The Pelvic floor an Integrated Approach

NEW DATE TBC

Our Pelvic floor should resemble a taught trampoline but unfortunately very often our pelvic floor more often resembles a slack hammock! Pelvic floor problems are very common but rarely discussed or taught properly unless you have access to a pelvic floor specialist While clinical Pilates classes are a wonderful help, it is not enough as we also need to learn how to isolate the pelvic floor and learn the specialist exercises

In the seminar you will learn how to exercise the pelvic floor correctly but also equally importantly how to relax it.

Tango classes and workshops with Benjamin

New date tbc please register your interest

Originally from Argentina, Benjamin have been dancing and teaching for longer than 15 years. Based upon his knowledge of body biomechanics, the analysis of tango partner’s movements and the rhythms in the execution of tango steps, he developed his own teaching approach. It aims to deliver a clear, direct and unique tailor made learning experience to each of his students.

Having studied in prestigious art schools and universities in Argentine and Brazil, the multi-faceted artists built a solid carrier in the performance arts. For instant, Tango, Contemporary Dance, Argentine Folklore, etc., are part of his portfolio. Benjamin have teached and performed tango in many countries, e.g. Japan, Ireland, Germany, England, Spain, Mexico, Brazil, Argentine, etc.

His passion for tango was the trigger to create the “Charme Tango” dance company in Brazil and the “Tango Club UK”. Naturally, an international tango community was born, as an umbrella that holds several cultural and pedagogical projects led by Benjamin.

About the classes:

In this class we will study about expressing the tango musicality and emotions through organic movements and creative structures.

The tango class cover a range of techniques and knowledge of the movement of both bodies in the couple to develop fundamental skills, like balance, poise, dynamics management and precise coordination
