Warm up: Stretching and breathing to enhance concentration prepares 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 states that will be encountered while whirling.
Whirling: In this stage of the process, participants will continue to develop their physical, emotional, and mental awareness through the practice of whirling. The process begins with a vertical orientation, and as participants progress, they will engage in repetitive movements on both vertical and horizontal planes. This step is designed to help participants become more attuned to their perception of space and their own physical bodies, leading to an improvement in overall awareness. It may also challenge participants to confront unfamiliar or unusual conditions, but by embracing the unknown, they will expand their awareness and ability to conserve bodily energy.

*If a participant cannot join on Friday, but wishes to join on Saturday or Sunday, they need to take a one on one session with Ziya Azazi beforehand. More information below.
The workshop content and given instructions are interconnected. Therefore, it is highly recommended that participants take part in all three days to experience the real goal of the journey throughout the workshop.
Friday session is essential to prepare the participants for Saturday and Sunday. This means that if a participant is willing to join after Friday, they need to take a one to one session with Ziya Azazi to be ready to join the rest of the group on the following days of the workshop. The one to one session will need a separate registration at a separate cost.
