Tao’s Center is happy to present a unique Gaga & Yoga workshop in the island of Paros, Greece.
Gaga & Yoga is a special opportunity to experience movement using two systems – Gaga as developed by Ohad Naharin & Yoga taught by Ouvi Lifshitz – that offer methods in which awareness emerges naturally through movement.
Gaga is a new way of gaining knowledge and self-awareness through your body, developed by Ohad Naharin. The Gaga sessions will be led by Ohad Fishof, an interdisciplinary artist working in the fields of sound, dance, performance, and visual art. He is a long term collaborator with Batsheva Dance Company and has worked closely with choreographer Ohad Naharin. Read more about Ohad Fishof in his teacher page.
Yoga by Ouvi Lifshitz is a methodological practice without a method. Being one of Israel’s leading yoga teachers, she teaches yoga practice in an organized-methodological way without belonging to any particular school of yoga. For more about Ouvi Lifshitz check her teacher page.
The 5-day workshop daily schedule includes morning yoga practice, noon & afternoon Gaga sessions, evening meditation, breakfast, lunch and free Island time. On June 18th, 20:00, an open Gaga Intro will take place, free of charge.
More about the workshop content
Gaga provides a framework for discovering and strengthening your body and adding flexibility, stamina, and agility while lightening the senses and imagination. Gaga raises awareness of physical weaknesses, awakens numb areas, exposes physical fixations, and offers ways for their elimination. The work improves instinctive movement and connects conscious and unconscious movement, and it allows for an experience of freedom and pleasure in a simple way, in a pleasant space, in comfortable clothes, accompanied by music, each person with himself and others.
“We become more aware of our form. We connect to the sense of the endlessness of possibilities. We explore multi-dimensional movement; we enjoy the burning sensation in our muscles, we are ready to snap, we are aware of our explosive power and sometimes we use it. We change our movement habits by finding new ones. We go beyond our familiar limits. We can be calm and alert at once.” Ohad Naharin
Every method of Yoga is the result of particular insights therefore limited by the founder’s own awareness and individual thoughts. But yoga – as a “tradition of freedom” – calls upon each practicing individual to form their own perspective and to develop their unique practice.
Ouvi Lifshitz, an established Vinyasa yoga teacher living and working in Israel, teaches practice based on five principles: Asana & Vinyasa, Compensation, Target position, Numbers. These provide a framework in which physical, mental and spiritual practices are not confined to someone else’s understanding but rather gives the practitioners the freedom of finding their own way.
