approaches and techniques from Capoeira, functional movement training, contemporary dance, and acrobatics, participants are led through the fundamentals of crawling, suspending, and playing upside down. The class teaches skills for many diverse forms of inverted movement, from static or moving handstands to handspins and gentle flips and suspensions. Finally, we explore improvisational exercises in which we combine dynamic movement vocabulary with each person’s own personal movement style and goals.

Workshop – Song of the Breath (Prune)
Song Of The Breath explores ways to liberate and play with our breath while connecting to ourselves and to the group, as part of a tribal-style chorus. In this workshop, we will play with elasticity, silence, rhythm, and sounds to reconnect to our natural groove. This allows us to experience more fluidity as we move through the different physical, mental, and emotional experiences that arise with our breath. In doing so, we can more fully access our vitality and inner joy. Let’s groove!

Peter Hunter

Movement was the way out of addiction for Peter Hunter, an exercise-based physiotherapist. Through parkour, yoga and partner acrobatics, he found positive communities to participate in, coming out of a self-destructive life period with graffiti, theft and trouble. Parkour gave Peter’s passion for adventure a constructive playground, and yoga and dance gave him the courage to show himself to the world without being perfect.

Jeppe Skovgaard

I began climbing buildings and doing parkour at night because I couldn’t sleep. I began yoga because parkour made me so strong that I could no longer breathe. I began acroyoga because I lacked a connection with other people and missed a community. I started Rört because I believe that all kinds of movement have specific qualities, that they are all potentially moving and touching – and because I have a burning desire to create a community in Copenhagen across disciplines where we can meet as human beings and inspire, touch, and move each other.

Workshop: Stonefullness – Allowing for Impossibiltiy
A world in which everything is understood is a cold and empty world. It is the mystery, the “what if…”, the cracks in the explanations, that allows the world to breathe and come alive. In this workshop we will humbly dare to explore this border of impossibility in search of the cracks. You are invited to a playful, meditative and aesthetic exploration in dialogue with the most ancient material we have – the actual flesh of the earth – stones. Through the practice of Stonefulness – building impossibly balanced stone sculptures – we will cultivate a felt sense of the edge of possibility and just beyond. It is a practice of balancing opposing forces, of bridging dream and reality, and of allowing for impossibility. Welcome to Stonefulness.

Concert: Childrens Music for Adults
Children have a natural capacity for “childlike wonder”. As adults we sometimes forget, that we live in the very same wondrous world as children, and all we need to do to experience this, is to allow for the wonder to touch us. As a musician Oliver Nani never really left the realm of children’s music with it’s simple and poetic directness. In this concert we’ll go with him on a journey through the major themes of existence, life and death, love and loss, as it appears in his own songwriting, as well as in our common heritage of children’s music. Expect lots of love and community singing. Oliver is joined by Maximillian Fornitz Vording, who plays most instruments known to man.
