Danza Yoga con Javier Goikoetxea en Poise

Este viernes el blog está escrito por Javier Goikoetxea. Es un resumen de que ofrece en su curso de Danza Yoga, una nueva colaboración aquí en Poise y un taller que ofrecemos el día 4 de noviembre 2017 a las 10:00 a 14:00 por solo 30€. Va a ser una experiencia única con un yogi bailarín singular. Abajo empiezan sus palabras sobre su curso y un poquito de su CV y experiencia (que envidia me da, la verdad, donde ha estudiado!).

 

Encuentro de Danza Yoga

  1. Descripción general del curso:

Elevando la consciencia a traves de la Danza.
El yoga de la danza es un sistema que ayuda acceder a estados más profundas del ser desarrollando formas de expresión que surgen en sincronía y autenticidad desde uno mismo.

Una magia que nos permite fluir desde nuestra inherente creatividad.

 

  1. Objetivos del curso.

Desarrollar y promover salud y desarrollo personal.

Expandir la consciencia y aumentar las posibilidades de movimiento para una mayor libertad de expresión

Despertar el cuerpo y la mente a los principios universales de movimiento

Estimular la creatividad.

Desarrollo de la atención, la percepción y la sensibilidad.

 

  1. Contenidos:

Una Practica rítmica y progresiva.

A traves de suaves y fluidos movimientos coordinados con la respiración.

Mudra, Asanas, Vinyasas, Pranayama, Bailes, Relajación y Meditación.

 

Trabajaremos también la alineación a través de la Asana.

  1. Cima de la cabeza – coxis
  2. Zona dorsal – brazos
  3. Isquiones – talones (posturas de pie) e Isquiones – suelo (posturas sentadas)
  4. Radiación umbilical (conectando brazos, piernas, cabeza y coxis con el ombligo)

 

Aprenderemos a sincronizar el movimiento con la respiración, de modo que podamos ajustar cada Asana con nuestro propio movimiento corporal. Modular la intensidad que aplicamos a cada postura, de modo que seamos capaces de suprimir la tensión residual e innecesaria de nuestra práctica.

 

Apto para practicantes de yoga, bailarines e incluso quienes no hayan practicado ni yoga ni danza pero que sientan la musica y quieran indagar un poco más en sus posibilidades de movimiento e impulsar su evolución personal.

Por favor, llame al número de arriba, o envía un email a hello@poisepamplona.com, o envía un whatsapp a 638 083 966 si estás interesada. Necesito tener una idea de la cantidad de personas interesadas para poder preparar la comida y la bebida.

 What:

Open Dance is simple. I provide the space, the sound system, the goodies (healthy snacks and homemade cake and some wine and tea and water), and a warm-up so that we can try to avoid pulling a muscle and being sore the next day. I have created a Spotify playlist called Open Dance and everyone in attendance can add a song or two to the list. Then I hit shuffle and we dance. If you haven’t ever been to Poise or seen our space, let me tell you about it. There’s an 80m2 dance space with a special floor to protect your feet and knees, mirrors and high ceilings and NO columns in the middle. There’s a long table and chairs for chatting and for the snacks and drinks. There’s a sofa and lounge chairs to take a breath and look through a magazine. There are two bathrooms, two dressing rooms, and even a shower, if you need it. Open Dance is simply a night for women to just let loose and dance or talk or whatever. No one is watching, there are no prerequisites of dance training or fashion, there is no bar atmosphere even though there will be wine, it is a moment to be alone together. It’s a moment to let off some steam and dance away your problems. Even if you think you can’t dance or it makes you terribly nervous, no one is there to judge you. Wear what you want, dance how you want, eat and drink what you like, give yourself two hours to just let your hair down (or put it up in a bun) and we’ll all be in a safe space, alone together. Open Dance is exactly what you make of it. Come alone or bring some friends. Make some new ones. And, actually, if you want me to help you practice a turn or figure out how to do isolations, let me know and I will. If not, I’ll be doing what you’re doing, dancing out whatever I’ve got going on in my life. Also, there will be no videos or anything; you won’t end up on YouTube, don’t worry. Oh, and I control the lights so that the dance space is darker and can’t be seen from outside. This is a private, women-only dance party. There’s nothing else to it.

Que:

Baile Libre es sencillo. Yo proveo el espacio, el equipo de música, los tentempiés (cosas saludables y bizcocho casero y vino y té y agua), y un calentamiento para prevenir lesiones y agujetas el día siguiente. He creado un playlist en Spotify que se llama Open Dance y cada persona puede añadir una canción o dos. Doy al “play” aleatorio y bailamos. Si nunca has estado en Poise o tampoco has visto fotos del espacio, déjame explicártelo. Hay 80m2 de espacio para bailar con un suelo especial para proteger los pies y rodillas, espejos, techos altos y NO tiene una columna en medio. Hay una mesa larga con sillas para charlar y tomar algo. Hay un sofa y sillones para tomar un descanso, respirar, y ojear una revista. Hay dos baños, dos vestuarios, e incluso una ducha, si te hace falta. Baile Libre es simplemente una noche para que las mujeres podamos dejar nuestras preocupaciones fuera y estar libres y bailar y hablar o lo que sea. No hay nadie mirando, no hay requisitos de formación en el baile ni código de vestimenta, no hay ambiente de bar aunque sí hay vino, es un momento para estar solas juntas. Es un momento para quitar el estrés de encima y bailar hasta que desaparezcan tus problemas. Incluso si piensas que no puedes bailar bien o te pone muy nerviosa, nadie esté allí para juzgarte. Ponte lo que te da la gana, baila como quieras, come y bebe lo que te apetezca, date dos horas para soltar el pelo (o ponerlo en un moño) y estaremos juntas en un espacio seguro, solas juntas. Baile Libre es exactamente lo que tú hagas con la experiencia. Ven sola o con amigas. Haz amigas nuevas. Y, de hecho, si quieres que te ayude a practicar un giro o enseñarte un paso, dime y lo haré. También, no habrá videos ni nada – no acabarás en YouTube, no te preocupes. Y pongo las luces para que el espacio de baile sea más oscuro y no se puede ver desde fuera. Esto es una fiesta de baile privada para mujeres. Así de simple.

Why:

This is what we all sometimes do in the privacy of our homes, dance and let go of whatever is in our minds. What makes this different is that the space is huge, so you don’t have to worry about stubbing your toe on the corner of your dresser, and it provides community as well as privacy. Dancing seems to make a lot of people nervous and vulnerable and so most don’t dance as much as they’d like. Dance happens to be one of the ONLY things that I do that doesn’t make me feel scared and vulnerable. It makes me feel empowered in the best possible way. I think humans have dance embedded in our DNA and that it is one of the most powerful forms of communication, how someone moves. I also think that there aren’t enough opportunities for people to just dance, without a class, just move our bodies however we feel in whatever moment. I wish it were more socially acceptable for people over the age of 8 to dance down the street. It would certainly make my day better if I felt I could. So, even I have my limits of where and when I feel comfortable dancing. So that’s why I created Open Dance, to have that safe space. And I must add, that while I’m sure many men would enjoy it or benefit from it as well, and I’m not a big fan of the division of the sexes, sometimes women just need to get together with women. We all know that it changes the atmosphere. So that’s why only women – so we have two hours of no pressure to be the slightly more polished versions of ourselves that we are everywhere else in our lives.

Porque:

Esto es lo que hacemos todas (y todos) a veces en la intimidad de nuestras casas, bailar y dejar ir lo que está en la mente. Lo que hace esto diferente es que el espacio es enorme, así que no tienes que preocuparte de romper un dedo en una esquina de la cómoda, y provee comunidad además de intimidad. A mi me parece que el baile pone nerviosa y vulnerable a mucha gente y la mayoría no baila cuanto les gustaría. Bailar resulta ser una de las ÚNICAS cosas que hago que no me da miedo ni me hace sentir vulnerable. Me hace sentir poderosa de la mejor manera posible. Pienso que los seres humanos tenemos el baile en nuestra ADN y que es una de las formas más poderosas de comunicar, como se mueve alguien.También pienso que no hay oportunidades suficientes para que la gente simplemente pueda bailar, sin una clase, simplemente movernos exactamente como nos apetezca en cualquier momento. Ojalá que sea más aceptable socialmente para personas mayores a 8 años bailar andando por la calle. Haría mi día mejor si pudiera, sin duda. Pues entonces, también tengo mis limites de donde y cuando me siento cómoda bailando. Por eso he creado Baile Libre, para tener ese espacio seguro. Y tengo que añadir, que aunque estoy segura de que muchos hombres lo disfrutarían o beneficiarían de esto también, y no soy muy fan de segregar las actividades por género, a veces las mujeres necesitamos estar con solo mujeres. Sabemos todas que cambia el ambiente. Por eso, solo mujeres – para que tengamos dos horas sin presión de ser la versión un poco más refinada que sentimos en cualquier otro lugar de la vida.

 

Yes, the space is mine and the idea came from some of my friends and me, but the time that you spend at Open Dance is yours to do with what you like. I hope you come and join me. I hope you feel at home and comfortable. I hope you shake it off for a couple hours and leave lighter in spirit and at least a little bit sweaty. See you Friday at 8pm!!

 

Sí, el espacio es mío y la idea vino de unas amigas y mí, pero el tiempo que pases en Baile Libre es tuyo para hacer lo que más te convenga. Espero que te animes y te unas. Espero que te sientas en casa y cómoda. Espero que te quites la tensión de encima y salgas más ligera de espíritu y al menos un poquito sudada. Nos vemos el viernes a las 20.00!!

Design Comes to Poise

 

 

This weekend we have an enormously exciting new project moving into Poise!

We have a designer studio in residence at Poise!

Kate Mawby, our Vinyasa Flow Yoga Teacher, is also an accomplished knitwear designer and she is going to use a corner of Poise for her creative design studio.

Check out her amazing portfolio on her website: www.katemawby.com

To be honest, I don’t know where to start trying to explain what she does or how excited I am to have her here. Her presence adds a new element of art to Poise and I’m sure I’m going to drive her crazy asking questions and looking over her shoulder while she draws and works. As someone who has always been fascinated by fashion and interior design, it’s a dream come true to have a real professional in these fields sharing our space.

But that’s enough about my creativity-girl-crush on Kate. Now a few questions and answers to introduce her to all of you:

Abby: Kate, what brought you to Pamplona in the first place? I have a feeling your story will be a fun one.

Kate: Love! First I fell in love with Swing dancing and then I fell in love with a Swing dancer! I was living in Bristol at the time, so after a period of long distance I moved to Pamplona to be with him. I still get to dance here, because my boyfriend is the co-founder of Big Kick, a Swing Dance Studio. They also teach at Poise, so all of my passions, dancing, yoga and design are coming together under one roof.

A: Isn’t it wonderful how things work out like that? And it makes me so happy that you’ve been able to combine your passions under our roof! So how did you come to be a knitted textile designer?

K: I’ve always been creative and I started playing around with textiles and making my own clothes when I was a teenager. I didn’t really discover and become passionate about knitting until I left high school. I vaguely remember trying to hand knit something as a child, but I think there were more holes than stitches! Ha! I improved my skills at University where I studied Fashion Design and specialised in Knitwear. After graduating I was offered a job in New York as a Knitwear Designer, which I couldn’t say no to. I moved there thinking I would stay for 18 months, but it turned into 5 years! It was a fantastic experience where I learnt a lot, but it was also very hard work and I missed my family, so in the end I moved back to England. I worked in London for a while and then moved to Bristol to study for a Masters where I went even deeper into the knitted textiles world, but this time I focused on interiors, rather than fashion.

A: I love hearing the stories of people who found their passion at a young age. I too was fascinated with fashion and interior design as a kid, but I never saw myself as a designer. I was more into the reporting side – the writing about and showcasing of the work. And between interiors and clothing design, do you have a preference? Which area do you find more challenging?

K: My preference is always switching. Sometimes I like the challenge of garment construction and creating something that people want to wear, and other times I like to focus more on the fabric itself and develop patterns and textural surfaces. Both are equally challenging, but in different ways.

A: What is your process? Do you have strokes of genius in the middle of the night or work with a diligent schedule? What’s your favorite part of creating a piece?

K: I always start a new project with research and drawing. I’m usually full of ideas and I find it hard to edit down and focus on one, so the beginning is challenging. Once I get into it I often become very absorbed in my work and find it hard to stop. When everything is flowing and the designs are coming together, that’s my favourite part! I’m a bit of a workaholic, and for the last few years I’ve worked from home, so there has been no getting away from it. That’s why I’m really excited about having my own design space, so I can have more of a routine and create a divide between work and home life.

A: Isn’t the “flow” part the best?! I love it when you’re working on something and time ceases to exist. And on the business side of things, what could you tell us about the fashion industry becoming more sustainable and ethical in its practices? Do you think real change is happening or are we stuck with the new fast-fashion cycle?

K: One of the reasons I am not working for big fast-fashion companies anymore is because I felt uncomfortable with being part of an unsustainable future. It’s also a reason why I was drawn to interiors, because there is more of an opportunity to design things that last. The life cycle of clothing is so short now, but we can’t always blame the fashion companies, because the consumers are equally responsible, they create the demand and the brands meet that. To really see change and a move away from fast-fashion, I believe it comes down to individuals being conscious about what they buy. We should be questioning where things come from and buying less, but better quality and making it last. There are a lot of small businesses that are trying to do things differently and addressing sustainability and ethics. I hope that the fashion industry will move towards a more sustainable future, but consumers need to start supporting that.

A: I couldn’t agree more. In Pamplona there are several small shops doing amazingly high quality work right here in their own studios. It’s exciting to see them thriving. And joining your passions now, how does teaching Yoga help with your design process?

K: Teaching yoga has meant studying yoga and having a consistent personal practice. This has helped me to find more balance in my life and design work. If I skip a few days of yoga I really notice it in my mind and body. Practicing regularly reminds me to live in the moment and I feel more creative, relaxed and patient. And believe me, knitting requires patience!

A: Tell me about it! I’m still trying to knit my son’s baby blanket and he turned 4 this summer! Ha. I don’t think I have what it takes. Maybe I’ll have it done by the time he goes off to University. And how’s the Spanish coming along?

K: I think learning Spanish is going to require more patience than knitting! Ha! I moved here 6 months ago and I could only say a few basic words. Now I can string a few words together to make a short sentence, so I suppose there’s been a little bit of progress, but not much. I’ve never learnt another language, so it’s a new process and very slow. I need to increase my confidence, so I’ll have to start practicing with everyone who comes through the door at Poise!

A: It will be excellent practise! I’m sure some people will mistake you for me, being another female native English speaker, so you’ll have plenty of opportunities. One last question, what is your favorite thing about Pamplona so far? As resident “guiris” (foreigners), we must be prepared for this question at all times!

K: I’ve moved around and lived in quite a lot of different places. In the past I’ve been really drawn to big cities, but I’m actually appreciating the qualities of a smaller place. Everything is a lot more convenient, a bit cheaper and the pace of life isn’t as crazy. I also like that it’s a green city with lots of parks and it’s not far from the mountains and the coast. If I could change anything, it would have to be about transportation. I wish there was a quick easy way to get to an international airport. Pamplona is great, but sometimes I want to go home!

A: I agree. Pamplona is a very liveable city and is truly a mix of city activity and the relaxation of nature. I also find it to be an easy place to raise a family, full of life and activities for families. Well, thank you, Kate, for letting me pry a bit into your creative life and sharing it on the Poise blog. Do you have anything else you’d like to share with the Poise Community?

K: I can’t wait to start spending more time at Poise, designing, teaching yoga and swing dancing. If you see me around, please say hello, or hola, and we can try and chat in Spanglish!

A: Well, we are incredibly happy to have you here! It’s so rewarding to see Poise grow and evolve to include more diversity of creativity in our space.

And there you have it. Don’t be surprised to see her around a lot in the coming months and I’m sure she’ll soon have up some drawings or inspiration or samples in her part of the space, making us all the richer for the creativity and warmth she’ll bring with her here.
