Whirling Workshop Series 1: Exploring Sense of Self

February 4, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Learn the fundamentals of turning and how it enables you to find a sense of self and a connection between body, mind, and spirit. Discover the vital balance in the rhythm of your breathing, movement, posture, and concentration. At first, it can take great effort to combine all of these elements in harmony, but with practice, you will learn to whirl indefinitely, relax, and open the heart, body, and mind.
