Pop Up Experience: Bindful Movement Workshop with Eleanor Bauer This September

Based on the assumption that mind and body are inseparable as long as we are alive, the word “bind” is intended to replace both “mind” and “body” and thereby refer to their mutual bond. Bindful Movement-workshop connects your mind and body and let’s you explore the bindful motion for the rest of the day. Come and join us at Villa Lena this September and tune into bindfulness with Eleanor Bauer!

Experience the Bindful Movement Workshop with Eleanor Bauer

During her residency at Villa Lena, Eleanor will offer Bindful Movement (45 min + 45 min) workshop on 4-12th September.

The workshop honors and hones our sensory, perceptual and sensual embodied intelligences.

The first part of the workshop, Bindful Movement (45 minutes), welcomes all bodies and with all levels of prior physical experience. Intended as a warmpup and/or tuning practice, the workshop combines simple and adaptable exercises and guided improvisations.

Choreo-graphy – the writing of the dance -workshop (45 minutes) follows after Bindful Movement, and you have a chance to deep-dive into the bridges between dancing and writing. Looking at the intersections, gaps, tensions and potential bridges between dancing and writing, you will experiment with all the ways that embodied awareness can be brought into writing, through collective writing strategies, drawing, poetry, prose, and/or music.
