Tripsichore YOGA presents Art & Beauty (The Future of Vinyasa)
Wed, Apr 5, 2017, 10:00 AM – Sun, Apr 9, 2017, 4:00 PM MYT
Tripsichore is renowned throughout the world for its performances of yoga theatre. This 25 hour program is an opportunity to develop a more profound understanding of vinyasa technique and how to articulate them as art and beauty.
In the morning sessions, we will work really hard to warm up (Tripsichore’s world renowned Sun Salutes and something we call the Giris Sequence) using music that we will be working on in the afternoon.
In the afternoon, we use the yoga we have worked on in the morning to improvise on a theme. What do we do in the improvisation section could be devising variations on standard asanas or it might be about trying to find a yogic way to express certain imagery (e.g. trying to make the legs in an inversion look like the branches of a tree or trying to create “insect” characters by doing variations of tittibhasana).
This isn’t exactly a free for all session, but there are no right or wrong solutions. The constraints we put on the improvising are that the experiments should fit broadly within Tripsichore yoga technique (the moves are accomplished through the use of breath) and they need to depict or express something in particular.
It is expressive, but also highly technical. This is a workshop to really move your practice to a new level. We will be working over 5 days to distil the material into something that looks very good and will work on ways of recording it to make good social media pieces…something you will be proud to have on your homepage…something you are proud to be associated with.
And, how does it relate to yoga? It is very demanding of one’s concentration. In seeking to precisely execute the yoga moves in time to music and with a specific intention, one comes to a rapid understanding of what it is to appreciate the “present moment”. There is a heightening of awareness. There is no putting off of what one is attempting to do until a later time nor is there space to reflect on whether one did well or badly in the execution of a move for the flow of music and movement goes on regardless.
