Artistic Director ShaLeigh Comerford offers SHAGA at
Global Breath Studio
Fridays: September 7th, October 26th, November 30th from 6-8pm
119 W Main Street, Suite 300 (3rd Floor), Durham NC 27701
Shaga is inspired by the movement language of Gaga, developed by Ohad Naharin. Durham-based Shaleigh Comerford, who trained with Ohad, has created an accessible, empowering and fun practice for anyone interested in liberating their body & their mind.
In this 2 hour workshop we begin with an hour Shaga class, as we learn to approach movement as a dynamic, healing, and ever-changing power, using evocative ideas and imagery in a safe, non-judgmental environment. Class begins slowly and builds in intensity to continuous motion, providing enjoyable exercise for both body and soul. The second half of the class offers a deep exploration of the movement language with sequences that allow us to actively explore our habits, expand our range and discover the endless possibilities of healing ways of moving in a welcoming, accepting atmosphere.
This workshop is for individuals who wish to open themselves to movement in new ways. Dancers, yogis, and movers of all kinds and abilities are invited to participate. No prior experience necessary.
Participants are encouraged to wear comfortable clothing and to move barefoot or in socks.
Global Breath Studio is located in downtown Durham and was built to embody the understanding that we are all part of the same global family, where we share our resources, and our compassion for all beings. Every practice at Global Breath supports LiveGlobally, a Durham-based 501c3 non-profit, committed to creating and supporting sustainable programs for the wellbeing of individuals and communities, locally and globally.
