Yoga for Tango Dancers: how YOGA and TANGO merge and how yoga can refine your tango feel.

This yoga hour can be a nice transition from the (work) day you had to the tango evening, which you will have this evening.

In this yoga workshop for dancers, we will come to elements that can help deepen your body awareness.

It will cover topics such as:
– building up your posture (foot, knee, pelvis, shoulders, neck),
– torsions,
– breath,
– concentration,
– contrast tension and relaxation.

Through deep contact with yourself, the path is laid towards contact with your dance partner. Marieja invites you to join her on this path and experience what yoga can do for you.

Practical:
Feel free to come in your tango clothes, (hopefully not very tight, and no shoes) socks are OK, Marieja will adapt the poses to this if possible. We can use the chairs and benches or whoever wants to bring a mat.
Marieja herself thinks yoga on the mat is best.

We end each class with a relaxation that Marieja will inspire, sitting or lying down, whatever you prefer. And then off to the salon!

Cost per workshop: Euro 7,50. To be paid in cash, please.

Date: 12 January and 2 February 2024 from 19.00h-20.00h. This is fifteen minutes earlier than you are used to from the Friday evening workshop but that is so you have plenty of time to switch from the final relaxation to the salon.
