Biodanza Workshop: Connect your essence
✨ Biodanza is a way of inner exploration and bonding with others.
✨Where through music, dance and group meeting exercises multiple revelations are experienced: about the beauty of oneself, about the beauty of the other, about the beauty of the universe.
✨ It is above all a human flourishing system that stimulates, among other things, affectivity, vitality and the joy of living.
✨It is a space where dance acts as a mirror that reflects the state of your inner being
. What is Biodanza?
Biodanza is a system of human integration, organic renewal, affective re-education and relearning of the original functions of life. Its methodology consists of inducing integrative experiences through music, movement, singing and group encounter situations.
– Biodanza proposes to start a process of existential growth and development. With regular continuity we can see the transformation that this practice causes in our daily lives.
– Provides knowledge of our emotions, collaborates with empathy, creation of healthy bonds, healing of traumas and difficult life situations, providing tools to create and grow.
– Facilitates community integration, cooperation, identification with others and the revaluation of shared spaces, the exchange of roles and the discovery and empowerment of the potentials that each one has.
Biodanza was created in 1974 in Chile, today it spans five continents with thousands of dancers and more than 100 training schools for Biodanza facilitators.
With great joy we bring these workshops to learn to dance life in community with fluency, respect and freedom!
