Clowning Retreat

9th to 10th February 2023, by Nicolas Mahnich

Being a clown, in a way, is playing with what is here.

This game can be expressed in many different ways: Movement, dance, eye contact, sound, speech, singing…

Playing and being, while keeping it light.
Whatever comes out of you, however it comes out, why it comes out. The result is already part of the past, and what we want is to live the present.

What are you feeling within yourself, what comes out?

Just allow yourself to be.

Live the moment, learning to expose yourself to yourself, and while doing so, exposing to the other what they are, and what is alive within them.3:32 AM

Rates:

  • For the teachers: conscious free-will pricing
  • For the Yoga Center: 50 CHF (25 CHF / day)

Circlesongs Lab

From February 7th to 11th, by Nicolas Mahnich

Labs are space-times of exploration around collective improvised singing that lead to intensive work. We go through the process of kneading music with our voices, sometimes to contemplate it from global point of view, sometimes to dissect all its concepts and details.

An invitation to enrich our awareness and understanding of music, nourishing our improvs and the way we live them.

Dates: Monday February 7th at 11am to Friday February 11th at 1:30pm

Free, conscious price: no fixed price. You can give or not give anything (or exchange a service or goods), knowing that your presence and enthusiasm are already quite a gift.

Conditions: in spite of the free price, we have to ask for a minimal contribution to cover lodging (dormitory accommodation is included). That amount is 75€ for the whole week, paid in advance, which will also book your spot in the workshop.

Food: The place is equipped with a complete kitchen. The best thing would be to join our food and make cooking teams in shifts to manage everyone’s meals, but we can function otherwise, especially for special diets. To get supplies, you can find a grocery store in the village, and supermarkets 15 minutes away by car.

Accommodation: there is room for everyone on site, the practice room will serve as a large dormitory with mattresses on the floor (remember to bring your sheets). If the idea of a dorm doesn’t suit you, guest rooms are available on site. Contact ViaYoga directly.

Winter Dances

January 7th – 9th, by Urs Stauffer

During this workshop, I will offer a space in which our winter dances may be born. The location is ideal for a residential workshop and invites us to return within ourselves, as well as a opening out to those around us. We will explore simple structures in order to approach our authenticity in movement and share it with our dance partners.

I will mainly draw from my experiences with Anna Halprin, Steve Paxton and Lisa Nelson, three pioneers of improvised dance. with whom I had the privilege to practice for some time. I will also offer tools from BMC (Body-Mind Centering) to refine our presence towards ourselves, others and the environment.

Dates: From Friday January 7th at 2pm to Sunday January 9th at 2pm

Prix: 230 CHF if reserved before December 1st, otherwise 250 CHF

Lodging: The practice space is also a guest house, so it is possible to sleep there on mattresses on the floor. Just bring a sleeping bag / bedding. Price: 25 CHF per night. This includes access to showers, kitchen, garden, cat, etc.

Food: Community kitchen. More details on the facebook page.

Voice and Movement

November 19th to 21st, by Lisa Tatin

This course is intended for anyone with an interest in the voice, no prerequisites are necessary. It is structured in 3 phases:

Phase 1: Collective warm-up, based on gentle stretching, exercises to become aware of the elements necessary for vocal support (diaphragm, intercostals, jaw in particular) and finally breathing exercises.

Phase 2: Involves warming the voice in a group by associating it with movement. Participants gain confidence and discover their vocal range. In this phase, if the number of participants allows it, I try to be able to hear each person in order to guide them in a personalized way. 

Phase 3: During the second day, we try to create improvisational situations with the whole group and I make sure to guide each person in their vocal research in order to find ease and pleasure in the voice and the body.

Dates: From Friday 19 November at 18:00 to Sunday 21 at 18:00.

Price: 250 CHF (233 euros), to be paid in advance if you want to book your spot

Lodging: The workshop space is also a bed and breakfast, so you can sleep on the floor in the yoga room for 25 CHF (23 euros) a night. We provide mats and blankets, but please bring a liner, sheet or sleeping bag. In both cases, you will have access to showers, toilets, kitchen, garden, cat, etc.

Food: Community kitchen. More details on the facebook page.
