Dance for Health
In dialogue with your body
We make life experience in, with and through our body and have a constant exchange between the inner and outer world. Again and again our body sends messages to us about what feels right and what does not. Dance for Health sets out to search for the meaning of these messages and feel them on important levels: the physical, the energetic and the level of thought.
Dance for Health uses dance and techniques from different disciplines, such as meditation, breathing techniques, kinesiology, TCM and many more. Dance for Health takes the Five Elements Teaching from TCM. The contact to our inner strength and the body’s potential is activated in a gentle way.
DfH works on a physical, energetic and mental level. The focus is on dance balance as fundamental tool for harmonising, stimulating and bringing energy into a flow.
Energetic Balance through Dance
Dance balance is based on dance improvisation in connection with the teaching of the five elements in TCM. Dance balance consists of exercises accompanied by music – the connection of rhythm and melody. While the rhythm helps to re-organise the brain, melody aids the opening of the heart chakra. The aim of DfH is the stabilisation of health and the improvement of physical and mental well-being.
