We apply concepts of physical and energetic anatomy, and Ayurveda and Chinese medicine for the complete understanding of the sequence to be learned.

Students are encouraged to create from the basic sequence once they master it, looking for what each person has to give to the world. There will be a special emphasis on finding each one’s voice, bring in to light what is their contribution to the world and give them tools to apply it in their lessons.

Some of the sessions focus on learning how to hold spaces where the work done by the assistants is profound, such as intensive workshops, retreats and training. The whole process of transformation is always guided with love.

Daily activities based on body expression, simple ancestral rituals and coaching techniques are held, with the aim of opening new paths for the students to reconnect with themselves and find what’s unique in them.

All the tools that will be put into practice during the workshops will be provided in an understandable way so that everyone can use them in their lessons and in their daily life. Some of the practices and meditations take place in Nature to recharge and feel in depth the element with which we work.
