ANIMAL MOVEMENT is a dynamic practice based on the primitive movements and imitations of animals which contributes to the improvement of strength, the development of endurance, dexterity, balance and agility. Coordination of movements combined with speed contributes to the connection of the nervous system while at the same time slow isometric movements support and strengthen the nervous system.
On the weekend of March 18-19, we will do an introduction to animal movement techniques, we will see the basic positions and their transitions, we will create flows and finally we will integrate this knowledge into a combined flow of animal movement and yoga. We will explore how to use each movement, and how to compose your own flow.

Christina Skarmoutsou
Christina, after studying marketing, costume design, interior design and working in this field, chose to dedicate her energy to the transmission of yoga knowledge with the motivation to share with other people the benefits she experienced as a practitioner.
Thus, in 2016 she completed the first 200-hour Hatha Yoga teacher training with Andreas Proveleggios and began the teaching journey that continues to this day with joy and creativity.
She continued to train alongside notable teachers with the aim of both deepening the philosophy and techniques of yoga, as well as specializing in topics such as orthopedic and musculoskeletal diseases (Raja Yoga 300hr with Andreas Proveleggio, Biomechanics and Yoga with Tina Zymaraki, Yoga Anatomy at Yoga International).
Over the years, she wanted to enrich her knowledge about the body, movement and healing through it. She was trained and certified in Animal Movement by Panos Theodorou and in Aerial Yoga by Grafts.
Her lessons have variety, flow and harmony.

    Open presentation of the project “OVERFLOW” by artists in residence Silvia Pezzarossi & Anna-Maria Bayon

    Free Entrance 

    The project “OVERFLOW” is the result of the Artistic Residency of Silvia Pezzarossi & Anna-Maria Bayon at Akropoditi Dance and Performing Arts Centre.

    Project description 

    OVERFLOW is a contemporary dance and physical theater duet, performed by myself and the dancer Anna-Maria Bayon, which addresses adaptation and survival in society.
    Particularly struck by the radical, immediate and contradictory nature of current social dynamics, I asked myself “how do bodies survive between increasingly extreme, increasingly unpredictable laws and events?”
    The image behind this creation is that of a ‘contemporary shipwreck’. With a choreographic approach that feeds on an overdose of absurd and zany, naive and poetic imagination, it is an extravagant and staggering shipwreck that I wish to explore. The bodies of two women intertwine, support each other, counterbalance each other, adapt and save each other. Extreme, contradictory and insane like the challenges they have to face.
    If on the one hand my intention is to explore the power and beauty of a body that adapts, transmutes, fits together, endures and resists to the point of overflowing; on the other hand, I want to give voice to the humanity that runs through it: its need for the other, for empathy and mutual aid.
    Body and voice. Imagination and illusion. Control and laughter. Poetry and surprise.
    OVERFLOW is an invitation to resilience through a sensitive, confident and creative look at our society.
