The two faces of the goddess  – Jivamukti Yoga meets Indian Dance 
Sunday 5 May 12:00 – 15:00
Join us in an exploration of the two aspects of the Goddess in Hindu Mythology. That of the Mother, Gauri and that of the Destroyer, Kali.
We will prepare our body-mind through a vigorous Jivamukti Yoga practice as well as narration of myth, to then delve into the rhythm and choreography of a Kathak dance piece, embodying the Goddess in her dual nature.
The seminar will be led by Polyxeni Aklidi & Christina Zanni.
Practitioners of all levels are welcome.
Cost: 20euros (booking is required)
