Dance for Health (60+)
Dance for Health is based on bodywork, the principles of the meridians (Traditional Chinese Medicine) and free dance. These elements support the journey to our self and help to listen more closely to our “inner song”. To let our “true inner self” dance is a direct way to activate our personal inner strength, potentials and healing powers.
Dance for Health
Dance for Health is based on the five phases of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and combines elements of dance and bodywork. The balance activated by dance fosters, in combination with other techniques like meditation and breathing technique, energetic flow and activates our personal inner strength, potentials and healing powers.
The 6th Element
In The 6th Element, the five elements of Chinese philosophy are intertwined with the Goddesses expressed in Hinduism and Yoga. We will observe which energies are moving and where they meet in a space of similarity and synergy. Every day, a Chinese element will invite a Hindu deity to dialogue through dance and its energies open the space for reflection.

Dance for Health
Fabiana's long-standing experience in dance, her studies of Kinesiology and Holistic Breathing Technique lead to the development of her own " technique – "Dance for Health. This unprecedented system has the goal to help people become more aware of themselves. Dance for Health is energetic work combining elements of dance and body work. Various techniques from meditation, breathing techniques, dance, Touch for Health and many more are used to stimulate energy and help getting in touch with our inherent strengths and potentials.
Dance – Nature – Culture
Fabiana's growing interest in the healing methods of the Quetchuas Aymaras (descendants of the Inkas) in her home country, led to regular visits in North Argentina, where she could deepen her connection to her roots. The inseparable connection of this culture with her surrounding brought her to invite more and more people to dance at pristine places, in the midst of nature. This led to a new series of week seminars, not just in Argentina but also in Hawaii and India bringing participants to a natural stage setting, such as beaches, mountains, deserts and rivers facilitating the strengthening of the connection to this source.
