JOINT PLEASURES

regenerative investigations

The practice aims to start the day with moments to pause, to inquire, to breath and move with ease. Rather than understanding the asanas as a shape or a form to master, we will use the lens of the Axis Syllabus to discern the asanas in its fundamental principles. It might lead us to question and adapt well know yoga asanas, reconfigure daily performed body postures or explore and practice soothing movement patterns off the yoga mat.

 

I teach the practice with a body-positive perspective, as I wish to emphasize the importance of reconnection to our bodies. Can we reclaim our embodied experiences and finding a place of clarity and calmness?

DIANA THIELEN

I am a dance artist / performer / blogger (movementactivism.com) and teacher. I teach Axis Syllabus, as well as practices in dance, performance, body politics and yoga. I graduated at SEAD / Salzburg (2004-2008) and am currently a student of Gender Studies / Educational Studies (BA) in Berlin. My work includes interdisciplinary perspectives that relate to my interest in queer theory, intersectional feminism, and postcolonial studies, as well as pondering and exploring private realities as a queer woman.  ​As a teacher, I see my strength in my genuine wish to support each individual’s journey. Their experiences, as well as, their curiosities, doubts, vulnerabilities and lust to move and study are invited, to create a safe learning atmosphere.
