Mindful Movement & Community Connection at NexUs Culture Nepal
29th April 9am-11am
Mindful movement is to gently move the body with conscious, refreshing movements. The facilitation process brings in mindfulness. It is similar to Tai Chi, yet more of a soft dance. It is between yoga and dance.
This program is designed as a workshop that incorporates a gentle activity where people can move their bodies and get a little exercise.
The moves bring in awareness of the body and mindfulness in life. Participants feel more energized, refreshed and focused.
This will be a 2 hour session with 1 hour of dance and the rest of the time is to build community with tea, coffee and muffins.
Check out this Video for an example of the class:
This program can also be great for team building!

Or perhaps it is the other way around, her obsessions compel her to record sound. With sound she seeks to address alterity.

She is co-founder of Brown Planet Productions, an independent multimedia documentary house based in Chicago, with experimental filmmaker, Carlos Javier Ortiz.
