This workshop suggests a space for the participants where they can challenge their limits through whirling, stimulate their ability for the thrift of bodily energy, and through these abilities reach their goal movement within their own genre, spending less energy, with a higher level of awareness.

Whirling is not the main objective of this workshop. The greater goal is to improve one’s physical, emotional and mental awareness through whirling and the exercises prior to that. It leads the participants to perceive and accept what is befalling throughout whirling and reach an innovative movement by means of whirling.

The workshop consists of the following steps:

Warm-up: stretching and breathing in order to enhance concentration preparing the body and mind to gain strength to push mental and physical limits.

Awareness: This step includes floor work, body part, and upside-down exercises, basic acrobatics, and improvisation on various levels. It aims to strengthen the awareness of senses and systems in preparation for meeting the unknown arrangements to be encountered while whirling.

Whirling: Further developments of physical, emotional, and mental awareness are to be obtained in this step. Whirling first starts at the vertical level. At the further steps, repetitive movements are to be experienced on both, vertical and horizontal levels. This step helps the participants to feel and record the conditions of their perception of space and body; thus the awareness improves. This is a step where the participants in various aspects confront conditions that are not usual or accustomed. By accepting the unknown, the knowledge concerning awareness and ability for the thrift of bodily energy will expand.
