Loved it! Intense and wonderfull. Thank you all for this beautifull 3 days ❤️
It really moves you
It was really THE BEST WAY to start my year! Jerome is such an incredible instructor together with his colleague, the program was varied and diverse with so many different ways to explore movement, dynamic, breath, music
Warmth, freedom, bliss
Powerfull and precious
Thank you so much for this fantastic retreat, I loved every bit of it, it was also a great group!
My pleasure to share love with you beautiful people, thanks a lot Jérôme for the opportunity to get this so special safe space, it mean so much to me ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜
A wonderful playground where I can (re)discover my movability. Not doing, just being. Being danced. No work, just play! Freedom. ❤️
I totally support what you’ve moved within me, because that is the gift I gave myself.
What Jerôme’s class brings me is a place of transformation and recycling of my emotions, through the body. I’m more self-aware in relationship as a result. It also strengthens my faith in human connection, because of the fun and kindness that develops.
In this space I can safely practice how to bring the relationship between my body and my mind into one of More equal and Playful cooperation, rather than one of discipline and domination. I become aware – can notice how – my Body/mind are always in dialogue, never static, and I am encouraged to move in the flow – yin/yang – without judgement or resistance. At least, that’s the goal 😉🙏💛
Getting over mental boundaries about being close to others
Interacting with others on a different level also helps me deal with daily social interaction
Chronic pain management, making it easier for my body to return to a natural flow state
And feeling more at ease in my own body
Magical, just magical. The space: created by beautiful souls and their energies 💫The body is indeed sore today! 😆 and the emotional body allows some soreness too, some sadness to sit along with the amazement of receiving love 💛🚿💦
Yes. And yesterday’s ending ceremony was the cherry on top. How important it is to be invited and to invite ourselves to connect and treat each other with kindness, love and care. We all know that as human beings and the mamals we are that this helps us thrive. 🙏 to the soul (I don’t know her name) who thought of inviting us to do this process.
I can’t tell you how much I have enjoyed and appreciated the class – the community the safe space the JOY in the body! 💫 you have (co) created something special 💛
So what really helps me as a musician is first the connection with my body, which i believe is integral in a performance, being musical or not, beyond that you also explore communication with your colleagues in a different way, as the same you would do in a improvisation in music, you would explore the movements and geometry of your own body in relation to another, counterpoint… so for me is also an ludic way of doing the same i would do in musical dialogue, but without all the self judgments and technical struggles with instruments
Last but not least, connecting your breathing to your movement is an excellent way of connecting better my breathing in my playing, in my case since i play wind instruments is even more, but for a string player or whatever would still be important and healthy, usually we tend to create unnecessary tension and disconnection with our breath when playing
